Found this letter interesting. Seems the computer wasn't reporting on a problem that several gladiators dealt with.

what looks sketchy? Looks like a prretty normal recall to me. Sounds like they have just found a software defect in the code that was loaded onto a certain batch of PCMs and it will require a quick reflash at the dealer.

I don't see anything odd here. It looks to me like they had the misfire issues, investigated them, found out that there was an issue with the PCM not throwing a CEL when it should have, and have now released a fix for that error. Since properly detecting misfires is needed for emissions control, it quickly becomes an emissions-related recall.

Obviously this could be and probably is exactly what it says. An error in detecting misfire. On the other hand, when you consider some of the early misfire gremlins, it's not shocking that some will see this recall and wonder. My Gladiator has been pretty solid although it does occasionally have a rough idle where it feels like it might cut out. That could just be normal. It's just guesswork unless after the update people start throwing codes. My original post was wondering if this could be related to or a partial cause of the early issues and if anyone had more info.

At my most recent service day after Thanksgiving, they notified me there was a recall on my truck (2020 LE) and I think this was it.

Concerned? Call your dealer and set up an appointment. Or trust the internet.

Mine does the same when warming up. After that it's golden.

If you have the superchips tuner does it have to be disabled, and returned to stock setting before this update?

Called my dealer and he looked it up and said there are no open recalls on mine. 2020 JTR. Guess I'm in the clear.

I would! Otherwise they will flag it and you may not get any service
