@TheDreamcatcherJL:

No re-gear. Running stock. May change wheels and go with 33s down the road. Haven't driven much in 2020 due to COVID, so I barely have 4,000 miles on my JLU (purchased in Feb. 2020). I'd like to get some more mileage out of the stock wheels and tires for now. Also, I have a Sport Altitude and like the stock black 18" wheels.

To keep the thread on track, I used JSCAN back when I had my '15 JKU to enable DRLs and a couple of other things. So far, I've used JSCAN on my '20 JLU to disable fog light drop-out and enable Off Road Pages in my new 8.4" radio (upgraded from the 7").
You mentioned you went from the 7-inch Uconnect radio and upgraded to an 8.4 premium radio did you keep the OEM and you did this yourself I heard this was extremely difficult

@Wrangler man:

The upgrade is plug-and-play. I purchased from here.

Just wanted to circle back around in this thread and mention that I am now running with a Tazer Mini for all my programming needs. I’ve reverted all changes made with JSCAN, removed my AutoStop Eliminator and installed the Tazer this afternoon. Making changes is so much easier, not that JSCAN is difficult.

JSCAN was extremely helpful when I had my JK. It also got me going with several things on my JL. However, having recently gone up in tire size I decided it was time for an upgrade. I didn’t want to have to deal with connecting the bypass cable and OBD adapter any longer. Also, I got tired of having to remember where the various items I needed to change are buried in the JSCAN app.

One last thing I want to note. Using JSCAN to activate Off Road Pages on my 8.4” radio worked. However, only 2 of the digital gauges worked after. Activating user the Tazer Mini has everything working.

@jludave nothing wrong with either product, Tazer seems a bit more refined than JSCAN but this comes at a significant cost increase but hey what on a JEEP is cheap right.

I ran with the original Tazer two several years back when it first came out for the JL on my 2018 and had some growing pains with it and then ran with nothing except a Smart Stop/Start module and then went to JSCAN to try something different and honestly my BT module and cable has been sitting in my toolbox as I made a few changes and then experimented with other settings like adjusting IBS limits but in the end I only changed a few things.
