Predator

Alright so it seems like everyone wants to tune their trucks with the predator, but nobody really likes to shell out the 3-400 dollars to do it. Now I'm not too familiar with these units but am looking into getting one myself.

From what I've seen you can save tunes to the hand held unit them upload them to the PCM, but never really leave the predator unit in your jeep.

Would it make sense to turn this into a regional buy? I mean if two or three people wanted to use the same hand held locally I don't see why I wouldn't work out. Save each other a few dollars for future mods and everyone can enjoy a bit more performance.

Please let me know if I am wrong in thinking like this or if there is something I am missing.

Re: Predator

It will not work because once it's flashed to your vehicle it is married until you flash your vehicle back to stock.

Also the predator doesn't currently work on the 05's yet.

Re: Predator

Ok I'll admit I'll definitely looking for the cheap route. Definitely looking out for everyone else at the same time though.

The 05 is listed on Diablos website now. It wasn't a few weeks ago. Is that false hope?

Re: Predator

Yes.. I was the first to order for the 05 and there are plenty others that ordered after with no success. It is something there engineers are working on and right now all 05 jeeps and durango's are affected.
