Default Looking to buy a Superchip, any ideas?

I am looking to get more HP and better gas milage. My first concern is better gas milage. The more HP is not a priority, just a bonus, lol. Does anyone have any ideas on what kind/model/make I need to get? Also where is the best place to order from? And are they hard/easy to install?

I have a 2004 4.7L 2WD Quad Cab 1500

I have had a couple tuners and the best one for my truck is the Diablo Sports Preditor. One of this forums supporting vendors sells them and that is where I got mine. It was really great to get excellent customer service and they will take time to help you on the phone for as long as needed. Just my 2 cents.

I wanted to recommend the Predator as well, but always hate to thread dump if they are already sold on another product.

The Predator is available for your year model now and definitely has some of the best tuning flexibility around.

I'm happy with the Flashpaq, never tried the Diablo.
