Ok guys I need some advice or guidance. I’ve just acquired a Bulldog Triple Dog Power Pup from my grandfather that he bought for a Ford. The package states it is used on 06 Dodge, 03-06 Ford, and 06 GM. I’ve got a stock 07 LBZ with a little over 200k miles. I’m not looking to burn the tires off my truck by any means but some better MPG would be great! My question is, is it ok to just plug the thing in and go with it or is their anything I should do or need to know before I do?

I don’t have the time or the money to mess my truck up and I’d rather get some input from people with experience than just talk to some personal the phone reading off a scripted answer sheet.

Put it back in the box & toss it or give it back to your grampa. Bully Dog + GM = issues. If you don't have money as you stated to get a proven tune (EFI) don't mess with your non DPF, DEF truck & leave it.

Do the bully dogs have a history of causing a lot of problems? I’ve got no idea. All I’ve ever heard on this site is get EFI but I don’t thinkI could ever justify since I’m not gonna be hot roddin around. Would really just like to get my towing MPG up into double digits.

Well they’re the same truck so...
‘06 begun with the LLY and ended with the LBZ. Tuning for each is different. So if the BullyDog doesn’t specify for use on both I wouldn’t put it on my ‘07 LBZ. That’s just me...

I'm not going to say every one out there causes issues, but 2 buddies of mine tried it & both couldn't get the issues they were having resolved. 1 was a lly & other was a lmm.

I thought the same thing. But I figured it would have included the other years for the lly. It’s odd that it list only 06.

Just to make sure I rechecked the boxes and it is for 06-07 based on the booklet inside. Not sure how I missed that.

Wish I could just get the EFI!! I definitely don’t need any issues to be troubleshooting. That damn 6-7 mpg hauling my travel trailer is just ridiculous.

I have an 06 GMC LBZ and have been running the Bully Dog Power Pup on the Tow/Economy setting for about 8 years with no issues. It's not the same unit as you have but mine has worked well. Increased fuel milage both running empty and pulling 8500 lb travel trailer. Get 10 mpg pulling the trailer. Truck has 321000 miles on it.
