Bought Used Mini Maxx - Need Unlock Code

ok guys... help me out here.. my buddy got a used mini maxx today and knew the sucker was VIN locked. The guy told him it was. but the price was just too good not to buy it. i've been searching and searching for the last hour..... He called H&S looking for an unlock code.. and they basically said no chance. Please tell me there is a way with the MCC tuning or something to get an unlock code for this sucker... I'm gonna feel like an A$$hole cuz i'm the one who told him to buy it. I figured you could get an unlock code because it was still on their website. But tell me i'm a genius and there is a way around this?

Nope they won't give you one as they don't know if its stolen or if someone bought one tuner and is trying to tune multiple trucks. Sorry man but your **** out of luck.

What these guys said. If there's a way to bypass it, what's to stop guys from using it on several trucks? Sorry man but tell your pal he is SOL.

Well that sucks. Did he buy it off ebay? I almost bought a backup one off there the other day cheap that was VIN locked. Glad I didn't now. I had no idea they were not unlocking them anymore.

Well that's the best resolution. Good news. If he's still looking I have seen XRT pro's that are still reasonably priced.
