New diesel owner...

So I see what I've been missing out on in power!!!!!! Just got my 2008 F250 Lariat 4x4 Crew so far I like it but someone needs to WOW me with some upgrades (wheels, tires, exhaust.....) Question if you buy a Lariat does it automatically come with leather????

for the exhaust, the duramax 07 emissons guys are cutting out the dpf/cat and setting sensors aside unmounted and putting in a strait pipe. for wheels/tires everyone has there own opinion. i'm not sure what to refer you for on the 08s. but for tires I'm partial to BF Goodrich all terrains 35x12.50 on a 4.5" donahoe racing lift.

04 Silverado 2500HD LB7/Allison, EFI live by duramaxtuner.com with DSP5, 4" MBRP turbo back straight pipe, polished 5" tip, 5% tint, riding on 285 fierce attitudes, many more mods....

The lariat always comes with leather.


And I've used 305's on my truck(02) with great success. No tire rubbing. I plan to put a set of 305 Goodyear Silent Armor's on in the fall.

very good thanks a bunch.... stock tires are really crappy looking

I can't wait for a new set.... I had 305/75/17 on my 150 crew and it looked awesome.... do you think 315's would rub?
thanks again

I would get a brush guard, air intake, exhaust and I'd hold off as far as chips go and see what comes out in the next 6 months or so. JMO

I think 315's will definitely rub. If your planning to keep it stock height then the 305's would be the best chice.

315s will definetely rub if you don't lift it. If I was you I would put a 1.5", 2" level kit on it. It would probably still fit in your garage, and it will make your truck look so much better. As far as brands of tires, I have run BFG, Nitto, & Toyo on my trucks. So far I like the Toyo M\T the best. But they are a bit more aggressive. The Toyo A\T is also a really good tire. Don't buy Nitto.

It is up to you..but I would recommend going with BFG TA KO's...awesome tires...and whatever else you want is your decision. It all comes down to personal taste.

Go Greyhound, and leave your luggage with us. *maybe not intentionally*
