Starting Jeep in 4lo?

Hey I've read here on the forum that you can start your jeep in 4lo without depressing the clutch.
I've tried it but maybe I'm doing something wrong?
If you could explain this id appreciate it thanks for answers!

You have to put the fuse in to disable the clutch in only starter safety feature (read in your owners manual how to disable)

What year TJ? Whether you install a fuse or move a cable connector to disable the clutch interlock depends on the model year. Your owners manual will describe how if you have it.

It's an 05 sport sorry I didn't think about that. But I'll have to give it a try I don't have the owners manual but maybe I can find one since I'd like to have one anyways.

You have to move a cable connector on my 04, it's probably the same on your 05. I'll post the page on how to do that tomorrow.

I figured I better post it tonight so I don't forget it. This diagram is from my '04 manual but it should be the same for your '05. I can't verify the '05 since I don't have my other model year manuals on line since I just upgraded my computer and haven't transferred everything over yet.

This is above the driver's side footwell.
