What are your future plans with the truck? The reason i ask is "upgrades" may just be a waste of time and $$ if your aiming for big numbers.

However, a solid TQ, valvebody and or shiftkit will help dramatically. As well as a 6.0 tranny cooler and deep pan

If your just gonna run a chip a JW VB would be suffcient for the "average driver" if you feel the need to floor it everywhere you go i would get a good TC as well.

I believe you can either run one or the other (vb/shift kit) im not for sure though

The hankooks have been good to me so far. Not too loud on the road pretty decent grip in the nasty stuff.

BTS or JW are the best places to get a VB.
