Hmmmm Work?
I have the Tazer and can confirm it will do nothing for the throttle. Lots of other great things, but not that. I came from an Audi and find I can get some satisfaction by using the manual shifter (although a** backwards) to stretch out the shift points and put some torq to the ground.

Do these options do anything to change the power band/shift points. Mostly curious if they help with bigger tires for those of us not in a hurry to regear.
No, it won't alter the power band. But after installing an iDrive and I find it's much easier to feather the throttle through the power band to make the acceleration smoother. The factory lag is a pain with the manual transmission.

Spot on! Made a world of difference on my 6sp manual; had pedal commander - pulled it out due to interference when installing cb; never put it back in, suffered from sluggishness, turned the traction control off and the difference is night and day.
Before you spend the money on a throttle controller, try turning off the traction control and see if that gives you the response you're looking for.

Just added the Idrive, significantly cheaper than throttle commander, and it makes a significant difference in making the jeep feel much more "lively". I am using the auto mode which is a great mix.

I ordered an Idrive will be here tomorrow.Another thing to play with. My wife said with 4 pillar lights two on each side and bumper light bar. She said why so may lights? I said WHY NOT? wait till I put a light bar across the hood hinges and one (maybe behind the grill) can't forget about the ones in the rear. I thing I found a way to remove the reflectors and put some back up lights there.

Look on Quadratec for the Rear Bumper Lights they have some custom made for just that spot where the reflectors are currently
