SCT Touchscreen extreme?

Has anyone used the new sct touchscreen? Is it any good? Im shopping around for a tune for my truck, and I was wondering if this is the one to get considering that sct seems to be most recomended by ford owners. This is my first tune, and my first diesel. I work construction and snow plow in the winter with my truck. Can anyone recommend something different for me and let me know if I shouldn't purchase the SCT touchscreen extreme. Thanks.

Welcome to The Diesel Garage! Everyone has there own preferance, the SCT Livewire (touchscreen) will have gauge readings built into it. So no need to buy gauges. The only issue I can forsee is if left in the truck people can see the unit and be tempted to steal it and I'm not sure how they hold up to extream hot weather with the windows rolled up. I prefer the old school pillar gauges. Even with the screen turned up on the brightess setting,not sure if your gonna see it if mounted on top of the dash with the sun beating down on it. It's just a matter of preferance, to each thier own!

The Livewire is ugly as h3ll. I haven't seen the touchscreen but it looks much better and I think it will work better as you can move it easier then the livewire.

I agree, too big, too ugly. I was looking for the same as above, but because of the help of the wonderful folks here I decided to get the SCT X3 with Custom tunes from Eric, and the Edge Insight with EGT placed on the pillar for monitoring. I love the whole package. I can see any parameter I want and it's not so intrusive.
