k, how bout this one, the 1st dealer the mech says that if the chip messed up the pcm, it will not run, truck runs, who is messing with me, they say to bring it back to them they will do it right, am i to trust them, this is a 5 hour trip 1 way, so will have to take it down this weekend, then go back the next weekend to get it back, so either 20 hours on the road x2 cause of chase car or swa for 137 plus fees 1 way each time for 2 times, momma ain't happy at all.

well guess kinda good news, they say if running go ahead and drive it down, just burn a day of vacation friday, get it there 1st thing, they think they can get it corrected in 1 day then send me on my way, so no extra trips or air fare, just bout $150-170 in diesel, if they do fix, will be worth being on the road at 3am.
