Not sure but have you checked Jet performance ? Not sure if the Vforce will do it or not

I ran the Jet chip stage 1 for a bit until my tranny & transfer case both went at the same time. I removed the chip and never installed it again. I think it puts too much strain on the tranny cause the shifts are very fast and it blew out the tranny gasket on the pan. I lost a lot of oil and it was too late. I did notice a performance difference but wasn't worth all the damage.

I was waiting for someone to say that. I didn't want to make the claim without actual knowledge. With any chrsler tranny it will fail if u go below.5 volts it will fail we found this out in truck world with jet chips

Jet doesn't "test" their products on every product they have it listed for

Jet stage 1's actually cause a degradation of performance on the KJ's

several are running 2's but eventually it does learn around it

I've read somewhere that Jet only tests their chips at WOT (Wide Open Throttle), so any day to day driving would not be affected anyway.

I had a Jet stage 2 on my 98 Grand Cherokee 4.0L and never had a problem.

I'm curious to find out of the B&G tune would deal with some of my complaints with how the PCM responds to my throttle requests, especially since I have the 6spd. Sent them an email and I'll report back.
