Never heard of one, the closest I've seen is the URD MAF reprogrammer. If you're running 35's shouldn't you be thinking about a regear instead of a programmer?

i was thinking more of adjusting my speedometer, changing the shifts and getting some more horsepower out of it. i dont plan on doing any hard core off roading with it.

JET Labs makes an ECU upgrade but the people who have gotten it say it's crap. Plus you have to send your entire ECU to them, making your truck useless for about a week and a half. You can't really do anything about the transmission as it has it's own separate control unit and adaptive shifting. Try unplugging your battery for about 20 minutes and it will reset everything and relearn your driving habits with the bigger tires. It should help.

changing the gears will help with all of those except the speedo. Gears is just not for offroading, but it helps bring the powerband back after the larger tires.

With a 6" lift and 35"s you have to re-gear if you ever want your mileage/power back. Even then it won't be as good as stock.

Anything else would just be wasting money.

I knew that.....
That's why I put "??" after it.....

It can and will adjust for larger tires (on the scangauge). And its much cheaper than a programmer.

There aren't a lot of programmers available for gas vehicles let alone toyota stuff.

Wow do people that mod like that really worry about gas mileage? Gotta pay to play as they say.

Shifting problem sucks though... try resetting the ECU as suggested earlier and let it relearn.

Actually, regearing can get the speedo to be more accurate.
In my 82 Toy when I was running 35's, I regeared with 5.29's and my speedo was dead on.

What about those devices I've seen for Ford and Chevy trucks called Edge programmers to adjust power. I saw an episode of "Trucks" where they used one to get more HP out of the truck, all with the push of a button. Yeah, right....

^^^ Those work and are proven to work but no one makes them for Imports they are for Domestic Vehicles for the most part. I don't know why almost no one makes them for Imports...most likely something to do with the ECU. They are very popular and effective on diesel vehicles!
