AEV's Procal Module 08 Wrangler

So i had my transmission looked because its doesnt seem to be shifting correctly. After Mr Transmission done their test, they said it needed to be reprogrammed per a TSB. Which will cost about $80 from the dealership. Question is does anyone know if AEV's procal will reprogram it? i know it does a lot of different things with newer JK's. Wasnt sure about my model though. any input would be great. thanks

Reprogrammed how? What is your tranny doing? Are you running bigger tires and a lift?

ditto - all the Procal does is take the revised tire diameter and diff gear ratio into account to reset the auto shift points...if your auto is currently working, then why would it need reprogrammed? Your profile does not seem to indicate lift or large tire use.

It's not shifting correctly. For instance if it's in 3rd gear and I'm going up a hill it "bogs" down but never shifts to second. It's the same thing if I'm off-road and it's in second gear if I'm going up a hill at a slow pace it will bog down and never switch to 1st gear it would probably die if I didn't manually change it or completely let off the gas pedal. I looked up the tsb for it and in 2009 I believe it was posted and it had to do with the trani not changing between 1 and 2nd like it's supposed too. And yes I'm running 305/70r16 With a 2.5 inch lift.

Yeah, that is basically a 33 in tire...guess you need some re-flashing of your ECM at the dealer.

Yeah. The main reason I was asking is because I found a place that is selling the module for $80. But if it won't fix the issue I won't bother.

Reprogramming for aftermarket parts is different than reprogramming per a TSB. Were you given a number for reference?

The TSB can correct certain shifting parameters,but the dealer won't corrrect the shift requirements for 33" tires, you'll hafta get at least a AEVPM-

Mine has allowed me to alter my shift avenues whenever I want a tiresize change--

There are many other programs available in the AEVPM and for $149 bucks it's well worthit-

I've used mine for over 4 years with no problemo-
