Default 45RFE 5th gear?

I've got a 45RFE trans, which I'm sure is a 4 speed (1, 2, 2p, 3, and 4). But my Superchips 3865 Flashpaq gives me options for shift points for those gears, as well as from 4 up to 5, and back down. Does this actually do anything? I'm very confused.

You have a 5 speed 545rfe. Only older Jeeps came with the 4 speed version, which is just a programming change.

Are you sure? The transmission label says 451, and under that is the RFE. And my Ram is 9 years old.

The 451 is a casting number, not your trans number. I have an 03 and I have it, so TRUST me you have a 545RFE. The last Ram to have just a 45RFE was 2002 4.7.
