I agree with Hawkins115, you should get the gauges first, but if you get a smaller towing chip, or economy chip you should be alright if your smart about how you drive it.

without guages, you could melt some things down -- especially with no way to let her breathe when you're getting on it... will be hard to resist with a chip I guarantee!

If you don't mind being loud cut your exhaust off before the cat and if your a cat-less 7.3 then cut the exhaust off at the bottom of the down pipe.

I havent been a member long but ive learned one good thing...you need gauges bad...i have a friend with a 05 king ranch with 35XXX miles on her. Its in the shop right now getting a ton of work done to it b/c he had a bully dog powerpup in it and he did some serious damage. I dont know exactly what but the mech said he had burn marks on his compressor wheel!
