OBD2 Cable useful at all?

I've got a USB OBD2-compatible cable that I had for my Mini Cooper S. I'm wondering if it's useful at all for my new JK, or if I should just sell it. Is there any software out there that will read/pull codes from the JK, allow programming, etc. that works with such a cable?

SSS/DIS software. A full, new bottle of power steering fluid, the special "socket" for getting the oil filter off, a low-profile jack and jack stands.

Crabs, the clap, syphilis... it's a pretty long list of things you can get from midget hookers.

And for the record, I'm probably judging you for your bad grammar or spelling.

Any standard OBDII program will read the codes which is all you can do. All you can do is monitor what's going on and pull/erase codes, you can't program anything on a '12 regardless of what program you have.
