2001 Puller

Ok need some advice from people who know. I have a 2001 long wheel base f250 4x4. It has a 3 or 4 inch body lift running 315's. 5 inch exhaust with a tuner, tons of power. I want to turn it into a solid puller. Thinking about dropping body down and running 285's. Any suggestions? Is there a good brake up grade? Fuel mileage is terrible with present tires and a good load. Any advice is welcome.

Custom tuning, intake, exhaust, and you should have a good rig, what type of loads and what kind of weight are you trying to pull? What type of trailer are you using (or going to use) some of that may help

What kind of puller, like a trailer or a sled?

Don't plan on anything real heavy, 15000 max. 35 foot boat about 8000/10000 lb. I was thinking about putting a set of duals underneath the rear.
