Its just a driver truck, live in the mountains of NC. Just Wondering? Thank You God Bless!!
I have no experience w/them, but a new chip or reprogramming the engine and tranny computer could be an easy way to pick up some performance. Some units have a feature that will let you reset the speedo calibration for different gears and tire sizes, and readouts for rpm, temps, etc.
