Either will handle that load better than a 460 in stock configuration. No reason to mod just to spend money.

I would take the money you would spend on a gear swap (~$2k) and put that towards a newer diesel or V10 that can handle the load better.

True, I was thinking most additives would be converted to carbon at that point. If not, it could be damaging to the cat.

Shops will replace bed sides, but if you have to mess with the inner side at all its usually cheaper to replace the bed, especially for a long bed (short boxes are hard to find).

Bigger tires with cutout flares would be better. Same axle clearance with lower CG. Hell, even cutouts with 37s would be better, room for wider tires on those dunes.

I agree entirely. I had a 4" lift and 35s and would never go higher. If I got another SD it would be leveled and on narrow 35s (like a 285/75r18).


No, you can't. I BARELY cleared 35s with a...

4.5" is backspace, not offset. Backspace is only useful if you also know wheel width. Offset is a good indicator because it is the measurement of the hub face to wheel center. You're 10" wide wheels...

pH and additive concentrations aren't in the correct ranges without the proper coolant/water mix. Running straight coolant is pretty foolish, though possibly better than adding tap water.
