    Sounds like a nice truck. Is the MCC and custom tuning worth it? I'm getting to that point now where I would like to get those. I like to tinker too, but I like a few creature comforts and the looks of the 4th gens. Plus my payments are pretty cheap (under $300).

    Idk, I haven't played much with it, I paid a guy to write my tunes, told him what I had and was after.

    It is a nice truck, I love it, I'm up over 500, probably younger worse credit, and an older vehicle

    I love my 2nd gen....S&B cai, Air Dog 150, Edge Juice w/ Attitude, built trans, Bilsteins, Toyo Open Country ATII's...just had the truck sprayed about two months ago. It is in very good condition for it's age. It has 197k on it and had a rough life before I bought it. I think the turbo may be headed south as I am burning a little oil now and the impeller is oily. That will be a springtime project. It does ride like a stagecoach but it can handle.whatever you throw at it. I get 16-17 mpg just beating around town with it. My last two gassers were about 14.

    Fast forward a few years....the old black girl is running strong. I just did brakes and tires on it a short time ago. I went with Hankook Dynapro ATM3's. Nice and quiet, 10ply. Next year will be 10 yrs of ownership....and I have put a whopping 50k on it lol. I have been DD'ing a Legacy GT and to get in the truck for a few days I realize how loud the damn thing is! There is no sound like the 24V Cummins.
