They always respond promptly. They are one of our site sponsors as a matter of fact. I wouldn't trust my truck to anyone else.
My experience was the opposite. I received no guidance via email. When I'd later sought help in these forums about my truck bucking wildly under light throttle in gears 1 through 3 with DP's economy tuning, a company rep created a straw-man fallacy by posting that I lacked the necessary high-performance mods.

I’ve heard that story quite a few times. It’s always the trucks fault.

In some cases the truck does have issues. Especially low icp or trans issues

But if one particular person at DP handles the email good luck.
Jody or Justin offer great service. It’s the extra member of the team who doesn’t know how to tune or know these trucks that muddies the water.

I think that particular person has been told to stay out of things now....Because customer service has improved.

2000 7.3 Excursion 153,000 original miles stock tires turbo ect. I’ve had a Superchips program in tow haul for 12 yrs never towed anything over 3,000. Until this last weekend experienced turbo surge. Hauling a newer 8,400lb travel trailer from Montana to NW Washington. On arrival home in my drive way Trans fluid ran from my bell housing as I was backing it in to place. Now I’m looking to build this truck to make cross country trips once or twice a year with this travel trailer with decent fuel economy and good towing capability. Any good ideas. Hydra? Turbo? Trans?

Agree with above post!! Backing is hard on the auto tranny (heat). 4x4 low when backing. I would also add the 6.0 trans cooler and trans temp gauge, simple bolt in project.

I like my Hydra and I like the price too. Call any one of many tuners for it and if they arent willing to have a conversation with you about your needs then just call another. You are never stuck with one.
