My 2017 2.7 crew cab 4x2 has 3.15 gears.
Hauls ***** with my 5 star tune, shifting is excellent also

Uh.... did you read my post? It was about the hypothetical situation being presented. I already know you don't give the tuner your VIN.

Read it, but didn't realize that's what you were referring to. Disregard.

I just updated my SCT BDX with the SCT Device Updater, as I need to load a new revision from my tuner, and my BDX didn't self destruct. I loaded the tune onto the device like always, and got no other indications any major changes had occurred. When I get off work tonight I'm flashing the truck and I'll report back if Captain Planet descends from the heavens to admonish me for my ecological sins.

Agreed. F****g A****s. Useless, ignorant, stupid, I can think of nothing worse for some dumbass redneck minded punk to do. Especially when used to fumigate passer bys, other cars, bikers, runners, etc. Me and a running buddy literally caught up with one of these a****s at a stoplight after being blasted by his coal rolling setup, and the little b***h rolled up his windows and was crapping his pants. If we could have gotten the door open he would have been beat in the middle the the street.
