Reliability question

Already had great responses on my other threads figured I'd get some opinions.

06 F250 4x4 SD CC (30,xxx miles): I want to add the 7 inch Donahoe lift and 37" tires. I will drive this vehicle for probably the next 4 years around 15-20,xxx miles a year. How reliable will the truck stay? Performance wise I'm probably going to go with 4.30 or 4.10 gears, exhaust and an SCT Livewire tuner. I won't be doing any towing just daily driving.

Thanks alot

Reliability will remain Very good, but gearing ( 4:30 ) is a must to keep your milage. The SCT is a perfect choice. make sure you recalibrate your tire size along with the gear ratio. This with make life on the trans much better.

Man you 2 guys are all OVER this board. Thanks alot guys! Another performance opinion question....do you 2 think it's worth it for an aftermarket intake? I was looking at the AFE but most say the stocker is just fine.

The AFE stage 2 proguard 7 is a very good intake and I highly reccomend it. Raul has some really good prices on them also.

Sounds like you got a great plan for your truck. It is gonna be a nice ride when you get done. I agree with the SCT for your tuning needs. It is the best for a 6.0L hands down.
