I love it, I run the canned tunes...Great. Also I run a Looney tune from Vivan, even better! I really like the livewire for it's monitoring capabilities, the only issue I have run across is that the engine oil temperature still isn't right yet. SCT is working on the issue but haven't said anything about a for sure release date.

OMG just installed my Livewire. I found a used one on Ebay the guy a had it on a 06 and mine is a 06 so I bought it. I has three custom tunes from DP so I loaded the street tune and took it for a drive. The take off doesn't feel much different than stock a little quicker on take off and quicker shifts. But when you stand on it all Hell breaks loose it's pretty impressive. I can't wait to try some other tunes from Eric and Vivan.

It is taking three weeks to plug a cable into the OBDII port and click the scroll wheel four times? They are taking you for a ride, I had mine on the truck in 20mins. and fully tuned to monitor everything I wanted with livelink in about a hour and half. I personally love my Looney tune.

Ya that doesn't seem wright. I red the instructions and when out pluged it in to the OBDII port and saved stock file and load the tune. By the way rebelranger where did you mount your's it's a little bigger than I thought it was going to be. I have the windshield mount but don't want it taking up that much space on the windshield. I was thinking of putting it in the fold down pocket under the brake controller butt I'm going to have to cut the pocket to make it fit.

Barrelslime, good I was worried for you.

TNAcustom, I'm not going to lie I run mine above the rearview mirror with the window pod thing. Not the greatest, and yes it is slightly bigger then I wanted too. I'm trying to figure out a better place for it too, without losing my drawer under the upfitter switches. There is someone on here who has installed it just like you said, it is pretty clean install too. Let me know what you determine on the location. Have you had any luck with livelink and getting all the PIDs you want?
