Types of Jeep Tuning Devices

Similar to any computer, there are a couple of entry levels. From simple plug-and-play devices, to more complicated tuners that require a personal touch. Throttle enhancers and pre-loaded tuners fall into the plug-and-play category while speedometer and gear ratio calibrators require some extra inputs. The most complex tuners adjust fuel maps and most times need some real time driving to dial in. While something like a Flashcal is the best tuner for Jeep Wranglers, it might not be the best for your situation. The more power you intend to push through your rig the more complicated the tuner you’re going to want to ensure the stock computer can handle it. If you only a speedometer recalibration after changing tire sizes, a plug-and-play device will do the job.

How Tuners Help on the Trail

While newer Jeeps have inclinometers from the factory, aftermarket tuners can provide enhanced functionality. If you ever wanted to know the exact pitch and steep of the grade you’re traversing, a tuner with an integrated touch screen can do just that. These types of tuners can also apply changes to an automatic transmission’s shift firmness, perfect for off-roaders who need 100% control over speed and traction on their trail of choice. As an added bonus, some displays can swap the sway bar disconnects on or off in electronically controlled Jeeps. If you just want a little extra oomph, a throttle enhancer that plugs into your OBD2 port will mitigate the delay between your foot and the computer.
