Utopia question: adding protech package

On an altitude, all options beside the protech 1 package.

Would it be possible, by procuring OEM parts, and using the autoingenuity software, to add the protech group? (already have automatic headlights from another package)

PROTECH GROUP

$995
Included Features:
Advanced Brake Assist
Automatic high-beam headlamp control (already have)
Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking
Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist

Possible or practical? Don't know of anyone that has done it. I don't think there is an accessory kit in the catalog. Automatic high beams is the easy part.

Does the Altitude have cross path detection already?

Its not plug and play, there are expensive radar(s) to install, at least one module and camera (mirror assembly) and perhaps the exterior rear view mirrors. Then the option codes need to be added to the VIN and downloaded to the vehicle to activate software. Dunno if autoenginuity can do that.

Then there is the ramifications of running unauthorized software on warranties.

I don't think you will find all the parts you need, there may be some fabrication involved.

Some people think I'm stupid and I totally disagree. But my biggest fear is that me thinking I'm smart proves them right.

Didn't think about the option code bit... guess adding that to the Uconnect unit would be dealer only possibility, if my dealer even knows how to do it. Then, there would be, I think, 2 missing buttons on the u-connect unit bottom button row, which probably comes with the whole unit.

Clearly not like adding oem fog lights to those tacomas which already had the wiring harness. Thanks anyway coldcase

Yes, it would be far cheaper to sell the current car and buy a 2020 with the options you want - regardless of which year you have. The OE parts and wiring are probably $8k

If you really wanted it, the only way I would try it is to have access to a (junk/wrecked) donor with everything.
Then get a scanner/programmer and see if everything can be enabled in your Jeep. The radar sensor is crazy expensive, would be the biggest hit.

The radar sensor is much less expensive than I would have thought (reason why I didn't take the option was that I often hit hard snow up front, and thought that damage would cost me a small fortune), it's about 900$ oem. But for the advanced brake assist only (don't really care for lane assist), I think that'll wait for my next vehicle, hopefully a jeep, and that will include these new automated adaptive cruise control for the traffic jams, a real reason for having a radar there!
