HPTuners is reputable. I might wait for GDE though.

Remember, the HP tuner is just that, a tuning device to get a tune uploaded into the pcm. You'd still need a tune from gde for example to upload into your pcm via the hp.

That's correct, I thought someone mentioned in the thread there was a manufacturer that had a tune available as well though with the release. I believe PPEI was getting ready to release something soon on that platform.

... so far I'm pretty happy with the mileage so far..... 29-30 highway driving..... maybe at 100,000 miles I might want a new tune, but right now, I'm thinking the engineers did a good job.... at 70 mph this motor is well tuned now... will a different tune increase mileage?

A tune could increase mileage... or it could decrease it. Depends on the tune and how conservative/aggressive the factory tune is.

This is just the tool to create and modify tunes, and likely doesn't actually include any tune files at all. It can adapt to highly modified engines that operate outside the scope of the OEM tune, or be used on a completely stock engine (and anything in between).

As much as I'd like to get in on this and start tinkering, I really have no need. I will happily sit back and watch how this goes for others. This Jeep just runs so well, it isn't worth the risk for me....at this point in time. I think I'll give it at least a year, or wait for one of the well respected players to release their tuning.

Now when tuning becomes available for my 2020 6.7L F350 (without costing several thousand dollars and requiring me to send in my ECM) I am diving in head first! While the Ford does run good, I think it would benefit much from a clean tune.
I am with "Compression-Ignition", I have been driving my JLU-Diesel since Aug with trailer on and off road, there is nothing performance wise that needs changed in my eyes.

It's a stock Sahara.... I bought it as a daily driver/pavement prince.....still use the YJ for woods running, but that leaf spring front axle beats me up on longer road trips.....
