Can't see why you wouldn't want the wear a seatbelt unless you are tremendously fat. I got hit by a drunk driver when I was 16, t boned when he ran a stop sign. My car ended up spining across the intersection and came to a stop against a tree in someones lawn. When I got out to go have words with the asshole who just wrecked my new car I found he wasn't in his car anymore, but across the intersection right behind my car stone dead.

The police said he was probably doing about 45 and never hit the brakes.

I always wear my seatbelt, but the chimes are annoying if you're just stopped and sitting in the vehicle with the AC on, for example. My Audis were terribly annoying but a quick VAG code adjustment fixed that. I'm sure Chrysler has a way to do it on the WK2.

Copied and pasted from this thread:
http://www.jeepgarage.org/f181/seatbelt-chime-13903.html

To remove seatbelt chime
1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, and fasten the drivers seatbelt.
2. Start engine, and wait for Seat Belt warning light to turn OFF.
3. Within 60 seconds of starting engine, unbuckle and then re-buckle driver's seat belt at least 3 times, ending with belt buckled.
4. Turn off the engine. A single chime will sound to signify that your life is in your own hands.

It can take several tries to get it disabled.

_______


It works. The seat belt warning light will remain on.

I've seen more dead bodies smeared across the road and ejected from SUVs in 1 life-time than anyone else should have in 100 life-times.

OP: Do you have a wife and kids or other family? Choosing not to wear your seatbelt is a pretty selfish decision if so.

Sorry I can't help you with your original post, but as a public servant, I felt it was my duty to remind you of that.

And as an adult living in a free country the OP can make up his or her own mind what level of safety he or she desires.

I wear a seatbelt ,but I also disabled the chime.

Wrong. The OP is in N.C., he doesn't have a free choice. It's against the law for him to operate that vehicle and not wear a seatbelt.
