Default Tuning my buddy's JK Wrangler

My buddy just purchased a Super Chips Flashpaq for his 2010 JK Jeep Wrangler Sport. I believe it has a 3.8 V6 (I think that was the only option that year) with a Mopar CAI. It has small lift/leveling kit with 275/55/17s (I think). Not sure on the gearing but I know its factory. I know my details are vague, just trying to go off of memory.

I'm going to help him with the tuning because he's never dealt with it before. I'm pretty new to it myself, I just started using a DS inTune on my 09 Ram. But I'm wondering what some good begining tunes would be for this thing. Its a daily driver/weekend warrior.

I'm going to do an 87 octane tune to start
Adjust Tire size
Should I adjust his throttle boost? How much?
Shift Points?
Rev Limits?
Anything Else?

does superchips have a throttle boost option? i have the SC 3865 for my hemi and never saw that option. I just went in and set it to the 91 tune and set everything else to superchips setting. changed my tire size. didn't mess with shift points/rev limiter..just selected the "superchips" option.

I guess I assumed it had throttle adjustment but now looking at their website, I don't see that option. So that one is out then.

I probably just set him up with the 87 octane tune and change his tire size.

Not sure if he'll want to mess with shift points or not. I just set mine today on my Ram per MGH's guidance. Definitely feel it on the pavement but we'll see what that does for offroading. And I'm guessing that's what my buddy is going to aim for, best offroad tune but still streetable.
