    I was in for warranty work and noticed my service department selling pedal commander. Granted they want your first born for it. I can find it 25% cheaper on amazon. I also noticed lots of people getting rid of theirs in my area for all sorts of different vehicles on Facebook marketplace. Figured they may just be switching vehicles, but it got me wondering if the price is worth it, or if anyone's had issues?

    I don't recall reading about any issues with the PC. For me it is not worth the price, but that's just me.

    Not really worth the price honestly. It did help with mpg when set in eco for me, but for around town, it drops it cause I'm using city or sport mode. I might sell mine eventually but it is fun though lol. Knowing what I know now, I wouldn't buy another one for sure.

    Thats because you're using it wrong. You don't buy a PC for improved mileage, you buy it for improved :D

    I've had mine for well over a year, no issues whatsoever. I'm not even sure I would like driving without it, I'm too used to having it now. Mine is the version without bluetooth

    I got a P0734 and P0735 code after my transmission rebuild, but I don't know if that was necessarily because of the PC. I think the fact that I have a higher stall combined with the PC may have helped burn the OD clutches. Setting it on sport made the converter slip more often, but I had that in with my tune and so I'm thinking that was a combination of everything not working well together. I have not heard of any issues in vehicles with a stock converter. I may have one I'm looking to part with.

    I've had one for a couple of years and never had any problems. Well worth the money IMHO just in driving pleasure. Remember if you buy one from a NON dealer you won't get a warranty, also just for piece of mind, you might buy from a vendor that has had experience with them so they can answer any questions you might have, instead of just a "parts pusher".

    Thanks, if I buy one it will be from got exhaust. He’s still less expensive than amazon too with promo code. I’m undecided at the moment. I’m not sure how much I’ll actually use it.

    We have sold tons of these for RAMs and tons of them for many other vehicles as well. Problems are very rare. we have had a few have some problems but its literally a few among the hundreds I have personally sold. the worst we have seen so far is a CEL and limp mode. Pull the PC and truck goes back to normal other than having to clear the code. The warranty PC offers is great and they are quick to handle it and get a new one on the way. Again this is a rare occurrence. I have one in my personal truck for almost 2 years now I think and not a single issue. I love the great drive ability it provides.

    use promo code PC5
