I have a couple of friends using the edge. They have been using edge tuners for a while with no problems. But,,, they aren't trying to race every Joe at every stop light. I agree with the Pyro being a must, really on any tune a Pyro gauge should be installed. My tranny is going to replaced soon, so not worried about the edge. I really think the problem with this tuner, and many tuners, are the fact that you can drive the thing a lot harder and faster, but should you really drive the thing harder and faster? The power band is instantaneous with the programer, where stock it takes more to get the truck going. Shifts are hard in stock mode, with more torque converter lock up shimmy on mine. With the edge it's smoother, and the trannies shifts are more predictable. No shift dump after second gear. The truck is easier to drive, and i'm working the tranny a lot less. The truck is fun to drive now, in my reasonable 25 ft long 6000+ pound kind of way. Have you ever looked at where your front bumper sits on most car's side doors,,, even without a lift? Yes, it's a deadly machine, and should be driven with responsibility.
These aren't race cars, and in my neck of the woods every Dodge boy thinks he's at Daytona. If you can't resist a stop light dodge boy drag race, you shouldn't be driving over 6000lbs. of truck.
Ol blue, you probably don't want to hear this, but how much experience do you have with the edge tuner? Are you basing your judgement on fact, or what you've heard on the internet?
