the JL Sport S has the 5in screen and can be upgraded to the 7 but not the 8.4 from the factory. Is it possible for a dealer to upgrade it to the 8.4 ?

Possibly. You can do that with other FCA vehicles. You can buy the 8.4 and have your dealer flash the screen for your vehicle. Since the bezel outters are the same, I assume you'll be able to by ordering the screen and bezel at some point.

I've seen a lot of other FCA cars from 2016+ swap in the biggest screens. Lots of Challenger/Charger people do it on youtube.

Potential issue could be that the smaller units are still running Uconnect 3.0 and the new 8.4 inch in the JL is the upgraded 4.0. Older Chargers/Challengers were always on the same platform/version of uconnect.

I ordered the 8.4 but dealer didn’t click it.

Arguing with sales guy if it will fit. Anyone know if 8.4 will fit? I said I would wait a couple of months for the 8.4s to become available.

not going with the bigger screen is a small regret I have. the trim piece that compensates for the smaller screen is a bit of an eyesore.

IIR, the 7” also runs Uconnect4.

Just looked it up. You’re correct- all three screen sizes are running on the new uconnect. I don’t remember where I read something to the contrary. Thanks for checking me on it!

Now you're edumacating me ... I thought the 5" was on Uconnect3. Wasn't really paying attention to that one though cuz I ordered the 7".
