Too many choices

I don't know what tuner I should go with. I know this issue has been beat to death but even after reading all the posts, magazine articles and talking to people. I'm still just as lost as before. I have figured out what I am looking for now I just need your help to figure out what company offers it. So what I want is something that is safe for my truck, gives me monitoring capabilities, gives me good performance and better fuel mileage. Thanks in advance for your help.

Tony Wildman Chip!

you can change positions on the fly, its custom burned so you can have an economy tune or safe tow tune, etc, etc. and will be MUCH better than a "stock" edge or hypertech type tuner.

A chip is the only way to go then. You will be very happy with it, trust me.

Regular gauges are the best way to go IMO. There are many different mounting options.
