too chip right now or not to chip is the question

ok, so doing the body work now as you guys can see. That will be finished shortly! And also most of you know that my transmission is on its way out the door!

I want a chip for towing puposes only really. However i am faced with the dilema of considering a 5 speed swap in the fall! I want a chip ASAP for the summer because i tow a 8,000lb trailer regularly. Chip now and reburn for the 5 speed later? Or wait to doit it all at once?

chip now and switch later... if you go with a TW chip it has free lifetime reburns so you can just send it in later and have it burnt for the 5speed..... PM me if you need any details

Free reburn? How much are we talking for a basic chip?
