Default Can I buy a used tuner and use it on my truck?

I found a DS Predator on craigslist which has been used on a 2007 Hemi Ram. My truck is a 2010. My question is can I buy it and use it for my truck? Or should I just buy a new one. Buddy wants 350 CDN for it. From what I've read it doesn't sound like it but I really want to make sure.

It's the same part number, just make sure the other truck was set back to stock! You'll probably have to update it online first

I am always hesitant about buiying used tuners cuz if they didn't return the stock tune then you've spend the $$ and can't use it until you get diablo to unlock it for you, $150.

If he's asking $350, I'd get a new one, that's ridiculous. Speedlogix sells a new one for $289 and even adding the PC interface (HIGHLY reccommend it) you're still well below that seller's price.

Yeah I bought a used one from ebay but it was put back to stock

You have to install the dsdownloader
install the rev. For the 09-10 trucks and You will have to update your truck its not hard just time consuming. It took me about an hour and a half to get it set up

Thanks guys. Much appreciated I'm going to order a new one from the site CdnoilRAM posted. A new one with the PC Interface will be cheaper because I'll have to take the ferry over and back which is another 140 right there. Plus it'll be new and we all like new things right?

I found a tip for bringing stuff into canada... if it's light, ship it by air... you don't pay brokerage fees on it that way. You pay more for shipping, but then you don't have that $30-$300 brokerage fee waiting for you. It annoys me the most that it's never the same, or even a percentage of the price, it's totaly random.

Back when I had my Dakota I bought my programmer off a guy on a Dak forum and everything worked fine and saved 150$ to this day I still use that same programmer on my Ram just make sure the previous owner has returned his truck to stock and it should be a great improvment for you and save you some cash

Hey guys. Ok, this guy emailed me back and took my low ball offer of $175.00 for the programmer. It's a good price for it. He assures me he put his truck back to stock. Is there any way to make sure the programmer is good to go without plugging it into my truck. I am going to walk onto the ferry to go get it. I suppose then I'll have to get the PC interface for the programmer to update it to be used with the 2010 Ram as he used it on his '06.
So in short.. Any way to confirm he's returned his truck back to stock so I can use this programmer? and I have to get the PC interface cable to update the programmer to use it with my truck.
Thanks again guys. Hope this works out

Take your truck to him with the predator and plug it in while he watches. SHouldn't say its "married" to his truck anymore I would think? Then you should be good and need to update it now.

I'll be finding out myself tomorrow, I'm going to buy a U1737 from someone on craigslist in scottsdale for $200 or just use one from an 05 I just sold that I reinstalled factory tune on...hopefully!
