If after you load the tune and go to drive off, you suddenly realize that all is not well with your GC (mine had no acceleration and wouldn't shift correctly), don't panic, you didn't kill it! Just disconnect the battery for a few mintues, then re-connect and you should be good to go.
Thanks and touche, good point!

I would also like an update on your gas mileage. I will be the first to admit I have a heavy foot, so I average around 14mpg around town and have about a 100-mile round trip to work every day, so obviously I don't want my MPGs to go down even more. However, I am not happy with the way this thing shifts and launches from the factory.

Ok I say the predator does an amazing job alone on MPGs (depends on the weight of your foot lol), throttle response and so much more! BUT if you want true performance, best MPGs and more, get the CMR tune offered by Johan.

My AVG MPGs are anywhere from 11 - 18 (high tops) city, and 20 to 22 even freeway. Of course the highest MPGs are associated w "light footed" driving. I too have a heavy foot and w all my mods it's hard to drive like a grandma!

Just my 2 cents and I feel the predator + CMR = happy fun Jeep times!

PS I change my fluids religiously and I keep her super well maintained...

It's not bad, overall improvement than stock. But with the help of a CMR, it's that much better!

Thanks maing!!

What are you trying to do with the tune?! What Octane gas do you use regularly... All this things have an impact on your tune. Figure out what you wanna do with it, and that will help steer you in the direction you want.

I dont have anything above 91 oct here in CA so I stay with that. I also have MDS off cuz my Jeep seems to prefer it! I drive a lot and I drive fast. I off road A LOT and the tuner helps with all of it!! I love it and it's one of the best mods you can do.... IMO!

Ok here's my input:

Def get the predator cuz you have the 93 oct tune option! Get a CMR too and it'll be that much better! You'll get way better shifts, and a ton of more power (CMR opens up the sleeping monster!)

MDS only comes on the 5.7L Hemi. It stands for Multiple Displacement System Check out this link http://www.jeep.com/mds/

Tires are an open book of info and opinions... I am currently running 255/70/17 Firestone Destination A/Ts and I LOVE THEM!!! They're an amazing set of tires for everything!! Literally everything, minus thick heavy mud of course! I think the next time around I am going to a 265/70/17 Mud terrain of some brand. Possible BFGoodrich Muds. They are WAY pricey but worth it. The Firestones only ran me $550 out the door! (local friends shop)

Hopefully this helps you out a lil more!

He works off donations. Anywhere from $100 to $500 and money has nothing to do w the quality of the tune, they're all the same
