That's the JK process where the have to add a chip and calibate. Your dealer doesn't know about the MVP plan. Show them the bulletin posted above. I had to do that here in Austin to get mine done. The dealer ended up giving me a discount for showing them how to do it.My local dealer today quoted me $175 for the software and $100 labor!!!
Your dealership was correct they cannot change your TPMS threshold you will have to buy a programmer to do that.My dealer said they can calibrate my speedometer for $250 but they cannot do anything about the PSI and that "NO DEALER IS ALLOWED TO CHANGE THAT". I responded: Interesting, lots of dealerships are doing it based on what I've read on the forums...
Unfortunately they won't do 33s but they can definitely do 35s. I wish they would do LED conversion and 33s. I'd pay rather than fool with a programmer that has to be removed when going to the dealer.Called up my local dealer and asked if they could recalibrate my speedometer to accommodate my 35’s. The service rep told me they have no way of doing it. Only way would be to purchase a aftermarket programmer.
Did you end up going to Wickstrom? I asked about it when I was there for the airbag recall and the guy told me they could do it but they calibrate it for only stock or 40" tires. I said huh? He said they only calibrate for stock size or the max tire size that would fit, lol.Wickstrom in Barrington ... i’ll follow up to verify they stick to the $115.

I just told him never mind.
I bought the hypertech calibrator for around $250 which worked perfectly... but when I got the beadlocks it screwed up my TPMS sensors. So I ended up returning the hyper tech and got the Superchips trailcal so I could turn TPMS off, calibrate the tire size as well as loads of other stuff.
Agreed... I bought the TAZER LITE and changed my own:The Tazer JL Lite is a FAR better way to spend the money than to give $100+ to a dealership for a one time service.
What ever happened, to a dealership (or businesses in general) that would say "I'm not sure, let me find out for you" or "Good question, let's go figure this out"? To not look an idiot, the dealer should of at least faked a phone call, then go look it up and come back like you knew all along. I guess those days are gone.That proves you're way smarter than your dealer. Its also scary that your dealer would ask that? Good thing they didnt put your Jeep together.
