    Best programer for a 2017 JK Rubicon.

    Looking for a programmer for a 17 Rubicon so I can adjust the speedo for tires and use lockers in 4 hi.

    I use the AEV procal for my Jeep, but I don’t think it messes with lockers. (I don’t have lockers so I wouldn’t know)

    When you say programmer do you want engine power performance changes or just the ability to change tire size and have 4Hi locker options? I went with the the TrailCal touch screen that gives you a ton on features but dose not have performance tunes. If you want performance tunes you need to unlock or swap your PCM.

    mainly want to be able to change tire size and use lockers in 4h. Anything beyond that would just be extra.

    I have no first hand experience with this product yet, so I was hesitant to post here but I wanted to post it here for the sake of discussion. I recently downloaded the "OBD JScan" app from the Google Play Store. It's a jeep-specific programmer app for your phone. I ordered a bluetooth OBD2 adapter, and it should be here within a few days. IF (big if) it works as indicated then I'll have some fantastic functionality for about a $50 total investment. Features include everything from idle rpm to speedo adjustment and the backup camera function... and several others

    But again, I have NOT personally used the product yet, other than to download it and play with the demo. I will be testing within the next several days (as soon as my bluetooth adapter arrives).

    Both of the Trail Cal and Flash Cal will do what you need. I have the Trail Cal and love the fact that you can lock the lockers in 4-wheel high and the rear in 2 wheel drive with the a simple touch of the screen. You can integrate lights to the toggle switches on the screen, it gives you roll and pitch meters and lets you monitor everything in your Jeep. You can also wire a front-facing camera up to it if you wanted to. It does tire sizing, gear ratio, and a bunch of other features.

    I’ve had a licensed JScan app and wireless adapter for a few days now and all I can say is wow! I just reprogramed my TMPS which is usually illuminated all winter. I also made a few other changes. I think we should start a thread because this could save people a pile of money if all they have are basic programming needs.

    Best programer for a 2017 JK Rubicon.

    I got the licensed app last week hoping to change my tpms and tire and gear size. Only to find out via Jscans website that my 2008 Jeep is too old. Most actual programming features are only available for 2012 an newer I believe.

    Did you look in the app? Looks like those items should be supported 07 to 18. Also the app was just updated yesterday or so. It might be worth another look. Admittedly, it seems to be a work in progress.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
