Actron Code Reader

Has anyone used the Actron 9180 code reader? I'm looking for a good reader that can also read the trans. Any help is appreciated.

I just Googled it quick, but, I don't think that thing is going to do ANYTHING for you...

Is just a cheap OBD-II (which your truck is not) generic engine code reader.

don't spend the money on it. It will not do what you need. In fact it will not even read any type of codes from your engine.
