mnpowerstroke99.5 As far as the plow goes you want to keep the plow frame as level as you can so your cutting edges wear evenly. I have a 2 1/2" leveling kit and 285/75/16 tires and I'm maxed out on the adjustments for leveling the a-frame on my Fisher Xtreme V plow. I'm going to fab up some pieces to weld to the back of the A-frame to get another set (already has 3 holes)of holes to lower the plows A-frame down so when the cutting edge wears down I can still get it level again. As for the 4" exhaust I bought the stainless kit with muffler from Diamond Eye Performance for a little under $400 off of eBay. It's slightly louder but not much.

Technically, you could lift the truck as high as you want but you would have to build a custom plow mount to maintain the correct angles. It would be pointless to have a truck with 6+ inches of lift then have your plow mount hanging down.

As far as chip and exhaust, I'm a fan of my DP Tuner. I don't have an opinion on an exhaust because I just run a straight pipe on mine. As always, before you add a tuner, make sure you invest in a good set of gauges or else engine melt down may occur.

In addition, please don't be afraid to spell out words, use capitalization, or punctuation on this forum. The easier you make it for people to read your post, the more you will get replying to you.
What he said.

We would be happy to get you setup with a chip and custom tunes when you are ready for them.

Feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions.
