If Pro Charger had something that gave 400/400 for 4-5k yes.
That's all its a nice option for the money, lift first.
my buddys '08 can smoke his 35's..... if i could go back, i would have a supercharger over lift/tires.

If you look at SAS builds people are breaking upwards of 8k on parts alone.

True, but if you got a Front end off of another truck in a salvage yard, that would be a good percentage of the money you saved. Me and my friend got a 14 bolt out of a Salvage yard and it only cost him $100.

Depends what state you live in but pretty much walk away if they
are charging you 4800 or more out the door. I know tax rates play
a role.

The thread question just depends on personal preferences, but I will
say this, I love my SC and don't regret it at all. So much more
responsive to drive. I think those who haven't been in a
supercharged truck don't know what they are missing. There are
cheaper lifts out there to augment the investment in the SC.

Mine has dropped 1MPG
I just got in on the ultragauge group buy so
I will have more accurate numbers, but my
calculations thus far have a minimal decrease
unless I am hard on the throttle.
