    It looks like Z Automotive will be releasing their Tazer product for the JL soon!

    Z Automotive Technologies


    Introducing the new Tazer JL from Z Automotive! Similar to the popular Tazer, the Tazer JL is to be an essential tool for owners of the new 2018 Wrangler JL.

    At initial launch, it already has an impressive list of features:

    Simple, plug-in installation - 2 parts: a bypass module plugged in above the OBD2 connector, and the Tazer JL itself which plugs into the OBD2 connector.

    There are two sets of features - those that program the vehicle to accommodate modifications made to the Jeep, and the "live" features that run only when the Tazer JL remains plugged in.

    These are all accessed using the dash display, using steering wheel buttons to navigate the menus.
    Settings - once the Tazer is "married" to the Jeep, the following menus can be accessed. Unmarrying the Tazer JL will bring the settings back to stock.
    Perf menu:
    Adjust for alternate tire sizes up to 41"
    Adjust for alternate axle gear ratios
    Adjust for alternate transfer case LO range ratio

    TPMS menu:
    Disable TPMS system if desired
    Change front/rear TPMS warning PSI limit

    Radio menu:
    Disable Backup camera
    Enable Cargo Camera input
    Enable CD audio input
    Disable TravelLink (weather warnings included)

    Lighting Menu:
    Change DRL region (type)
    Change DRL location
    Disable DRL Dropout
    Enable Fog lamp output
    Disable Fog lamp dropout
    Set LED 3rd brake light type
    Set LED tail lamp type
    Set Trailer Tow output for use with Mopar kit

    Other menu:
    Enable Aux switch settings in radio
    Enable Blind spot detection

    Live features - these run only while the tazer is plugged in:
    Light shows:
    Can be accessed from the keyfob or from the on-screen menu. 6 pre-set light shows and 3 make-your-own shows included. Set from the factory to only operate when parked, but can be unlocked for off road and emergency personnel use.

    Disable Navigation in-motion lockout - enter addresses while the vehicle is moving
    Auto Traction Kill - can be set to turn off traction control upon start-up
    Auto StopStart Disable - can be set to disable AutoStopStart upon vehicle start-up
    0-30 and 0-60 timers
    Cooldown mode - run engine fans when Jeep is off, to aid in cooldown

    Free USB updates - certainly more to come!

    Full production quantity due in by 4/1/18

    I wonder what they mean by "plugged in?" Spliced in? Sounds like a warranty killer. And before someone starts down the path of, "but the dealer has to prove your mod caused the failure," please see @Demonic's excellent thoughts on that topic in this thread.

    Anyway, it's an impressive list of features... except for ^this^ one. :lipssealed: TPMS and tire size features are especially enticing.

    From looking at their other products it looks like it is just plugged in and not spiced, but I have no idea how it will be on the JL!

    But just imagine all the guys with their light shows combined with excessive amounts of light bars. It's going to be glorious! :clap:

    Damn, why does it have to be plugged in for ESS disable?

    Needs a brake controller function maybe.

    But none of these listed features constitute an engine tune. I can totally understand denying warranty for an engine tune.

    Around $300 is what all the other ones go for.

    Cool.

    Does the Jeep computer automatically adjust all the 8-speed transmission shift schedules accordingly once it has the recalibrated tire size and axle gear ratios inputed from this device?

    There’s a customer service number on the website. My questions were answered well and pretty quickly.

    Just how illegal would it be to turn on that light show while driving down the highway to scare the shit out of slow left lane drivers? And is it possible to hook up aftermarket lights to it as well that you've hooked up to the Aux switches?

    Asking for a friend. :angel:
