    It looks like I have a decision to make. My 5 year warranty is up on 06/02/2019. I am leaving the middle of June for a 3 week trip of about 5000 miles. I will be towing my travel trailer. Do I get the update and take the trip and have the extra warranty coverage or stay with GDE tune and have no warranty? I am leaning towards getting the update to have some warranty but any thoughts would be appreciated. I don't think it matters in this case but I did keep my stock ecm.

    Lee . put stock ECM back in , get AEM applied to your stock ECM , you get the benefits of the extended warranty ,
    then go back home , put GDE tuned ECM back in and keep on enjoying your trouble free truck.
    win - win situation because you kept the stock ECM.

    Thanks for the reply. I was a little confused about the waiting for GDE to get things figured out.

    It sounded like GDE is recommending waiting to put the tune back in until they do more research.

    GDE is recommending to wait until they sift through the factory tune with the new AEM if you will need them to flash your tuned ECU. If you have a spare no big deal, install the factory ECU and swap back after the AEM is applied.

    *Note this only applies to the engine tune not the trans tune.

    Thanks Mopar73340. I'm getting tired of saying it over and over.

    I just spoke with GDE, they stated that if you have a space ECM with their tune, install the original ECM like you would do for any time you take your truck to the dealer. Have the dealership flash the original ECM with the AEM then when you get home reinstall GDE ECM. They stated there should be no conflicts with any other updates to other modules. They did say to reinstall the factory transmission tune, if that is applicable.

    I have been waiting for the transmission tune to go on sale. I see it is now and am ready to buy as soon as GDE is ready post aem and u07 recalls. An update from GDE is greatly appreciated. Thanks
