May have to return your brothers truck back to stock first.

Yes you can. You do not have to do anything to your brothers truck. Just plug it into your port and it will boot up. You will be able to get the info you need. It also works for trouble codes. Contrary to popular belief, it will not use an unlock. It will only use an unlock if you download a program to your truck. Just reading strategy and/or trouble codes from other trucks is no problem.
