Advice

I currently have an F350 XLT 4x4 with the 6.4L Diesel, completely stock. Bought it last fall, put 1200miles on it and parked it while I've been in Afghanistan since. The most I pull with it is a Lance in-bed camper and a toy trailer with a couple of ATVs.

I'd like to get a dpf/doc delete kit with a spart tuner. I'd also like have a lift kit to allow me to run at least 35" tires (would like wide tires with wide rims).

Don't intend on racing it or beating it. Just want to enjoy the benefit of new regens with maybe a little more power. I generally drive my trucks easily.

That said, I come home from Afghanistan for a 1 month leave and I'd like to know where I can go to get this done for me (I live in Grantham NH). I'd like to get it down as quickly as possible so I can enjoy it most ot the time on my vacation?

Any advice would be much appreiciate.

If youre feelin feisty you can do it yourself in one day. The tires will fit fine, but looks better with a leveling kit. The DPF/DOC delete takes maybe two hours to do. Its much easier removing both units instead of just the DPF. The Spartan tuner you just plug it in and load up a tune. really simple.

Im up in RC-N, Spann, if youre in the area.
