I have an 08 with the 10" fab and 41s and I love the sct livewire. I was having a weird limp pedal issue and their engineering team got it fixed and built me a custom tune in one day, great guys. Some really like the spartan tuners as well, but I'm assuming your truck will be like mine and you don't pull much so frankly when it comes to street driving empty I'm sure they're all so close it doesn't matter...

i will be pulling a 2 place sled trailer and occasionally a 4 place inclosed. but dont need the chip to pull the **** out of things. from what everyone is saying i think i will be going with the SCT.

what model is it, so i can read more about it?

please post pics of your truck, i want to see what the size up from mine would look like if i decide to go bigger!

Where are you located in Idaho? I am down in Pocatello, and I run the Spartan tuner if you're interested in checking out their tuning system.

Love my Spartan. Does everthing I need and then some. I did a lot of research before I invested in a programmer and have no regrets.
