    I was on the fence on getting this, now I feel stupid for not getting it sooner! Great having something so simple to use but yet so effective to meet your needs for your different driving situations. If you were on the fence like me, JUST BUY IT! 100% satisfaction guaranteed hah now time to get a DAP tune for me. Im on 35" nitto trail grappler this gave me my normal driving style back with how i like to use the pedal.

    OK, big fan of PC but here’s an important head’s up in case you experience the same problem.

    In short, I was 300 miles from home when my CEL came on, along with all of the VSC lights. 4WD slammed VERY hard going in and out of 4Hi (out in the woods in NorCal steelhead fishing). Thought I broke front differential, but no damage. Turned the engine on and off a few times and now it was in limp mode. After getting up off the river, I travelled about 25 miles to the nearest small town, where there was a repair shop. Closed. Turned the truck off, got a sandwich from the country store, sat on my tailgate and ate and prayed. Fortunately, my truck re-started in normal mode, but with the same nanny lights glaring at me. I did not have my code reader with me (mistake), but wasn’t too worried about VSC lights. Took my time and made the six-hour drive home without stopping or going back into limp mode.

    The following morning the same lights were lit on my gauges AND it was back in limp mode. I tried to shift into 4WD Hi and SLAM once again. My code reader showed P2121. My first move was to remove the PC, then I cleared the code. I have since been driving my truck for a month with no PC, which is a bummer, but more importantly, no problems.

    Contacted PC and since I bought my Pedal Commander (from ORW) eleven months ago, it was only under warranty for another 30 days. They had me send it in to get tested or replaced. BTW, they have been great to deal with.

    I got it back about 10 days later. They said they did “A few software upgrades that were specifically for my year/model/engine.” When I bought it, there was no model spec’d for a 2005 Tundra 4.7, but the people at ORW called PC, who said that a PC 38 model would work. Funny how it worked flawlessly for 11 months but then it needs a software tweak.

    I have not reinstalled it yet, but I expect all to be fine. I will keep you posted if more issues arise. Hope this is helpful.

    Just installed mine today. Wow, this completely changes throttle response. I’ve been using City +2 (seems to be the most popular setting), and still, you BARELY touch it, and it’s off to the races. I tried ECO mode, and I can see how that would indeed work for improved MPG; the throttle response is VERY slow. I know it’s completely psychological, but it seems like I put a SC on top of the 5.7!!
    :rofl:

    I forgot to mention. It worked great for 2 weeks. Had it on City +1. Then it got wonky and started surging. Thought about calling PC. But a throttle controller isn't really something I want to take chances with. Will wait for a proper tune.

    Had mine over a year now. Been driving on City +1 with no issues. No surging and instability with the throttle. Smooth the whole way. Worth every penny!

    So I went a solid week believe it or not in ECO mode MINUS 4. I did get about 3.2 better MPG’s, which one would expect. The gas pedal feels like a sponge. Better plan well when pulling into traffic! So if things financially get tougher, I know I can save some money. For now, I’m going back to CITY +2 since gas is so cheap.

    Using ECO -4 in a Tundra is like an Irish Wolfhound trying to bump uglies with a squirrel...the shit just ain’t natural.

    Well I was disappointed in the lack of snap from the 5.7 when I bought my 2019 new, then I installed this. Well I would definitely never go back to not having one!

    YouTube or PC videos may be your friend. There is a catch pin on the plug/harness, if not seeing its probably on the opposite side. Good Lighting and getting down in there close to it may help.

    Good Luck!

    TRD sway bars was going go be my first real mod....but now I'm thinking Pedal Commander.

    I can sell it to my wife as it has "eco mode" which her Rav4 has....not that I'll use it. :hattip:

    Pedal Commander sounds much more fun that sway bars

    It's up top - squeeze both sides on top of plug and you should feel one side give in. Pull up and there ya go

    As much as I love my PC, if you do more street traveling (with curves) vs. offroading, I’d go with the rear sway bar first. That way, when you get the PC, and your pedal is a helluva lot more sensitive, you won’t get as assy in a curve if you hit the pedal too hard, with that sway bar in play...

    Just my 2 cents...:hattip:

    You definitely need to experiment in sport mode...Start at sport +2 and work your way down if its too aggressive for your taste. My truck loves it right there, so there it stays. :bowdown:

    So as an aside. I was doing some audio work today and I disconnected the negative terminal of the battery. In the past and before PC the truck would always startup and die immediately after reconnecting the battery - something about the throttle plate position needing to reset. With PC installed it started, bogged for a second, then revved but continued to run.

    Installed mine the day before yesterday... big difference!!! Right now I’m just running with it set to City +0 and when it rained yesterday, I just turned off all together (the Bluetooth control is nice to have).
    So, not only does adjust the throttle, but it also seems to disable the traction control as well... I did not expect that and don’t recall Reading it anywhere. I think that helps a lot in making it more fun to drive now :yes:

    Not sure how it could disable the traction control.
