'07's need to be flashed with an update before the above procedure will work. I had mine done for free at the dealer, turned it off and never looked back.I think it depends also what year JK. The '07 is not nearly as reasonable on disabling the ESP as the later years. If you want to dig into the console to do the wire disable, let me know and I'll walk you through it.
If you have never flashed your 07your not doing the hokey pokey at the end ,thats why.
i have no idea i tried to do it to my 07 (no flash from dealer) but it didnt work
Ummm, not true. the off button mode only works up until about 20-30 mph, then it will kick back in even if the light is on (telling you its off)correct

the most comprehensive way to turn off big brother is to remove the fuses that govern the traction control and ABS.
I pulled mine the first day and have been government free ever since. it is also much safer off road, the last thing you want is to nail the brakes only to have the system start to modulate and keep going rather than slide a bit and stop.
15 years of off road racing, ABS sucks in the dirt.
Do you only have to run through this procedure when you want it off permanently?
Good point. I wonder how they would view my switch. Need a black box.Just a thought. You might want to read the fine print of your insurance policy about disabling safety features.
They usually overlook mods, but intentionally and permanently disabling a factory safety feature is another thing. They look look for any way they can not to pay you.
If you lose control and wreck it is hard to prove big tires or a bumper caused it. Much easier to prove no ABS, ESP etc at the time of the accident.
