Lol working on that too. Considering a Edge Insight of Evolution to also provide extra gauges to view. Or a BullyDog GT / H&S. I kinda want to give flexibility to go delete later on.

Personally I would not and do not see a reason to install any after market tuner, etc.. that duramax will have more torque and power than you will ever need..

My 2007 is stock.. it gets 13.5 pulling an Alpine fifth wheel.. 20 mpg without.. ive seen a lot of guys install tuners and programmers and have short longevity on the drivetrain.

It’s your rig... enjoy it....

^^^^ X2 I totally agree !!! I towed a 34' Holiday Rambler (10,000 pounds) travel trailer with a 93 Ford 7.3 NA diesel. That had 185HP/358 pounds of torque. I seldom had to downshift that old 4 speed E4OD transmission and got 11 towing/16 solo MPG.

Today's diesels from any of the three major brands has more than double and sometimes triple the HP/torque with a much improved transmission. For loads up to the max rated towing weight, there's just no need to "chip" a modern diesel. Maybe for "braggin' rights" but certainly not for "needed performance".....

"Chipping" today's diesel engines is, in far too may situations, just asking for problems that are non-existant in a stock engine configuration.

Thank yu will like the airlift system.. I had mine installed in 2007 by dealer when we bought our 2007 GMC classic... also got the onboard compressor and gauge unit. I like be8ng able to adjust load pressure while driving to change for road conditions.. no issues since installed. Very reliable, levels truck nicely, when empty I run about 20 psi and ride is acceptable for a pickup truck.
