Do you have any installed pics? Thanks

It's where the diagnostics port it, down at shin level. I'll try to remember to get you a pic later. It's barely noticeable.

Oh OK, I thought someone said it was next to the hatch release and the panel needed to be removed and left off. If you get a second I would appreciate a pic. Thanks!

I ordered on of these for my 2015 Cherokee Limited and received it this week (I prepaid for it). Plugged it in and it works just like it is supposed to - the Stop/Start setting stays either on or off depending on how you set it and I never have to remember to turn it off (I prefer it off).

I am now a very happy camper - this little accessory makes my Jeep just that much more enjoyable...

I was ready to order but the fine print says cannot be sent to CA. Do you expect it'll ever be available in CA?

It will need be be submitted to The California Air Resources Board for approval. This is expensive and time consuming, so I'll have to see if the business justifies it over time.

Since the module does not increase running emissions, it should pass from that perspective. Overall though, I am not sure if they would pass it because one of the goals of the factory ESS implementation is to set the driver default to on to lower emissions.

www.SmartStopStart.com 3.2L V6 Engine Stop Start (ESS) the way it should have been designed.

Or, a solution is to have it shipped to a "middle man" who will then send it to the CA resident. Of course, we could never condone that behavior, now could we
