The '12s do, so I suspect all of the JK have them.

All Wranglers since 2007 (all JKs) have them.

Basically they record info that be recovered in a crash.

And, if you cheat on your significant other, I believe the black box will shoot off an e-mail, ratting you out.

Some of the required crash data stored includes pre-crash speed, engine throttle, brake use, measured changes in forward velocity, driver safety belt use, airbag warning lamp status and airbag deployment times. It saves the last 5 seconds of data before the accident. Almost all car makers use them now. GM started back in the mid 90s on most of their cars. The manufacturer or police can pull the data for use in court.
