I have a 2010 ram 2500 heavy duty with a hemi. I'm planning a trip to South Dakota and Wyoming and I'll be pulling a travel trailer. With all cargo and trailer it'll be about 8500 lbs. My question is would a Edge programmer help. I don't want to buy just a toy. If it helps pulling in the hills and would help with prolonging the drive train I can see the money we'll spent.
If anyone could help with this topic I would appreciate it.
Thanks.

IMHO if you are towing then reliability under load should be prioritized over max output so I would not use a tuner

Bully Dog has a nice programmer, I have had two Bully Dog programmers in the past one for my 5.9 Cummins that turned that engine into a monster and even had a program that they out right warned you if you used it with a stock transmission you would be buying a new transmission it put out so much power.

I also had one for my 2008 Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi and it was a nice programmer.

I see the current Bully Dog programmers are really full featured now, here is a link:

Plenty of others may disagree FWIW. Just my opinion:smileup:
