First off hyper...welcome to TDG...second off, it depends on what mods you are looking for...suspension wise, what works for the previous years..*05-07* will work for the 08's...as far as the airbox..dont mess with it, it flows more then enough air for what you may need. Tuning, that is still be sorted out..but SCT, Superchips and a few others are starting to release and show off their products. Exhaust wise..MBRP seems to be the leader as of now.

Once again, welcome to TDG and show us some pics of your rig..we love pics.

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

Are you sure about that? Im pretty sure there are enough differences in the 08's suspension that the 05-07 stuff wont work.

Guys, the leaf springs may be longer, but that doesnt really bother much of anything, the basics of the suspension hasnt changed much from then to now.

And yes, I am sure about the previous stuff working. I am a member of a few boards, and I have heard it first hand from other members that have bought suspensions for their trucks. I dont get into spouting off things that I dont know about, unless its a speculation thread of some sort.

Well if the leaf springs are longer than they wont work (sure you could use blocks). Meaning the 05-07 kits wont work. Also, the frame from the doors forward is different (according to Diablo on FTW) and some of the bracketry is different. Sure the basics havent changed, but enough has changed that the kits are different for 05-07 and 08+. I dont know about you but i wouldnt try to jerry rig a kit to fit my $45K+ truck.

the front coils will work if you use blocks in the rear I'd imagine. But anyways, I'd get the AFE intake for the whistle, besides they say it adds 30rwhp
