got my tuner and exhaust... man its like a new truck.

5" downpipe back flo-pro (DPF delete, CAT delete, muffler delete)
Power Hungry Performance tuner with 35, 65, 90, 140 hp tunes... Tuner works well but the Spartan will be better to have later this year. Thanks for the help Josh!

Awesome stuff!

What have you been seeing for fuel mileage so far? Tow with it yet?

We have a few 6.4's at work, they're great to tow with, but the fuel mileage, stinks.
