Can you adjust what temps the fan kicks on at (like the Diablo tuners)?

I can honestly say it's night and day in how the truck drives. So much nicer now! The shift points are way better and it isn't searching for gears all the time, holds them way better up hills and all that stuff. I definitely recommend getting one for your truck. You won't regret it. And like Jeremiah said above, he will hook you up. I got mine less than 24 hours after ordering it from him.
Any improvement to gas mileage? My 2012 is getting 10mpg and I'm looking for something to improve that

I'm getting around 17 mpg (US) 80% highway 20% city driving and I live where there's a lot of hills/mountains. I have the Bully Dog regular tune installed right now and then also a Flowmaster cat back and an Airaid intake. On a flat highway I could probably get around 21 or 22 mpg.

Thats what I get at worst with winter gas and warming up the truck etc, 15mpg city with some highway. and I am stomping it all over the place. If I was being nice I could probably get about 18-19 winter gas and all. I just love how my truck pulls now. Can't keep my foot out of it lol

Unhappy

I know i get horrible gas millage. Although it is winter here in Canada. -15 Celsius at night. I already talked to my dealer about it and he is getting me to track how many km's per tank I'm getting. Said he can put the computer on it but I don't think its going to show anything as I'm not getting any crazy lights or anything.

Right now i'm getting about 250 miles to a tank of gas.

I see that the Bully Dog is ONLY available for the HEMI 2011 - 2012. The guy is asking for a his 4.7L engine. I am looking for the same thing except that mines is a 2009 4.7L V8 Also, I did see the DiabloSport T1000 Trinity Programmer has an one for a Hefty Price. Do you guys recommend it???

I am also looking for HEADERS, which my 2009 4.7L V8 needs desperately. Any news on this subject??? It lacks power going up hill and to passing change in lanes I have to floor it and gas mpg drops stupid-fast. I need a complete Headers and Exhaust System for my Ram like for yesterday... ANY HELP IS REALLY APPRECIATED!!!!

I'm in Winnipeg too. I'm getting about 18L-100kms with city driving, usually letting the car warm up for 3 or 4 minutes in the morning prior to driving. This is about 15.5mpg. The hwy has been dissapointing, getting about 18.8 mpg.

The Bully Dog for Hemi GT Plus works for the new 4.7's as well. The DS Trinity does not work for the new 4.7's (at least the 11's/12's. Not sure about the 09's)

18.8 MPG on the highway isn't that bad. Completely stock they list them at 19 (unless 2013 has changed from the 2012's). So you're pretty much dead on if you're stock. Do you have any other aftermarket parts on it that should be giving you more.
