AE scan tool...

I'm considering buying one of these and have a few questions...Will I absolutely need the Ford package? Or will it do all I need it to do without spending an extra $200?? I want to be able to do buzz tests, monitor icp, ipr and all other engine sensors. Any opinions on why I either need or don't need the Ford package are welcomed. As always, thanks for any help.

on My 06 without the bundle it won't be worth owning IMHO

I use it on my ford with the bundle and can do tons of stuff and access modules like ABS /GEM/Trans? and a bunch more
and even find stored codes in those modules , I am not sure what all is accessible on a 7.3?

but on my Friends /wife's GM , Toyota and other makes it's a bare bone scanner IMHO

save up and do the bundle it will always make resale that much better anyway if you ever get rid of your truck and get away from ford

Definitely need the Ford package or you might as well buy a $20 ODB port one off ebay.

Yes you need the Ford Enhanced Bundle. It is $360 for everything on Riffraff.

Ok guys. Thanks. I was just seeing them for $250 plus a $200 Ford bundle and wasn't sure about that. But if riffraff has them for that amount, that's where I'll go.
