My only disappointment is that above 55mph in 4th the trans won't unlock the torque converter for small inclines and I find myself down shifting to hold my speed. When the truck is under 55mph it unlocks the torque converter and gives a nicer transition between gears. Maybe someone out there has reprogrammed the trans?
Also, my driver door rattles and shakes (bangs against the door jam) when hitting bumbs in the road. Not sure why?
Both the Superchips Flashpaq and the Bully Dog Triple Dog GT have Towing tunes that make a nice difference.
