If you go to 36 and let it drop the TPMS light won't turn on until below 32. One of the main reasons I bought a tazer. I keep my tires between 28-30.

Can you make a phone call with that?
Don't know, is not mine.

But apparently it does allow you to change all sorts of settings, check fuel level and such.
Strange approach imo as other brands use a phone app for that.

The key fobs are stupidly large. We have another FCA product with the same fob features and it is a “reasonably” sized fob.

Left is from our 2019 FCA car and right our 2020 JLU. Now if I could get the left fob programmed for our Jeep that would be great.

I make flow formed double beadlocks.
Pretty sure you can lock and unlock your JL using the Uconnect app.
Used all that crap. I'm saying I want my phone to work just like the fob. So all the functions. Only need your phone in your pocket to start the Jeep. Would be nice to ditch the stupid big fob.

So the AJT is a completely different fob?
It's not just a case for the existing one?
@Roadglider09

You take the guts out of the factory fob and place the guts into the AJT fob. Doing this is easy although some guys say they think it is difficult to get the battery installed into the AJT fob. I myself have no problem installing the battery in an AJT fob.....

Here is a video from AJT regarding how to their fob offering for the JL:

And that is why I wear kilts. The exact opposite situation compared to Yosemite Sam's description of pants.

One of my favorite options that came with our Jeep is the proximity keyless entry.. which means less times I need to manhandle the fob out of my pants. It also likes to extend the physical key randomly, further ensuring that it is difficult to extract from my pocket LOL.

You can solve both issues 1 and 3 with money. Issue 2 I don't find to be an issue for me as I solely use Android Auto which is awesome.

1: Purchase and AJT Key Fob and swap out that hunky junk of crap, costs about 35bucks

2: Purchase a Tazer Lite
Both are terrible answers. Here's why...

1. AJT Key Fob is an ugly piece of crap and you better be ready to get institutionalized if you have a locking gas cap or a hood lock.

2. Tazer bypasses the vehicle's security making it possible for theft

Also apparently the dealer can tell if you had such a device installed even if you unpaired and removed everything:

Don't do it if you have a locking gas cap or a hood lock which uses the same key. They basically want you to shove the mechanical key up yourself so you can grow finger nails and pull it out :headbang: Watch the last part of their installation videos... they down play this magnificent feature
