You seem like the type who always wants something for free. $3000 falls in your lap and complain about having to spend $50 to get the tune you want.

Thanks for the kind posts BH and smoky. Seems that kazimodo believes I'm good to go as-is as I still have my stock ECM.
My point was the if their tune needs to be updated to work with the truck, then that's on them. Of course if I over-write it, then I expect to pay $50. That was never in question. I'm sorry if you mis-read or I communicated poorly.

Patriot , see post # 8 in here : https://www.ram1500diesel.com/forum/...ll-notice.html
don't take my word for it , GDE in person in that post
the new version of the Hot Tune , that will be built from the newest AEM as a starter template ,will work ,
the older version you are running is compatible with other stuff your dealer will flash on the truck during the AEM ,
my version is March 2018 , if you are not sure about the version you have , I would send a little question to GDE
asking them if your version , according to the date you got it , is good to go , I'm sure reassurance from GDE
would erase all worries .
If you want to get the update and get the $$$ then if you don't have a spare ecu your going to have to pay the update if you want your tune back. From my understanding the update isn't mandatory.
My beef wasn't with GDE charging to re-update an ECM that had been overwritten - it was with the post that made me believe that GDE's tune wouldn't work with post-AEM trucks. If they're required to update their tune for our trucks to keep working, that shouldn't be on me. But it sounds like it doesn't, and I should be fine.
