could not agree more!!!

I had the paperwork almost done on a 2011 F150 with the ecoboost motor for a few grand less than my Jeep. Thought the SUV would be better to live with daily but am quickly losing that feeling. Should have bought the truck.

my brother has a tuner and exhaust (a $500 cat back exhaust) for his 2011 Ford truck and keeps wondering why I don't have a tuner yet.

Anyone want to buy a really nice 2011 WK2 Overland???
It's very frustrating to say the least. I don't think anything is going to change unless someone brakes the code which i think is less and less likely as time passes. If Chrysler is unwilling to offer tuning options for the SRT8 crowed then I feel we have no hope.

Ya, there are certain things I love about me Jeep but I do miss the utility of my pickup. I didn't get another f150 cause I figured i'd end up lifting it and running 37's like my last one. Who knew I could have done that and got the same mpg i'm seeing with my Hemi. Argg between this thread and another one I've been following it's really got me worked up and thinking up dumping this thing.

Exact response I got last week. They must be asked all the time. I already own a Diablo Sport Trinity so all I need is the tune!

Three Chrysler products, three trim levels, all three with manufacture tags, with a Roush racing chase truck. The drivers were very tight lipped and the vehicles were dirty to say the least. This was taken at the gas station
At I76 and Bromley lane. They pulled in from the west, looked like they were coming back from the mountains.

Hmmm. Were they testing something??



Looks like they are all V-8's too. Promising...

Oh well, still promising!

Re: Any new Updates heard for a WK2 Programmer - BullyDog, HyperTech, SuperChip

I've decided to just run in tow/mode all the time as of earlier this week. It pretty much addresses all the issues i have; poor shifting and throttle response. I'll let you guys know how the mpg works out but i don't expect much of a change as my tires are 1.5"s larger then stock.

Heck they even refuse to sell an owner a service manual. Dealers and online help are not worth much when out in the boonies.
