Weight Sensor on JK Passenger Seat?

Greetings,
I've looked around the internet and this forum, but my Google kung fu is weak. Can anybody tell me if the JKs have a weight sensor on the passenger seat? My wife's Toyota insists that my 40-pound dog should fasten his seatbelt. Would be nice if we could avoid the bells and flashing seatbelt lights when he rides with me when my 2017 JKUR arrives (hopefully mid-October).
Thanks,
Mark

It does. The seatbelt reminder will chime if a person or heavy item is in the passenger seat.

Thanks! Hadn't thought about the seatbelt extender.

Anybody have an idea what the magic weight is?

The chime can be disabled. No need to use a seatbelt extender.
