Not everyone says go with DT long tubes. Depending on your use, the short tubes might be a better option. Long tubes make power on the top end but sacrifice some low end power. Short tubes are the opposite so depending on how you use your truck, long tubes might not be the best investment.

well i am slowly setting it up for a supercharger, i dont like to beat it but its a truck and i live in the country so it gets used for work also. I more or so have the focus of overlanding with it and set up so if something does happen i am ready not the intent of beating it. I occasionally pull a trailer and after i am done being deployed i plan to fab up my own offroad trailer for camping and such. Its still a daily driver for now i am just looking at ways to increase power right now i suppose.

I heard they leak real bad. Even URD recommends a special crush gasket to go with those headers. I am still on the fence on which exhaust components I want to go with. I think I am going to wait until next spring at this point.

the reason that the DTLT are more expensive than the JBA's is because they use a better steel and come ceramic coated. if you get the JBA's ceramic coated, their price goes up another 100+ dollars

If you want it to tow and be used for work, I'd do some research on the shorties. It's more power where you can actually use it daily.
