I haven’t tried either of those yet. I’ve played with speedo recal (tire size & axle ratio) since I have 4.88’s and also the horn and auto window settings. Will be installing 35’s next week and will test and verify speedo calibration against GPS then.

The great thing is that unlike the firmware based units like AEV, etc., the developer of this app is constantly improving it and adding features.

Okay, I made my decision.. Took everything we discussed and what I read and made the best choice for me. I decided on the AEV Procal.


First: I decided not to go with the phone app for two reasons that I'll admit aren't the best reasons.
1) It hasn't been around long and I personally don't know much about it...

2) When it comes to easily hack-able technology, I don't want it around my vehicles or my families safety anymore than it needs to be... I'll pay the premium for the less hack-able option.



Diablo - never made it past the initial conversation start.


Flashpaq- I really liked the idea of this.. ultimately It has way more than I want or need. The main reason I decided against it, glass and jeep have a tendency to lead to breaking. A Flashpaq with a cracked screen is a $170 paperweight.


So obviously the winner is AEV Procal. A durable easy to use design that is easily stored and forgotten. AEV is a good quality company and I'm using other AEV products on my Jeep.


Thanks again for everyone sharing their input.. I'll let you know how all the programming goes at the end of next weekend when we put on the wheels and tires.

So, I have a question, with that "trail view" screen, if you have a Rubicon, you can actually engage your lockers in 2wd and 4hi as well ? And if so, do you control them with the app, or with the factory switches?
Just curious.

I have crate axles with lockers in my Sport wired up stand-alone, but I have a few guys with Rubicons that I wheel with that would really love to be able to bypass the JK's "nanny"

I haven’t tested it in the field yet, but playing with the app in demo mode it appears that I can engage/disengage them independently in any gear/speed.

I liked the fact that you can, but my question/answer was, "Do I want to have that ability at a higher speed?" I can turn my steering wheel harshly at 100 mph, I don't want too..

Then don't. Do you think you need an FCA "Nanny" to tell you not to jerk the wheel @ 100mph? I don't, that is what common sense(remember that )is for

As a locker user for the last 40+ years, I do not need FCA to tell me how to use them. Experience as well as common sense tell me that.

I have routinely used my rear locker in 2wd, in a snowstorm on snow covered roads, as well as on the beach, on fire trail woods roads and many other instances, and yes, over 18 mph. The front locker is only used to get over an obstacle and then dis-engaged.

If you don't feel confident in using your lockers in any way other than FCA allows you too, then don't.

Just keep in mind there are some morons out there, that would engage a front locker at 65mph, drunk, on the way home from the bar, trying to show off for girl/boy friend and wind up on their roof. That is why FCA has to do what they do, but an experienced user, does not need a "nanny"

There is a difference between doing 40mph with the lockers locked on the road and having the wheels spin at 40mph and actually moving 2mph with the lockers locked while in mud.

Superchips F5 flashpaq

Started with the flashcal, upgraded to flashpaq & pretty impressed with the way you can adjust for performance. Not only do I use it for tire, gear adjustments, but TPMS disabled when airing down & adjusting from 87 oct, crawl, tow or 91 oct. which 91 oct gives you 30 more hp & 30 lbs. of torque. No regrets!

I have the flashpaq as well. In order to get the tunes for the extra ponies, you'll need to send your ecm in to Superchips. They will send you a compatible ecm for the swap. You can request for them to unlock your ecm and send it back to you if u don't want someone else's ecm. I found an ecm online with a couple of thousand miles on it for $100. bucks. I sent that in, superchips went through it, checked it, unlocked it and sent it back. No issues. Been running it for about a year now

I just put on JL rubi wheels/KO2 tires and recalibrated the size using OBD JScan. Dealership charges $120 and Vgate iCar Pro Bluetooth 4.0. Spent about $48. Worked perfectly.

Well, I used the AEV. It worked perfectly for everything.. and I like I can throw it in the back without worrying about the screen getting cracked.


IMO = money well spent.

I ran some JL Rubi wheels & 285s for about a week; I absolutely love the way they look. If you don't have spacers be careful about contact with your upper sway bar links while running those 285/70s (especially if you have a lift).

Also keep an eye on the way the lug nuts seat. I found some galling on the wheels when I removed them, which seemed to indicate that the taper is not quite exactly the same. (but it could have been caused by the tire shop over-torquing).
