This might be a dumb question, but is 70k too many miles on a truck to invest in a goose tune and new live valve shocks and springs? I bought my 2019 new and love it. I'm trying to decide if it would be silly to spend $8k to upgrade it vs. buying a gen 3. I like the looks of my gen 2 more than the new ones. What do you all think? Pics for reference.

Nope it’s fine. Regular maintenance goes a long way.
Agreed, are you sure you need new spring? Why dont you just get the shocks done with seals , nitro and new fluid that’ll be like 750-1000. The tune isn't a life or death thing…

You should’ve done the tune earlier haha, but 70k is absolutely not too late. If you really like the truck those upgrades are much cheaper than a Gen 3. How many miles do you drive per year or plan to? Seems like you do 15-20/year now?

I added Goosetuned at 80k and wish I'd have done it sooner! I don't like the Gen 3 looks either.......Red headed stepchild.....Gen 2's still rule in the looks department. All the creature comfort, nanny perks, and pretty dash lights be damned!.....but I do like the foldover work/laptop surface console......

About a month ago I purchased a 2018 802A with 114k miles. I received my batch of large Cobb/Goose Tuned boxes just yesterday... Stage2 kit plus some other bits. Take care of her and she'll take care of you.

Someone said it other than me...AMEN. Now, if we can figure out the fold-over console, that's be sweet:favorites13:
