2017 Rubicon

The 2017 Rubicon's have a smoother shift map for their DCT can this new mapping be put on my 2016 Ruby Deluxe?

There is suppose to be an ecm update coming out but it's not out yet. I hate saying stuff until I see it with my own 2 eyes but yes, your dealer can update the ecm in the future to the 17 mapping.

@dragerman @mr.coon The programming is out to update the shifts and it does take the harshness out of the shifts. This is not an update so the dealer will more than likely charge you for it. It should take them less than a half hour to do it. Their VCI has to be up to date and they have to get the rewrite files from their service rep but they can do it. The only other option is installing the 17 model ICM (PGM FI unit) at around $250.

Nope, it would be a plug and play.

No sport mode, it just changes the shift points to smooth the shifting out. Once it's reprogrammed it can not be undone if you don't like it. The only way to get it back is a new ecm for the 15/16 model.
