Need suggestions on Aftermarket FICM

So I have a 2006 F-250 that has a bad FICM. I’m trying to decide between Sinister and Bulletproof for choices to replace the failing OEM FICM. What do y’all recommend and why? Cost isn’t an issue, just wanting to make sure I get the best one as a replacement.
Thanks y’all!!!

Bulletproof every day of the week. No question.

Bulletproof quality is impeccable.

BPD is a good choice, however, FICMrepair.com (another org vendor) has a lifetime warranty FICM rebuild you might wanna check out. Not sure on pricing compared to BPD.

I ditto what these guys said. Don't bother with trying others. These two are tried and true.

FICMrepair.com service is great. Have not had any need to talk to BPD....which is good as well i guess.

Ed at ficmrepair will answer the phone literally all the time and help you through any and all unrelated problems that have nothing to do with anything you have ever bought from him. I have bought lots of stuff from him and sometime i dont know if its related when i call. So far it has not been and ive had no issues with anything he sold me.(Please dont call him just to be your neighborhood mechanic!!!! Buy something first!!!!)

And again, everyhting ive bought from BPD i have not had issues with...so i have no clue if they even have a customer service division lol.

Let's dive deeper on the BPD FICM. Is there any reason to buy the full unit over just the power supply other than aesthetics? An extra $325 seems like a lot assuming your logic board still works.

No need for the logic board unless yours is already fried, logic board failures are a rare bird

I went with FICMrepair.com on mine. I've had it for the last 6 years, and it has worked perfectly without a single problem. I Highly recommend them.
