Customer Question
Hi I have WJ...

Hi I have WJ with 42re transmission. I change tyre size and need to recalibrate lockup when in locks. Can you help?

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your car. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Many thanks :-)

You have two options at this point. Both will be to program the pcm with the new tire size. You can take it to the dealer and have this done, or use a programmer like BULLYDOG to reset the tire size.
