    VIDEO : JL JOURNAL - TAZER JL Programmer for JL WRANGLER / INSTALLATION & HOW TO USE

    If you've just installed a bigger set of tires on your Jeep JL Wrangler and are in need of re-calibrating your speedometer, you can go to your dealership and pay $150 to have it done or you can get a TAZER JL and do it yourself! Made by Z Automotive, the TAZER JL is a super compact programmer that that plugs into your OBDII and works off the screen in the middle of your instrument cluster and the buttons on your steering wheel. Of course, not only will you be able to set your own tire size, there's a ton of other things you can do with it including, changing your gear ratio after installing new gears, turning off your TPMS or changing its threshold and really, so much more. The TAZER JL also has LIVE functions, the ability to still use it while plugged in and options for it include things like, being able to turn off your Auto Start/Stop System and Traction Control. And, as silly as it may sound, it even has fun options like a light show with 6 different modes. The best part about the TAZER JL is that Z Automotive constantly makes firmware updates for it and they can be downloaded using their Program Utility software. With all that said, the following short video will show you just how easy it is to install and use on your Jeep JL Wrangler. We hope you enjoy.



    To see a written version of how to install and use the TAZER JL and complete with tons of photos, simply click on the link below:

    Great video. Could you elaborate why on the JL, you dont need to put in the actual size of the tire but rather the stated measurement? Also noticed you put in 37.064 instead of 37.00, why is that?

    I know, it's totally crazy. What I can tell you is that this is how it's done at the dealership and I have verified by GPS and local speed trap radar that my speedometer is on. In fact, I tried setting the tire size to what it's actual measurement is and my speedometer was OFF.

    Regarding the 37.064, I'm not sure what that that's all about but that's the closest option to 37.000 that I could choose. The setting below was something like 36.075. I should also note that the 37.064 is the value I saw as soon as I plugged in my TAZER JL for the first time - essentially, what the dealership put in.

    Got it. Funny, you made removing those harness clips easy, while others are cursing those things 103 ways from Sunday.

    LOL!! Honestly, I was wondering what all the fuss was all about. Seemed pretty easy to me even without removing the kick panel.

    It looks pretty easy, although on my JK, Ive had that type of connector be very difficult to remove. Once you got them started, theyd come out, but getting them started was a pain.

    I won't lie, there are some connectors that are a lot harder to remove than others. These weren't too bad as they were like old school phone jack plugs or CAT 5 plug and this as opposed to automotive plugs.
