Code reader

What kind of Jeep (Chrysler) code reader do you guys use and where can I get them that is not too expensive. I just thought that it might be handy later.

Just for reading trouble codes or other parameters on your Jeep? If it's just trouble codes use the ignition key method that displays the codes in the odometer window.

Oh, I'm not sure if 2000's have it. You could always try and see what happens.
