I bought dealer level tools to update all ECUs in Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge and Toyota/Lexus products.

A couple weekends ago I went thru and did all TSBs and flash updates for my vehicles myself without involving a dealer.

It was pretty cool to be able to do this in my garage. Some of the software updates made major changes (to the positive) in drivability. For example, my Hellcat had an outstanding TCM *(Transmission Control Module) update that completely changed the way the transmission shifts in sport mode. Prior to the update, when slowing for a light or a stop sign the downshift from 2 - 1 was so violent one would think there was a rear end collision. The new update completely resolved that and changed some other behavior.

In total I had 16 software flash updates to apply. PCM, TCM, HVAC, Body Control Module, ABS, etc.
