You can order it with out those sensors, but you don't get the led taillights without them.

Video doesn't show the entire scenario. The driver wasn't wearing a seatbelt and door wasn't closed all the way. If those two conditions are met and the vehicle goes into reverse it assumes the driver is exiting the vehicle with it in reverse which poses a risk of the driver running over himself. In this condition the vehicle puts itself in park.

True. This is because of the Nanny State we live in. You can’t buy a plain vehicle in the United States, you have to pay for a bunch of government mandated safety bells and whistles, and emissions crap.

If you get the LED package, and don’t order the nanny group, you get the tail lights without the sensors.

Wow! That escalated quickly. I'm glad someone is on here with omnipotent insight into all of our life experiences that can finally rank our intelligence from just one post.

I am an engineer and was making a joke on myself and the rest of us engineers. But hey if you think I'm an idiot then I guess you're correct.

OK, right now, I don't own anything from Teraflex. I was thinking about getting their Tire carrier but with all the TF bashing you guys have me second guessing. Please point me to the threads that have the data that would help me make a decision against them. Seems like a bunch of opinions driving the bashing currently.

They’ll warranty the break. You’ll just have to keep putting on new carriers, and risk your tire falling off.

You'll forgive me but point out FACTS about products made by a company and backing them up with PROOF is far from what I would call "bashing".

What does the jl do if there’s no door on? I rarely am not wearing a seatbelt but could easily see on a slow trail hopping in and out without it and being very annoyed the built in nanny wouldn’t let me drive.

The way the JL is set up (as is JK) is the door switch is closed when the door is open and the switch is open when the door is closed. So when u unplug the door the switch us open, the jeep thinks door is closed. This is why dome light isnt on etc. Opposite of every other vehicle made just because if the removeable doors.

This all happened due to the electronic shifter issues in the WK2 Grand Cherokee. People would not bump the shifter far enough and get out with the vehicle in neutral, drive, or reverse, and subsequently get run over. Some people died because they weren’t paying attention to the shift indicator and what gear they were in. The result of Lawsuits and government regulation.

Yep. The dude who played Chekhov in the Star Trek reboot films got rubbed out because of that. Lawsuits ensued.

Hard enough that a couple of people died and the shifter was redesigned.

I used to investigate traffic crashes involving fatalities and it’s amazing some of the dumb shit people do. We recently had a guy that clipped another car and when the airbag went off he bailed out because he thought the car was on fire and it continued down the road through a house.

That’s exactly why this is going on. I remember fiat/chrysler taking a ton of heat because of this. Checkov jumped out of his grand Cherokee to close his driveway gate and thought he was in park. He wasn’t. Car was in neutral and rolled down the driveway and smashed him.
