    Now if your sport was changed to show “rubicon” splash screen on start-up, that they might notice.

    They have to go out of their way to look at the config counters, and above that, to think to themselves “gee why was this page in the config updated 4 times when the rest of the config was updated twice? Chances are, nobody cares.

    Now if you forget to unplug the SGW bypass, that’s a different story. They’ll plug in their scan tool and it won’t work. Simple as that. May take them a while to figure out why, but once they do, you’ll have to explain why the security module is unplugged and this magic box is in its place...

    Whoa, this is a big deal. But it's not all the surprising now that I think about it. That SGW is there for a very good reason: to prevent the sort of hacks that were reported a few months ago wherein the hackers could gain control of your Jeep remotely. I believe the exploit involved getting in thru the Uconnect and its internet connection. Bypassing the SGW leaves you wide open. IMHO, the probability of actually having someone hack into your Jeep is pretty low; leaving the SGW bypass installed is probably OK most of the time. But from FCA's point of view they have to do all they can to prevent it. I believe they're trying to do the right thing.

    So I'm going to have to remove the Tazer JL's SGW bypass. But it's such a pain to get to those SGW connectors! It would have been SO MUCH nicer if the bypass module had another pair of connectors and a switch so that one could just switch the SGW in or out without messing with the connectors. Then the dealer would never notice.

    It's curious, though, why the SGW bypass is even possible. Why didn't they put it deeper inside the dash where it would have been even more difficult to hack? Or even have the Uconnect or some other vital part of the car check for the presence of the SGW and refuse to start without it?

    Sounds like a cool product! I might need to get a JL to try it. Lol

    Ugh! My JL is headed to the dealer to address some unusual wind noise. Removing the SGW bypass and connecting the SGW again was almost as hard as installing the bypass in the first place. :-(

    If you remove the plastic below the steering column (easy off and easy on, takes seconds) the port where the SGW plugs into is very accessible.
