Well got payed this week so i decided to buy some mods for the truck. First was i found out that the company that made my body lift finally came out with a rear bumper bracket to lift it up 3'' so i had to order that cause im so tired of looking at my bumper hangin down lol

Second was i ordered new N-Fab side steps cause i dont like how mine hang down(also cause of the damn body lift lol) Then i ordered the S&B cold air intake that everybody on this site speaks so highly of :smileup:

Fourth and last item was a superchips 3865 tuner. Found it used online for $110 so decided to give it a try since i hear good things and since a new one was way out of my price range.

Now for the question... for those of you that run with the superchips programmer, which tune do you run/ which works best for all around performance? any tips on what settings to use would be greatly appreciated
like what shift points and rev limiter u use please
thanks guys!!

il post pics once i get the items! :smileup:

Wish I could help you, but I didn't have a Superchips. What's it saying?

You think the intake will fit with the body lift?

says "unable to adjust tire height. No ABS Module present on vehicle." called superchips and they said it means i have something wrong with my module... went to dodge dealership and they said not a thing is wrong with it if my abs light is not on which it isnt... so now i dont know what to do... correcting my speedometer was one of the main reasons i bought the thing

and just remembered i didnt answer your other question lol i think it will work with the body lift... me and some friends heated up the tube and i bent it back a bit to make up for the angle difference and it went on the truck fine. now i just gotta take some measurements and make sure it didnt make it to long cause the tube goes into the air box a good ways. il keep ya updated on it and take some pics

Looks way better! Can't really tell it's a body lift unless you know where to look.

For brake pads I have always used Raybestos and rotors I just use whatever my local supplier has in stock. Maybe someone else can chime in on the rotors part. looking good. Love the steps!
