To my knowledge - no. The 2014 and earlier trucks are on the last generation of as-built as I mentioned, and this doesn't seem to work in any Ford vehicle that isn't on the current generation of as-built.

Side note: is there a way of referring to the different generations of as=built that I'm not aware of?

HOWEVER, the FORScan devs are working on adding a PCM module initialization procedure to relearn vehicle data, and this apparently reads the BCM data for tire size into the PCM on the newer vehicles. This has been used with some success to eliminate the DTC you get from this mod in 2015+ F150's. I do wonder if something like this is what's needed to make the mod work in earlier gen as-built vehicles. See the tail end of this thread:

I downloaded the AS BUILT from the truck and online. Here is a screen shot of the current state of the ABS module in my 03 7.3 PSD. Note, the tires have been adjust by the FORD tool a few years back so I wonder if that is what is causing the 'error' in the two lines that say Tire Size. Any thoughts or suggestions on what to do next? I would really like to figure this out but need some help if possible. Thanks!

I have a 2014 Super Duty.... None of this is working. As soon as a plug in a hex value out of range it throws codes. I also have tried the PCM re-learn, the TCM re-learn does not work, errors out and quits.
