Hey All its been a long time...

I'll give a quick update.

It's now 10 months I've had my 2021 JLUR and 10k miles and I still have the hiccup. I tried using the Tazer to fully turn off traction control and it did not help.

I suspect, as someone mentioned way early on that this is a VVT thing.

I have since done the exhaust delete and it seems to have drawn attention to the hiccup (louder) but no harm.

I'm just used to it now.

However the rough idle I mentioned in the original post has gone away. I think it was after I changed the oil...

For future onlookers, don't worry about it, it's not going to hurt anything, just consider it one of the quirks that makes our Jeeps unique.

If you really hate it, I suspect a tune would resolve it but void your warranty.
