New here looking for advice and friends

Hello fellow members..... Jacksonville Fl area, 2003 6.0 PowerStroke owner looking for any advice on modifying/upgrading. Open to any ideas, currently wanting new tires, have Goodrich Rugged Trail 265/75R16, not impressed, looking for inexpensive now till my planned purchase of new rims next year. Currently in my field of vision is the Uniroyal Liberator A/T, Wally World has them for $110, anyone have experience with these? Also interested in putting some Banks Performance items onboard my rig. Thanks in advance for everyones help.

Welcome to the org So what do you not like about the BFGs? Are they worn out. That is what came on my truck stock and I loved them for over 60,000 miles. They wore flat across the tire, would stick like glue until they were thin, were really quiet too. They weren't much for an offroad tire but don't think they were intended to be.

Welcome to the site! You have come to the right place for both advice and friends. There is an abundance of both here. As far as performance for your 6.0L I would look into the SCT for tuning. The bank stuff is the way to go. That is just my opinion. I am sure there will be others along to give their input on this subject as well. Good luck in your search and again welcome!

Welcome Aboard The ORG!!
Get yourself a good exhaust to lower your EGT. But some gauges to keep a closer eye on those temperatures. Factory gauges just don't cut it! Find a nice downloader. SCT seems to be popular on this site. Bully Dog with Outlook works well with me! I like to be able to shift on the fly when needed and also keep an eye on my vitals.
Good Luck!! Enjoy your stay!!

Banks is overpriced but effective...did i say overpriced?
SCT is hard to beat for the $$
Have fun!
