? about PCM and or GEM

new to me 2000 superduty f350 dually put the auto engenuity on it and has a code for 4wd (2 in fact) truck is 2wd so i'm assuming that the pcm has been changed or would that come from the gem module truck runs fine. if I take it to the dealer do I just have them reflash it?

1) 99 f-350 srw 7.3 6pos. bully dog, afe intake, mrbp 4" exhaust,250,000 miles and still rollin.
2) 2000 excursion 7.3 afe intake, mrbp 4" exhaust. chip coming
3) NEW TO ME2000 cc drw 7.3 let the mods begin
4) FOR SALE 87 f250 6.9 9' utility body.
5) SOLD 91 f150 good truck just well used.Gonna miss the old girl allways started even after sitting for 6 months.

I think i'm trailer poor ) 22' w\18' tilt car hauler, 18' flat bed, 2 horse D&D, 12' utility, 19' "v" nose, and 37' 5er

Because if you think that a wadded up piece of paper is actually getting the chit off of your butt.....then I have to ask a question....

.....if you wiped a turd on your arm....would you just use a paper towel to get the turd off?.....or would you wash your arm?...


...let that thought roll around in your head for a moment...


" thank you tank for that insightful thought

Thats what I was thinking. If your truck is a 2wd, why are you worried about codes that are for 4wd. GEM module was probably swapped from a 4wd. As long as everything else works I wouldnt worry about it.

My motto: Be nice, be polite, but have have a plan to kill everyone that you meet.

94 F250 IDI turbo, auto 2wd.. ATS housing, 3" down, 4" exh, guages. 104k miles got totalled by a damn mustang (parts now).

98 12v, 4x4 quad cab. auto with BD T/C & V/B, Banks Big head, Exh brake, AFC modded, 16.5ish*, KDP gone, 60lb springs, 4K-GSK, BHAF, pyro, trans, and boost guages. 4" straight pipe,
