    Welcome to TW!

    Stay away from any "Chips" that claim HP gains.

    the reason a chip won't work, is because our trucks have a locked ecu, meaning you can't tap into it and change the way the truck works.

    Welcome, man! The companies who sell those "performance chips" just have good marketing teams. They're no good though...

    Oh boy... Prepare for a lashing on here. They're scams. They don't do anything for your truck. Don't waste your money.
