    This thing is pretty awesome. My brother did a DIY of something identical on his 2000 Super Duty, mirrored the AM/FM antenna on the other side, looks great!
    How are they holding up for people so far?

    I would assume this is a 3/8-24 thread antenna connector. Maybe instead of something that covers the nut, try a matching thread nylon black plug that can be threaded into it. I found some of those and could even add an O-ring if really necessary.

    Well I have changed the fluids in my transmission, transfer case, and front and rear differentials. The transmission was SLOW and especially messy with the old CHEAP plastic parts store pump. I have now ordered the Cool Tech transfer pump and am anxiously awaiting its arrival.

    Hope you like it! We came up with the idea when we were servicing a lot of Ford GT40's. Ford wants the transaxle fluid changed at the first year mark. The GT hold 4 quarts of fluid (at a cost of $38/quart), and one time I was standing there counting the number of up and down strokes on those hand pumps. It was about 120 strokes/quart. There HAS to be a better way. Off to Home Depot and gathering of some parts and "ta da" the Lube Mover was born. LOL Now we keep a container around that has this transaxle fluid in it and putting it into the car is (comparatively) a piece of cake!!

    Have a buddy with a small shop two lifts. He as was I very impressed with the lube mover. He said he is going to get one for his shop. Quick & clean what a change from the cheap flimsy auto parts store units.

    Hi Ron! Congrats on your ED purchase! I've had mine since 2014 - one of the very best vehicles I've ever owned!

    The GDE "tune" is really an ECU swap. You have two choices. 1) Buy the tune (ECU) with a deposit for returning your ECU. When the new ECU arrives (with your tune already installed), simply swap ECU's and return your OEM ECU to them and they will refund your deposit. 2) alternatively, you can purchase an ECU (on Ebay, for example) and ship them this ECU for programming. Then when you receive the ECU back from them you will have both the programmed ECU and your OEM and you can swap the OEM back in if ever needed.

    Thanks! I love it so far and am sure will love it even more after the GDE tune. I appreciate the info you provided, however, I asked if you perform the installs simply because I'm just not sure I trust myself doing the swap myself with pulling the airbox out and the ECM itself.

    The pcm swap is very easy it can be done with the air box installed. It's literally four M6 bolts and two connectors, all you need is a 1/4 inch ratchet with a 10mm shallow socket. It is a little easier if you unplug the maf sensor and move the top of the air box over some.
