    Will be interesting to see if they will have something like the JK cage carrier. How that would work with all the new lines of the JL.

    That would be an interesting trick given the lane sensor thingies (yes, technical term) in the taillights. Can that system just be abandoned without causing a litany of idiot lights to be on all of the time?

    Due to the fact that the sensors are part of a federally required safety system, it is doubtful that you can de-activate them at all ;/

    Interesting, for some reason I didn't think they were on all models (i.e. I thought they just came with the LED package). Learn something new every day with these JL's.

    You could shut off blind spot so carrier didn't set it off, see pic I happen to be driving one with it, but if you yank the lights totally will throw all kinds of errors.

    Blind spot isn't mandated and is only there if you order it. 20180228_175240.jpg

    Correct. I ordered mine without the safety package and without the LED package. So the sensors are not there.

    Would a special light harness/adapter be needed if one swapped from the spot monitor version to one of the puck versions scene with the corner armor.

    If you remove the blind spot monitor lamps no harness is going to save it. Will pop errors. Until someone hacks the system to shut them off some day. If you plan on doing armor some day and replacing with round type lamps I'd highly recommend not getting blind spot as of now.

    Blind spot only comes in safety group. If u get led package without the safety group they are not in there. The housings look the same but totally different parts.

    Good to know. Thanks for the info.

    Me personally, I'm safe. Or is NOT safe as I do not have the safety group. Lol. Guess I can more easily do what want in the future.

    What happened to teaching people how to use mirrors and check their blind spots before changing lanes. Safety features are making people dumber, not accountable, and less safe... But yes I can't wait to see what EVO has in store for carrying the spare.

    People might be dumber, but vehicles are a lot safer than they used to be. I'm all for the extra safety features, though people still need serious behind the wheel education and repeat behind the wheel tests.

    But yeah, carrier options will be interesting.
