to Powerstroke.org. You will get more action over here. You can do the diy tymar filter for about 50 bucks. Get yourself some gauges first before you chip the truck. If you looking for mileage get yourself a custom tune for milage from DP Tuner or Tony Wildman. You probobly won't get a hole lot better mileage with your lift and tires you have right now unless you downsize some.

First off you should find out if you still have stock gears. Or did some one replace those gears for bigger tires. That is unless you put the lift on yourself, but I am assuming you purchased the truck like this.

What is the MPG you have right now. What MPG are you wanting to obtain.

he shouldnt have to regear with only running that small of tires... i would say just get some gauges, intake, exhaust, and a DP tuner set for milage.... as for intakes the DIY Tymar intake is the cheapest but the AFE stage 2 is the best filtration system.. and any exhaust any brand will do as long as its a 4" kit straight piped....
