Yeap, very easy.

Remove Driver side Kick Panel.

Remove E-Brake Nuts, 3 of them (can't remember the size, I think 13mm)

Then the Computer is right back there. If there is a CHIP currently on it, you should just be able to PULL it off.

IF NOT, then we have to do it the HARD WAY

you can remove your kick plate, then parking brake assembly and reach it from there and just pull it off the computer. Or you can pull the computer out through the hood and do it from there. Just keep in mind your switch is connected to it.

Yeap, but to pull it thru the Hood, I would drop the fender wheel well and then pull it out.

It is kinda hard to pull it out with out doing that (I have before, PITA)

you will need a 10 mm socket for underneath the hood, the screws under the dash are 7mm and the screw to remove the panel where the motherboard is at is 7/32 there should be 6 of them... just make sure when you install the chip you get ALL the silicone off for it to work properly... takes about 15 minutes to install ..maximum

OP said he already has a TS Chip installed so no need to remove the computer completely or get anything off of it

OH YES

I went from the Highest tune from TS Performance back in 2001 to Tony's Tunes this year.

Truck is like NIGHT and DAY, completely different.

The only thing about removing the fender well is that they are old and brittle on these 10 year old + trucks. I didnt... just make that SOB(computer) come out... use 2 people.
