What job# truck do you have? I have been running it on my job 3 without the spartan tcm and it is perfectly fine, and without the tcm on a job 1 it will just shorten your transmission lifespan more than likely.

Anything heavy I would use the 210 just because it's nice with all of the safety built in. I wouldn't tow anything with the 310 myself, but I know some people do pull some light stuff with it. If you never tow anything super heavy the 275 is a great all around tune because you won't have to reload every time you hook up to a trailer, I never unloaded my 275 before I got the 310, and towed about 10k with it as well. For unloaded highway mileage my 275 and 310 get about the same.

How do i find out what job# my truck is?
Can i order the 210, 275, and 310 for my 3 tunes that it comes with?
No, You can however get the 275 and 310 tunes together for $400. The 210 tune can be one of your 3 tunes. Anything 210 and under can be one of your 3 tunes :thumb:

What is the build date of your truck?

05/07 is my built date.
That would be a Job 1 I believe, so I would not reccommend the 310 tune. I tested it on my truck from May until the end of August with the Job 1 TCM, and it is a no go man. I personally do not think that a stock 5R110w with a Job 1 TCM can handle the 310 tune for too long with daily driving. If you load it up for the dyno or the race track only, then go for it. The 275 is about the limit on a daily driving truck with a Job 1 TCM.

I ordered my Spartan 310 tune today. Can't wait! $100 is a great deal. I did not order the TCM because I just can't spend that money right now. Just for everyones info, you probably already know this. However, you need to call up to get the tune. It is available, they just haven't put it on their site yet. I called up and spoke with Angela I think it was.
