Negative. The ecm is model year specific on the KJ.
The only way to check is with a dealer scan tool.
Nothing planned at this time.
From what we hear, the recall does not include the ECO diesel. Rather it is mainly gas vehicles.

2014-2018 all use the same ecm, yes it will work.
This situation is a nightmare. We removed one on our truck, by spraying with penetrating lube and unscrewing 2-3 threads per year. After a week of repeated lubing and working the glow plug in and out, we finally got it out all the way. However, many shops and dealers snap off the glow plug and the head has to be removed. The glow plugs do not have anti-seize on them from the factory...big mistake.
The investment to do that is too expensive and we would never recoup the investment.
Send us an email so we know your name and we can look up your service record.

Thanks

No idea at this point, we will have to wait until the product is released to understand what ecm GM is going to be using. If like the L5P, it will be untunable.
The GDE tune is sold with the latest FCA release. If the dealer were to overwrite the GDE tune, we charge $50 to reinstall.
Our install setup is only for the first time. swapping ecms later on is just plug and play.

call us for further clarification.

If a customer orders 'off-road' tuning, they need to change the exhaust system at relatively the same time.
sardo_67 wrote:how does the engine brake option work? can i turn it on when i tow then off when i just want the mpgs?


The engine brake is active with engine rpm above 2000 and foot off the pedal. It has nothing to do with tow/haul.
Go for it, you will not have any issues.
