Is idling or cooling off before turbo engine shut off still necessary?

The tazer has an option that enables a cool down mode, but keeps the engine running on either a timer or until it reaches a target temp.

Between the cooling circuit and the recommended full synthetic, I'm not sure if idling down is even needed anymore.
I did not know this I will check it out

I forgot to add that the cool down mode enabled by the Tazer is specifically meant for being used off road if or when engine temps start peaking after some heavy working. When I made my opinion about it not being necessary, I should've specified during normal daily driving. Unless you just got done trying to keep up with a buddy that just did a hemi swap, or something of the like.

No one in the family, or I, ever needed to let it sit and chill, so think your Jeep's fine.
