Snap On - MT2500

Question -

I can get a MT 2500 from a buddy who is closing his shop. He will charge me 100.00 comes with all the parts I need for my 88 and he said it all works. Is it worth it?

I have you tubed some of them they look kind of like a Lazy mans voltmeter for the renix motor?

If it has the cartriges for OBD1 and OBD2 and all the adapters that go with it its worth it.
Its a little old school but updateable, I have had mine for 20+ years and it has served me well.

It is coming with the adapter that I need for the 88. It also comes with and ODB2 but not ODB1. I went ahead and bought it from him. I should have it early next week.

Figured it can't hurt. More Tools the better right?

Actually your Jeep is OBD1 you require the chry1 adapter, there are other adapters available for ford,gm and others.
Make sure the power cord is included, it plugs into the adapter and clips to the battery or plugs into the lighter without this OBD1 wont work.
OBD2 is only 1 adapter with a set of keys that plug into it for different applications.
You should have at least 2 sets of cartridges one set older than 1995 and another set for OBD2 (1996 and newer).

I thought ODB and RENIX were different. 88 2.5L has the renix system.. It is coming with the jeep-1 connector.

Not anymore, as far as updates go. If you have the flashable cartridges, I read that Snapon dropped support for them a few years ago.

For a guy that has a lil older vehicle, they aren't a bad tool at all. A lot of them are out there still. I cut my teeth on diag work using one.
