Do Jeeps have the built in "Black Boxes"?

I know some vehicles black boxes that save telemetry info, do Wranglers? If so i'm interested in viewing the data.

Pretty sure that information isn't accessible by you, or even the dealership (go higher in the service side) Information is usually stored in the airbag control unit for deployment readings

I just picked up a 2010 and in the manual it talks about recording the last 5 - 7 seconds before the airbags go off... wheel speed, brakes, engine etc...

I have read that most newer vehicles do keep a rotating log of a few milliseconds, some up to 5 or 10 seconds as stated above.

I think they are a great idea and would like to see them keep an even longer log, say 1 or 2 days.

Not sure how to get the data out, but I would start at a dealership and go up from there. Would be neat to see.
