Diablo Sport Predator is what most folks on here would recommend since you have a hemi. They should be chiming in shortly. The gains are pretty sweet.

Thanks I was also looking at the Trinity also by Diablo Sports but it seems a little too advanced for me seeing as I am just now starting to upgrade my truck.

I run a predator on my '07 HEMI, and the gains are great. Also, the install is VERY straight forward if you are just installing one of their 3 canned tunes, it's a basic plug and play. The trinity has all the same features as the predator plus the real-time display and a few more add-ons. If you think it's a bit much, then the predator is the way to go.

I will have to agree with everyone else and say the Diablosport Predator. I have it in my 07 and I absolutly love it. I think it is the best programmer out there for the Ram. You will definitley be happy going with the Predator.

The Trinity is the same thing as the Predator just more expensive. It will give you some cool things but no addition to performance

Default Tuners

I just bought a Diablo predator and it will probably arrive before my truck. LOL! Glad to hear that it is the programmer of choice for members.
Does it work as a stand-alone or do other performance mods have to be added right away?
Does one have to retune with each added performance upgrade or once installed does the tuner make allowances for these other additions?
