I'm going to guess they don't have one for the 15's yet. I'd recommend researching them first. I have no experience with them and a Jeep. I know for my challenger it is invaluable.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Most tuners will improve throttle response and with a mild foot, can improve MPG. Check out this link, and select a 2014 Wrangler to read the reviews: http://www.autoanything.com/performa...flashpaq-tuner

DiabloSport Trinity is also a great option. More features, but more money.

Is there wiring that I need to do so the unit knows I'm in reverse? I have a manual transmission by the way. Thanks for any input.
For the 430N there's a specific connector you can use to wire up the camera. The full kit from brandmotion includes the connector but you can buy it separately elsewhere. The camera should have five wires, three go into the 430N, one for power from either the cigarette lighter (or from one of the reverse lights if you're doing a custom job and don't want the camera powered all the time) and one for ground.

For routing the wiring, I'd peruse the AEV instructions and the Brandmotion ones as well. Get some trim removal tools to avoid marking up the plastic pieces. The interior comes apart really easily. Just go slow and be careful.

If you go with the tire-mounted camera, I'd recommend running the wiring through the door via an unused rubber grommet that is to the right of the tire carrier (looking forward). Brandmotion instructs you to route it through one of the flapper vents but I didn't like the idea of that. Seemed sloppy.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

watch using tuners on newly released model years, lots of old threads about tuners bricking ECU's and costing owners much more in the long run!

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

After confronting my dealer I received this message:

"You are correct this is the statement from Chrysler

Wrangler 4dr (JL)
• STV mainframe change. PLC (Sunset Orange C/C) is unavailable from ordering on Rubicon Hard Rock Edition in the interim. Will notify you once paint is available for ordering again. (Updated 10/15/14)"

He believes it will become available in the next allocation but has no evidence of that.

Let's hope!!
