Have you decided on who going to do your tuning ? That will be a big factor in how much you enjoy a non vgt setup
Darkside, Tyrant or Truck Source Diesel probably

I'm kickin myself for buying the sct now because tyrant is about my only option. It does run really clean and smooth, I just like trying other people's tuning styles to see what I like best. Really would like to try tsd myself.


Regarding your cost concern, did you ever care much about cost on modding your 6.4 ? You're gonna be coming up on $80k+ on this truck too so what difference is 82k vs 85k ? (Numbers just an example, actual will obviously vary)


I was gonna keep mine simple but after driving my 6.0 this thing just don't have the power it needs. Some point this year I'm either going to have h&s do something just like Mike's 13 or maybe just compounds and 100% injectors


Did Pete's tuck have a cam and/or ported heads ? He had 15% injectors right ?

Got some shots of it next to this stock height silver 17 Platinum truck. It's actually Drew from D&Js truck.

Do you know what the height of the truck is at now at its highest point?

Highest hard point would be the cab lights and I ckear 7'-0" garage openings by a few inches. So I would say top of those is 69-70" while on stock size tires

Really that low??? I was worried Id have to go down to 4400 springs and remove rear block completely. Ideally I need to be at 80 max.

Thanks for the info! Very clean truck btw

Just went out and measured, between 77-78" to the top of my cab lights. It's hard to get an exact measurement but it's somewhere in there. When I go to 33x12.50 tires I'll lose some height there as well.
