Just curious if anyone knows if one will/does work for on/with the 2006 4.7L's?

I have one sittin in a box from my 6L GMC and also have a Predator U7135 I inheritted...

If either of these work it'd be great to know.... more intersted in reprogramming for 265-70r17's (off my 6.7L ram) once I have the lift, step bars, skidplates, and fender mods done on the 'mander...

Thanks in advance...

Ok... :scratchhead:

since noone knows I will simply ask -----

"Just what programmers are you folks running on the 4.7L's???"

need DTC reading and tire recalibration at the least... some spark advance and ponies won't hurt either


obviously bullydog and certain predators are (for lack of better term) useless....

i have a hypertech for 4.7
this is one for 3.7(below)

Spoke to Jet Chips and their programmer will work in our 3.7s.................with a wopping +12hp and +10lbs torque for stage 1..........+17 hp and +13lbs torque for stage 2. I don't see that as a good deal considering the price tag of $250-$300 (depending on where you shop). The cheapest price I found was $228, which makes it out to be $19 per HP for stage 1. Not worth the while in my opinion, plus Jet Chips has some bad reviews on-line.
SO, I ordered the Hypertech speedometer calibrator to correct my tire size issue and hopefully it will correct my "hunting" for gears while on the highway. I will post up in my garage when I recieve it and install it.

this is a link for one forsale in this forum

works with 4.7 or Hemi.

Programmer

I was looking at that one as they claim a bit better fuel economy but from what BD website says that programmer is only compatible on 2008 4.7 and up. I just got a 2007... Plus I was told it won't really even help much on MPG so yeah... Not sure why it wouldn't work on an 07 but will on an 08, but I am a newb when it comes to Commanders... If it was a Wrangler I'm sure it would, then again, those are a different breed.... The one I found was pretty cheap and may help for towing so I may still go for it, but then again according to BD not compatible??

Thoughts??
