Smarty vs H&S

Well I have a smarty jr right now but thinking about switching to H&S... So let's hear from the experts on which you guys think is better, I have pillar gauges now but I kinda wanna go to a mini if I get H&S or would the xrt pro do fine?

I tried a smarty on my 2012, Smarty used to own the market but they are getting their azz handed to them by h&s. Smarty customer service is non existent, Bob could be replaced by a bucket of sand.

I run a XRT Pro now and its awesome, no issues at all. AND you can actually call, email, ect H&S and they actually have answers to questions.

Im running a XRT-PRO im telling you it has transformed the truck i get 15 in the city 18.5-19 on the freeway , i tuned it the day i did the deletes to the wild 120hp tune and packed it away in my tool box 3,000 miles later absolutly error free, for the price you really cant go wrong man smarty is starting to get kind of a bad rap so it would suck to buy the smarty have an issue then not be able to sell it to get your H&S

Customer support is high on my list. That pretty much eliminates the smarty product with the recent lack of support over the past 6 months or so.

Also, I would look into getting the MINI max instead of the xrt pro. Gauges are expensive, but you get them in that package for just a cpl hundred more. Also, later on when you find the need for a custom tune, its only available on the mini max.

Where is the best place to purchase the Mini Max? I'm looking for good price, quick shipping, good support, etc. Someone that really cares...

You can PM me if you prefer.

Thanks in advance.

If smarty gets these issues fixed with the new HO engines i will support them but til then go H&S... If I'm left in the dirt here with this $650 tuner I'm not going to be happy...
