Programming

Is it worth while to have my truck reprogrammed by FORD for $60 for tire size and shifting? I have went from a 235 to a 285-75-16.

You can get a programmer that can do the same as the dealership, plus give extra power to your truck and give you the cababillity to read trouble codes. I believe it is the Super Chips Tuner that does all of this. Cost is around 300-400 bucks. Or if you want pay the 60 bucks at the dealer your call.

But yes it is worth having your speedo adjusted for the bigger tire size. Being you went up more then 1 tire size.

i wouldn't worry about it if you don't put that many miles on in a years time but if you do alot of miles all it takes is one speeding ticket and you could have more then paid them $60 bucks..

Look on eBay for tuners. There are a lot of folks out there that sell the truck and put the tuners on eBay. I got my Diablo, which has been relegated to a code reader until I can get some exhaust, for $125 shipped.

Does the tire size difference throw shift points off much?

The dealership just told me that it's hard on the tranny? And that it makes it sluggish, but I told him it didn't feel sluggish. I'll probably have it done anyway?

The dealer tried to program the tire size today, and it wasn't able to do it? They said I would have to buy an aftermarket programmer to do it. I think I will leave it as is for now?
