I do not experience any sway. The air bags are at 60 psi and the tires are at the spec pressure 80 on the rear and 75 on the front. We travel on I95 at speeds up to 70 mph.

Phelpo, usually between 65-70 mph. I keep the tires at the pressure on the sticker on the inside door, which I have to look at every time! I think the air bag pressure should help the sway.

Contacted the vendor and the next day sent out a new tune program that resolved the check engine light. Overall we are very satisfied with the results and the customer service. Have not filled the tank after our last trip we went about 250 miles on a half tank of regular gas.

Please post web site for your 5 star tune. Thank you.

Before taking it to a Ford dealer for service reinstall the factory program.

owners of 3010ds and 3011ds how does your rig drive?

Ok, here's my experience with a 2012 3010ds. I carefully check the air pressure. Running 80 psi rear and 75 fronts. I also work on balancing the weight side to side. At 5000 miles I had the rig front end aligned. Amazing difference. I also run 65 psi in the air bags. A truck shop did my alignment in Delaware Ohio. Very good folks.

I have zero and I mean zero problems with semi's or large trucks. Believe it or not I will get a slight push from a full sized pickup or van only traveling in the same direction but nothing from a large truck in either direction.

It handles very well and I'm very happy driving it at whatever speed.

Tire inflation, air bag pressure which transfers some weight to the front axle, and front end alignment are the keys.

I also don't feel I need a tune. It takes a while for the motor to break in. Seems like it has plenty of power now at 9000 miles versus when I first got it. Out to Colorado last year it did great.

The engine has plenty of power. We did not have a problem with that it was when the transmission was shifting that was the issue.
