Yes L&M and Ripp partnership is a recent development,
I'm not sure they even have any tuning ready for the 2012's yet.

For sure!

E-Fan, Catch Can, Throttle Body, Headers (LT or shorties will do)
will all be a benefit to you later anyway, so doing them now is a good start.

I would wait for the guys to get the bugs out of the 12' tuning for a few months if I were you.

Save your $ and plan for a Spring install (when the snow's gone)

Early adopters often pay the price by being involuntary test mules.

Lean? hell no,
The computer will adjust timing to meet requirements.

Run a tuner (canned tune will do) and good fuel and it will be fine.
(Never run less than 89 octane) I've never had a custom tune with all those mods

I run Petro Can or Husky 94 octane all year round.

The first time my truck ever saw a custom tune was with my Ripp install.

If you're still concerned, add a Triple Gauge A-pillar pod to your list along with some Auto Meter gauges
... a wide band hooked will show you if you have to worry about being lean or not.

Same thing I did on my stock down tube,
Drill hole, weld threaded bung to pipe.

( a bung for the sensor comes with wideband gauge)
