Auto on headlights

I will be getting a new JK Sport. I was wondering if there would be a way to get the auto headlight turn on feature? It comes on the Sahara so the wiring should be there. I am spoiled my car has them and would like to have them on my JK.

That would be nice, this is the only vehicle I have that I have to turn the lights on so I usually am a little late turning them on. I guess since its the only one I drive now (can't see why I would want to drive anything else) I'll probably get used to turning them on and off again.

AEV ProCal can turn on driving lights. The Jeep has it in the programming but isn't turned on in the US. The Canadian market it is standard for example. The Dealer can do it if they really want to but many won't.

I've driven so many cars that have auto everything - lights, wipers, climate control, etc. I love that my Wrangler does not have these features. I prefer to control them myself. But to each his own.

I believe the ProCal can turn on the daytime running lights which are not meant for nighttime driving. I'm comparing a Sport vs a Rubicon too and really want the auto sensing headlights... if there was a way to add it I would be very interested.

Agree on the climate control, hated that in every car that has had it. Only other that I have had is the lights and I like it but it won't be hard to live without once I get used to turning them off.
