Ordering

Fellow Jeepers, I've been lurking for awhile and followed everyone over to this site. I'm getting ready to purchase a '15 MY this summer and I had a question for the experts and those who have previously ordered a Jeep build...

Is it possible to order a Wrangler without the standard ESC, Traction Control, and Electronic Roll Mitigation or am I stuck with the nanny controls per the gov?

My previous Jeeps were barebones as I think Jeeps should be. Less stuff to get wet and, ultimately, go TU.

Thanks in advance for any feedback I can get.

Re: Ordering

I wouldn't agree on calling it "stuck" - some of ESC works well, like the brake lock differential portion of TSC is good to have. You can turn some (partial off) or most of ESC off with a push of a button in 4H, most is off automatically in 4L.

You can't get a Jeep (or probably any modern vehicle) without the electronic "nanny" systems. But, you can completely disable all of it, including ABS, pretty simply, if you really want to take the risk....

Re: Ordering

Bill, thanks for your response. I was hoping for a couple more as well so I'm guessing you said it all.

I'd be interested in disabling the three systems I mentioned (NOT the ABS) and I've seen a couple of threads on that, but thought it would be easier just to get one w/out it. Looks like that ain't happening though...

Re: Ordering

Nope .... You're fighting the government and out litigious society on that one. Most of the "Nannies" are required by law and the rest are CYA
