Anyone know what happens if I enable "Off Road Capable" with JScan what would happen? I've asked several places with no answers, but surely someone has enabled that with Alfa even.

It increases articulation by 25% and enables the front locker and sway bar disconnect.

Just kidding, but you made me curious so I went on the same wild google goose (goosle?) chase you probably went on.

My best guess is that it has to do with the off-road/trail camera on the Wrangler and Gladiator, and nothing to do with our trucks. Thus, what happens? My guess: nothing.

You forgot to include that it raises the truck 5.5 inches and expands the tires out to 35s.

Well damn. I was hoping it enabled some crap in the EVIC. However this is the most conversation I've seen on the topic, so I appreciate all the input.

Dang, I thought I had that in the ole sig. Its a '23 2500 cummins
Does that have UC5? The folks on this form have 1500s so I'm not 100% for you, but for us on 2022+ we can enable Off-road Pages Present to get them on the evic. It does work on the radio but if the truck is connected to Ram it zaps it as they are trying to charge people for it (still shows on the evic).
If it's uc4 I believe there are particular firmware versions required to enable it in addition to setting that.

It is UC5, 8" I am using JScan so I don't see off road pages, just off road capable. My truck was born free of communication from Ram. Its a 2023 big horn, if that matters.

This is what you would need to set, if JScan doesn't show it you would need Alfaobd, which you should probably get anyways.

For offroad pages
VehConfig 5-Off-Road Pages Present - Yes

For performance pages (some sensors may not show on a Big Horn.
VehConfig 1-Performance Pages Present - Yes

If your truck is really free of communication those pages will both stick, else it will get zapped from the radio but show on the evic.

Your radio is an 8.4 non-navigation radio, and it’s not capable of displaying off-road pages anyway.
The off-road capable setting is used on a heavy duty ram for the off road front camera when equipped with surround view. It is used in conjunction with some other settings to display the yellow dynamic tire track gridlines when the front camera image is pulled up.

Thanks for chiming in @Jimmy07 that puts that to bed.
