I carry the Diablosport tuner with me at all times - mostly for the ability to read and reset codes. It has been nice to utilize the same programmer for three trucks (LBZ, LBZ, LMM) with only one $99 update requiring at trip back to the factory.

As for the tunes, they work but are a bid improvement over stock for what I do. If you want a sensitive pedal where only 1/2 throttle requests can result in rear tire smoke, well its in there.

JK offers the best tunes for a specific purpose, and makes great sense if you are tuning within warranty, and want to be able to switch ECMs to avoid detection.
