    Would that be afternoon east coast time or west coast time? I'm like a 5 year old waiting for Santa Clause here.

    :drool: This right here may make me buy this tune. With my armor, tent,bumpers and 32" tires my MPG @75 suffers. If you are seeing 17 with 35s I would expect even better with my 32s. I currently get about 15 to 16 at 75.

    i know you're into your truck. you have a manual. how you have been able to remain satisfied with the gawd-awful factory ECU tune is totally beyond me. haven't you struggled with the throttle and power delivery while managing MT driving dynamics?

    get the tune man!

    I can attest. Running full armor, 35's and heavy ass rims. The truck feels as "quick" as stock(with all the add ons)I can't imagine after 4.88's..

    4.88's coming in the next couple months. I can't even imagine...

    It took some getting used to for sure. It still seems awkward at times but It is manageable. I'll break down eventually and buy it. Power is not the problem for me it's the wonky 2stroke power band feeling in the mapping that makes me crazy.

    @OVTune

    Ive been waiting patiently to ask you this ??? because I didnt want to side track you and put a work load on you. Now that the ECU file has come to its end, when will you get to the S+mode lock? U mentioned awhile back that the TCU file is reserved for later tune on S+mode lock..

    Please remember that this is one of the reason why I bought the tune. I'm sure some early adopter feel the same.

    that was the case with me as well. i couldn't get used to it at all and got the Pedal Commander as a stopgap or i was selling the truck. but this is really just what a driver wants... normal predictable driveability. the mid-range torque bump will also change your thoughts on not caring about more power. it changes everything.

    I plan on doing a review in a few days, as I was just able to install 1.02c (a) this morning. As someone who has had 1.02b on with 4.88 gears, I can tell you that it’s an awesome combo performance wise.

    100 or so, just seems to be getting worse for me. Overly twitchy, first gear is jolty, harsh changes to other gears up and down. It stays in 4th/5th/6th nicely though and drives through it which is nice.

    I feel like there need to be a new shift map, stock 1st gear, tweaked 2-6. To me, everything except 1st gear is perfect with 1.02C (A). I don't think I want 1.02C (C), since 5-6 is stock, which shifts way too soon. The first gear up shift and down shift seems too aggressive for my driving style.
