I just went through this....I couldn't justify spending what people wanted on them. Considering I can get an mdi from the dealer I used to work at for $1200. People still want 2kish for used tech 2s. I just bought a 6mo old snap on solus ultra pro and does everything the tech2 does. The fast learns are the same, they show the same data etc. the tech2 won't work on trucks after 2013.

From what I understand they are plenty up to date as it sits, but like Logan said they wont work on 13+ so I would consider that. For the price its good to just have one regardless. Im going to order one for the hell of it .

What all can you do with one of these beside data stuff? Can I change stuff in the bcm? Do you have to have other modules to make it do neat stuff? I have zero experience with one
