If you are the owner of a Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger, Chrysler 300, Dodge Durango or Jeep Grand Cherokee; then there is a good chance you know about the “Tazer” from Z Automotive. The Tazer has been the go to product for modern Mopar diehards looking for features that FCA US hadn’t offered on vehicles before. Features like Line Lock, being able to turn off your AWD system on your vehicle or running the vehicle in forced AWD mode, and even upgrading non-SRT models like R/T and Scat Pack models to have the SRT themed UConnect drive modes.
Well it seems the staff over there have been hard at work on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler (JL). They have been able to design a specific Tazer for the JL which offers buyers a whole range of new features. Best part about the Tazer, Z Automotive is constantly updating software so there will be even more features in the future when you updated the firmware via USB cable. That’s right, no feeling left out when new features come to market when you just bought the thing a week prior.
Listed below are some of the features of the JL specific Tazer…
“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.
