In the meantime, I was considering exhaust and a tune...maybe a CAI.
I think @2012platinum will agree with me, but I leveled mine and drove it for about 6 months and then turned around and did the McGaughys 6.5" lift and I wish I had just done a lift from the beginning.

I'll definitely have to consider it looking at your trucks on here.
Mine is a 5.0 and your right, it does sound pretty good.
I just thought a little more rumble might be nice.

That's a great looking Platty Dave. I am thinking of doing a 2.5/3" level on mine, something like you had before the lift. Any advice on brand of level will be appreciated.
