    Hey now... This is a US made product, it's a lousy $130 and that includes shipping, it has a warranty and like real humans if you have a problem.
    I installed this device and it works perfect, that's all that needs to be said.

    I hope it costs $2.00 to make it and they are making a ton of profit, I learned very early in my self employment (retired now), that profit isn't a bad word.

    If someone want to get rid of the annoying feature, its going to cost $129, well unless they want to buy the Taser for $300.
    I'm 100% sure they can sell it for $50, no warranty, quality gone and no support, oh, and you will have to pay those money grubbing whores at the USPS for shipping...
    Seems some people want everything for nothing these days.
    Device $50
    Shipping $20
    Support $20
    3 year warranty $30
    Um... right back to the original price, but I have not included anything for QUALITY, that in itself is worth more than the selling price.

    Hi ,
    Thanks for the photos. How did you get that panel off to make more space ?

    hi

    I did not remove any panel. I know you have to work with very small area but it is doable.
    You can remove the panel that is under the steering wheel and the side panel have more room but in my opinion it is not required.

    Will this work in a 2020 JL? Web page still only shows 18-19, but I assume that is just because the 2020s are just now rolling out.

    I have shipped two out to 2020 JL owners and I am just waiting on them to install and report back before I update the website. I have high expectations that it will work fine on the 2020s. We have already shipped dozens for the 2020 JT Gladiator.

    Installed mine yesterday on my 2020 JLUR and it works perfectly. Installation was tougher for me then most for some reason? I was able to get the unplug it, but plugging the Smartstop in was a bear. Took me 30 min or so maybe? Again, this seems to not be typical so prob not that hard for all.

    This right here is why I am going to support this company. People spoke, they listened and acted. Yeah I know it’s only a couple of cable ties, but they responded. Not sure when but I need two of these. One for wrangler and one for my wife’s Cherokee. Any chances of a BOGO for 50%?

    Jim, thanks for your support!

    PM me with the details of your Cherokee (regular or GRAND Cherokee, model year, trim (Laredo, Limited, etc) and I'll work up a good deal for you. Also provide me your email address in the PM.

    I removed my SmartStopStart module today when I took my vehicle in for service. I was immediately reminded why I love this device - every time I got back in the Jeep to go somewhere i forgot to hit the disable button, and then engine shut off at the first stop. ESS is very clunky on the 3.6, and all that wear and tear on the starter and engine + no heat at every stop. very happy I purchased this item.
