Default Bully Dog vs Superchips vs Diablo?

I just purchased a Bully Dog GT for a really good price.
What am I missing from not getting the others? I am open to switching if there is something that I can justify.
-My biggest concern is MPG.
-I just installed a CAI and have the tuner and cut my resonator off
-regular stock 17" wheels with no desire to go larger

What else can I benefit from the others that I cannot have with the GT? I dont know alot of tuning, and only really care about MPG more than anything else.

I think the Bully Dog is a good tuner for your year truck. I know the Superships might be a little better for the 04s but not too much more. If you dont plan on doing tons of mods to the truck then you may as well keep the Bully Dog GT. If you do plan on doing more then make the switch when you need to

i agree, if you're just worrying about mileage, no need to change as they all are about the same.. but if you get into performance modding, sc an diablo have more options that you can adjust.. does the bd do any kind of datalogging that sc an diablo do?

How do you like your Bully Dog anyways? Does it seem to work well/ noticeable gains?

I have had mine for a week or so. I cannot be the best judge on it. I do notice with some settings tweaked it seems to shift better and I am about 14-17mpg so far.
