It looks like it just plugs in to the OBD II port...

I have used the tuner and it works great. I noticed better throttle response and better low end power. I dont think you can use it on more than one vehicle as it pulls the info of that vehicle when you first hook it up. Nevertheless, I dont know if you could swap multiple FICMs onto one vehicle and tune them all. It may be worth a shot.

Is it just plug and play like a sct tuner? Does it come tuned already or does it have to get tuned for your truck? Very interested as it requires no down time.

Yea it is plug and play just like a SCT tuner. Yes the tuner comes loaded ready to rock and you dont have to have any down time unless you are swapping out FICMs completely.
