"only mod is 35 inch tires"....."ive tried everything else" :S

For the most part dealer will only give the most current Ford flash. Think I've read of only one guy that got his local dealer to roll back his junk.

If you want some proven FICM tuning check out Power Hungry Performance. Check this thread out in the Georgia section. Has a number of before/after dyno test results with graphs. For me, between Spartan tunes and FICM tuning I'm getting around 5mpg more. I do got an '03 though.
