    The best i got with the lift and heavy mud tires was 16.0 and that was all interstate driving. I never got a chance to see how it did with the stock tires. It probably would be somewhere around 18.0 on the highway with the stock tires and no lift

    Dont know a whole lot about the exhaust but I do know that the dpf restricts the air flow so much that its pointless to do anything to the exhaust with the dpf still on there. Once you see the inside of the dpf if you ever take it off you will realize just how much that thing restricts the flow

    Yeah i bought the spartan programmer and a dpf/cat delete pipe about 5 months ago. The install was rough! I wouldnt want to be removing and installing that thing very often. Luckily i have a mod friendly dealer so i havent had to put the stock pipe back on. Iam sure once you do it a few times it gets easier but it took me and a buddy about 4 hours. Spent almost an hour just trying to get one of the sensors out. It wouldnt be that bad if everything was easy to get to. You definetly need quite a few extentions and deep sockets.

    no i dont mind at all just let me know when your ready and I wouldnt mind helping install it if you need it. I really cant tell much of a difference and neither can my wife and she drives it as much as i do. You plaining on taking the dpf off and putting a tuner on your truck?

    you also will not need new shocks with the newton kit because it comes with shock extentsions that allow you to use your stock shocks.

    Well my 250 only set about 3/4 of an inch higher in the back stock. They come fairly level stock so if you lift the front any its going to be higher in the front. The track bar spacers that comes with newton lift serve the same purpose as a adjustable track bar or track bar bracket. Just not as expensive. If you go up 2 or 2.5 inches in the front your going to need taller blocks for the back to get it level. these blocks and u bolts also come with the newton kit.

    I like it alot considering it was only like 250 bucks. It came with spacers for your track bar so your axle doesnt shift to the drivers side. People say that the spacers is the cheap way to keep your axle in line but it looks and holds up fine to me. It also came with shock spacers for the front shocks to keep the factory travel on the shocks. Also came with a spacer for your drive shaft to keep that symetry the same as stock. Its a well made kit. The only problem was the dealership could not get the castor angle correct when i got an alignment because of the lift. They have castor bushings out there just for lifted trucks just havent gotten around to buying them. Not really in a rush because the truck drives fine
