PPE is probably the best. I run the DiabloSport Predator. Like it but it does run hot. I have stock exaust and on the 85 hp setting it's hit 1487 F. Get gauges! It seems most people stay away from Banks and Bullydog on the dmaxs. Don't know exactly why.

06 Sierra 2500 4wd lb. Predator, S&B, MBRP duals-no cat, Quadzilla gauges, Allison Jr., Riderite air bags, PPE Tie rod sleeves, egr plate / finger stick. 02 Chevy 3500 8.1L 4wd dump 9' Fisher mm2, sander. 03 Kubota L4630. 80'S or 90's Komatsu pc50. 89 d250 5.9 which may someday go into something.:

We have seen the best fuel milage increase with the tripple dog from Bullydog , but the juice w/attitude seems to be the most user friendly and does a great job protecting things , for all out power EFI live or PPE work great but you need to know what you are doing changeing paramiters .

I've had really good luck with the edge for a chip ( the options are nice ) for the normal driver. I really like the PPE for a programmer and you'll be able to get some more power out of it. Both work really well.

If it is an LLY, my vote would be for Predator v2.02
