Hi all, dont really post on here alot but lurke around almost everyday. I seen a few members who squeezed 37's on the stock 20" rims and loved it. $1900 later and I finally have "that truck". Honestly the compliments are amazing. It really seems like im driving a $200k Italian sports car, everywhere I go people love my truck! (not being ****y in any way just very proud). Any who, ive had the tires for about 2k miles now and still have not done any modificatons for the bigger tires.
I went on the major highway and watched the markers and the mileage of my tuck is only like 20 feet less then .1 off of the mile markers (if that makes any sense). So i figured that was pretty good, obviously not correct but good enough to hold me out where i could spend a few more hundred on a programer. This was about a month ago. Today went past one of those " speed limit 35- your speed ..." signs and it was almost 6 miles off of what the seedo read!
Heres the kicker= truck is the 5.4 triton(dont ban me!) I have found a sh*t-ton of info/programers/calibrators for the 6.4, and none for the 5.4. The popular ones that would work for the 5.4 (hypertech, superchips etc.) only go up to 35" tires. Theses arent something that can be returned so I dont want to take a chance and buy them to find out they wont work.
Im hoping someone on here possibly has a 5.4 with some info or knows a buddy that was in the same boat as me and has an answer.
Thanks in advanced for any info and again hope i dont get flammed for the gasser, because this is an AMAZING website even for the young guys like me who couldnt afford the $8k+ sticker price of the diesel engine on top of the purchase of there first brand new automobile. Al III
P.s also how much extra miles do you think i put on the truck if judging by the odometer i went approx 2500 miles with the new tires?
