Most likely because the tunes were not in your family of strategy's (TEC5, TEC6, etc) or because the tuner was locked?

There are a lot of different strategy codes/computer codes for these trucks. I don't recommend trying someone elses custom tunes on your truck. If the binary type(different strategy family) are different, your truck won't start, nor will it return back to stock. So, you'll be stuck towing your truck to the dealer for a reflash.
