    My only rebuttal is the tune gives you a this or that option when the pedal commander has 4 modes with 8 settings ea. Giving you 32 different options......
    will you notice the difference between all 32? probably not but Eco -4 is a helluva difference from Sport+ +4.

    I don’t think it’s tune vs pc. They do different things even though they have some overlap.

    they each have a place depending on your needs.

    No. It isn't.
    Pedal sensitivity or throttle response was the original topic.

    I thought the original topic was bad financial decisions! Something we are all familiar with.

    You should probably feel sorry for him.

    You have to remember ,when that vehicle came out it was the next best thing since sliced bread.

    @Pixeltim, you remember when sliced bread came out? :D
    Happy Friday:thumbsup:

    Interestingly enough, yes!
    I found out right before my grandmother died that she actually rode the stagecoach to high school!

    My pressman, long since retired, would tell me about his uncle taking horse and buggy to town. (Augusta, WI)
    Then how his aunt would see the horse and buggy coming down the road without his uncle....
    Here he would stop at the tavern, get drunk and the horse would bring him home while he slept....

    It's funny how some people have sensitive butt dynos and others literally can't tell the difference between a 4 cylinder 25 year old Corolla and a brand new Power Wagon

    Exactly. The tune is for refining the truck, making the transmission shift correctly, and getting the most power and mpg out of the stock config.

    PC is for the trash can. :D :crapstorm:

    Looking forward to hearing a review, if he has any opinions. I am pretty interested in the Mickeys. The cost is a bit annoying but i dont really hammer enough miles on the truck per year where I think I’m that worried. I just like the 11.5 vs 12.5 width of the AT4Ws.

    I'm happy as hell with my AT4w's. I bought 255/85s. They have less rolling resistance, are very good on wet roads, they're quiet and they performed great last weekend in mud, rocks, gravel, whatever I got into.

    edit: I just saw that auto-incorrect got me!:annoyed:

    Good info. I am not super impressed with my AT3Ws to be honest. The wet terrain handling is pretty meh. Not sure if that’s due to the size or what but they’re only okay I feel like.

    If anyone hasn't tried their hand at removing 29 year old adhesive...let's just say it builds character.

    But, making progress!
