They aren't too bad to install. I have only installed one and I did't have any issues. It plugs into the pcm right behind the kick panel where your parking brake mounts. I put the knob under the steering column right behind the steering wheel, easy to get to if you every wanted to take it out and also kind of hidden.

pop the kick panel off it is held on by three plastic interior clips/pins then unbolt the e brake assembly 3 bolts and lay it off to the side. behind it you will see the pcm remove the black plastic piece and scuff up the circuit and install the chip, be careful not to remove too much from the circuit board. run through all the settings make sure they work properly, if they don't you may need to clean the circuit board better

Which chip did you get. It should come with some sort of directions, which should give you all the information you need. I put my chip right beside my ESOF 4x4 switch.

So my chip Is all in working and I actually used my tow tune today but I'm kinda paranoid does anyone use the tony wildman tunes? I have extreme as my 6th position but I'm kinda scared if I slap it into extreme and go race I'll burn my clutch or something? Do y'all know if itll destroy my clutch? It's a 5speed with a stock clutch it had a new one put in like 2 months before I bought it so im kinda waiting for this one to be no more till I put in a south bend but dont Wana burn it out and beat up my engine too

don't know i had an upgraded clutch before I got my chip and I didn't get extreme burnt on my chip because it scared me. You can always try and mbe gentle so it. no 3000 rpm clutch dumps and it'll last longer
