I don’t have any experience with them, but they’re supposed to be great little guns from people I know and trust. Personally I’m a fan of the CZ 457, but I don’t think you can go wrong with either.

You might as well add the supercharger now. Itíll swap over to the new engine (if you keep it the same) when the time comes. I agree. Supercharger and gears will bring that truck to life.

If it was me I’d run the 4.30 without question. The 10 speed will make it more enjoyable, but I THINK it’s only available with the 7.3 and 6.7. I don’t think you can get it with the 6.2.
