HELP with new truck

Looking at a new truck, F350 Platinum.

As a trades man and my company fleet discount i'm getting a sweet deal on a new truck, But thing is I can't decide between a 14 and 15

My plan is to add a BDS 6" with fox shocks and leafs in the rear, 20x10 Fuel nutz on DC fun country 37x12.5 tires and 4.30 Gears

Problem is when it comes to motor mods. the 15 apparently has new locks or codes that wont let the aftermarket delete the DPF and tune the truck. I want to get the best Fuel Economy as i possibly can, most guys I know with similar mods are getting better than stock in cases much better economy with the DPF gone and 37/38" tires. Good buddy of mine gets around 1000km to a tank with 38x15.50 tires on 8" lift.

Is the new turbo worth the extra fuel burning? trucks are the same price, i'm getting them $140 over cost.
