Mrs. Santa Just Gave You $2500 To Spend....

any way you want as long as you spend it on your completely stock 2010 truck. Since you only have 16,667 miles on it and it is under warranty doing a dpf delete is out of the question. What mods do you do?

2010 F350 Lariat FX4 CC Long Box, Line X, Pueblo Gold, H&S Mini Maxx, DPF/DOC Delete, Flo Pro Down Pipe Back Stainless Exhaust, Flo Pro EGR/Cooler Delete with High Flow Intake Elbow, S&B CAI, MBRP Exhaust Tip

save it until warranty runs out and then put dpf delete on it or say eff it and do it anyway.

Get an H&S Mini Maxx before the EPA steps in too far and bans them!

other ideas:

Leveling kit with MT's
Grille
T-Rex side vents
Line-X bedliner
Intake

I would spend it on exterior mods like a icon lift kit set up and/or tires. I wouldn't do any performance mods if I couldn't delete the dpf

I would go with a H&S Mini Maxx, exhaust,, and intake, but thats me. If you are that worried about warranty its probably best to leave it stock. However, its not that hard to find a dealer willing to work with you on power mods.

Other things to consider:
Carli Suspension 4.5" Starter System
Bed Cover
BedRug
Lights
Wheels/tires



ICON Vehicle Dynamics | S&B Intakes | MBRP Exhaust | American Force Wheels | Diamond Eye | AFE Intakes | Carli Suspension | Industrial Injection | Garrett Turbos | FASS | Method Wheels | Bilstein Shocks | Airdog | KMC Wheels | Spartan | RSouth Bend Clutch | SCT | Edge Products | ATS Diesel | Bullydog | BMF Wheels | AMP Research | & much more....

I just got a pure performance 4.5" triple threat lift kit from Mrs Clause! That was $2400 shipped with Bilsteins. You could do the 4" kit cheaper, and then get an intake also. Or Icon makes a great kit too from what I hear (I didn't want blocks in the rear though). I would highly recommend an H&S tuner with an exhaust and intake, but if that is truly out if the question then do a lift or leveling kit and maybe some tires

2009 Lariat CCSB :
Tuned with H&S Black Maxx (HD300 series)
4" DP back exhaust, AFE PG7 Intake
Flo Pro EGR delete with intake elbow
Sun Coast Fully Built Tranny
Diesel Site coolant filter & CAT EC-1 coolant
Pure Performance Triple Threat 4.5" lift w/ Bilsteins
37" Nitto Trail Grapplers on XD Hoss wheels
Recon lighting all around
Nathan "K5LA" locomotive air horns

Its up to you really. You could lift with tires and rims. If it was me i would put it in savings and keep saving tell you hit that100,000 mark and go all out and do it all at once. If you lift it and put bigger tires on it now you will hate the MPG even more haha

put the $2500 in an interest bearing account so that when the diluted oil from all the regens wipes out the engine, you'll have money to put towards another one
