I have a wildman chip in my 96 and love it. I have a buddy that has a dp tuner in his 02 and loves it. Long story short I dont think you can go wrong with either.

Everyone has their favorites. There are a ton of satisfied DP-Tuner customers, as well as lots of satisfied Wildman fans. Tony and Jody both do things slightly different, which is why you'll see some people prefer one over the other. It's all about personal tastes.

I've always been satisfied with Tony's programing.

I have tried a few others and was less than impressed.

I was at a dyno with two other similar trucks(OBS) we all had the same injectors, I had my Wildman and they had Jody's tunes. I made 2 more hp than one and 4 more than the other. So they are very close as far as performance goes. I think Jody's has some nicer features though.

As far as I can tell, they're neck and neck on the actual tuning levels, but I believe that Jody and Diane have Tony beat on the switch. Tony has great customer support and tunes, and so does DP. It came down to the final look of the installation, and the F5 switch has the rotary dial beat in my opinion...

The way I've always looked at these two is Tony seems to have single-shot injectors figured out very well which is why most OBS guys prefer Tony. Jody obviously has a good handle on split-shot injectors and alot of SD guys prefer DP. I have Jody (DP) tune my split-shots but if I ever put AC's (single shot) injectors in my truck I will probably be calling Tony.
