ABS programing and body modules are example of things that use the same computer, so its more than simply an engine thing. And given that all Chrysler code is proprietary and locked down, they pretty much have to reverse engineer everything. Look how long it took diablo to fix the WK2 ABS warning light.

Gear swaps for the metric gears, forget it. Its not new to the WK2, WK owners have been trying to get a gear vendor to make up some for years, never going to happen.

My thought that the tunes will not work is due to the fact the the Grand Cherokee is flex fuel engine. What I would give to copy the E85 tune from a Grand Cherokee and load it on my JKU!

E85 tunes on stock vehicles suck. They are so conservative with timing advance and such the lose a lot of mpg's. You would be better off doing something aftermarket tuner wise.

I have run into startup issues with custom E85 tunes on non flex fuel vehicles. But that being said, would still like to have a copy to tweak.

But is it a lot compared to the total market for tuners? That's what they base their decisions on. Please understand that it's clear that many folks with the V6 might like to have this capability, but the development cost has to be covered as well as a likely profit margin stream for any company to commit to something like this. It's already a niche market.
