Depends what your end goal is for the truck.
Is yours the classic body style or the new body style? The new style is an LMM and has the DPF, the classic does not.
The PPE air box mod is a good mod and will flow just as much air and filter better then any CAI. Flo-pro makes a great 5" exhaust that is stainless steel, sounds great. But anything MBRP
is a good product too, a lot of deals out there right now on them.
For tunning, this is where your end goals really come in. I have and love EFI live. But EFI live is only going to perform as good as the guy writing the tunes. I ran the Edge J/A when I first had the truck, and the only good thing was the 24 mpg highway. Those are the only 2 tuners I have personally used.
If you plan to upgrade your tuning I would suggest a Transgo JR for your trans at a minimum, if your planning on adding over 100 rwhp then a full build is in order.
Good luck with the new rig!
