i was looking into those but i still need something that will reprogram my speedo sensor for the 35inch tire i have on the truck now they are screwing up my fuel economy and shift points because it has yet to be recalibrated. i have been told that the low speed shifts are controlled by the speed sensor correct?

your not going to find a tuner that will be able to reprogram your truck to 35" tires.... your going to need a piggy back system like the superchips tru speed....

my recommendation is go with a custom tuned chip like the TW chip and the tru speed....
