Default Which brand super chip

I have a 04 Dodge 5.9L Cum. Diesel 4x4. I want to purchase a programmer to get better fuel mileage and increase performance. I am getting 10.8 mpg pulling my travel trailer, but if I could get two or three more mpg it would save me a lot of money.
But which brand?! I have read the ads in Summit and on the Internet. It looks like to me that Superchips and Bully Dog are top choices. However, the SuperChips Flashpaq 3855 seems to be the most economical with best features. Bully Dog is a little pricey
Any one have experence with the Flashpaq 3855 on a Dodge diesel?
Thanks for you input.

A buddy of mine has a diesel Dodge and has the Bully Dog. He really likes the multiple functions and how his truck runs with it on. I've never used Bully Dog. Had an Edge on a previous diesel truck and I liked that one a lot.

Don't forget your EGT gauge and probe...you'll want that.

Welcome to the forum.... I have been looking into this for a little while now and I found that BANKS offers the best product for the $$. Bully Dog is good but BANKS has built there name on building after market parts for Dodge! When I trade the 1500 in I will be going with the Banks. On another note Banks tech support is the best!!!
