    That's what I am curious about, if the system complains that it doesn't register the other handles. I have to stuff the back with kid junk all the time, so I open the trunk door first pretty much every time. Sufficient for me for my needs.

    I bought a version of this and the power lock modules and just waiting for it all to come in. I like this option as it will be similar to my corvette.

    When does it arrive? Can you let us know if it worked? And do you have a JL WITH FACTORY alarm?

    Said up to 4 weeks in the auction as it’s coming from China. I have manual doors with nothing. I am following another thread adding the factory door lock modules and controlling them with the aftermarket system.
    I got the driver module, relay and jumpers in yesterday, waiting on the passenger module and the aftermarket system now. I’m only going to be using the proximity locks part of this system. I’m not wiring in all the other features.
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Passive-Keyless-Entry-Ignition-Start-Stop-Button-Mobile-APP-Central-Lock-Unlock/172975988797?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    Would really love to do the factory version but while I’m waiting on either me or someone else to crack that nut I’ll at least have this version. The only drawback to this way is having two massive key fobs in your pocket. Once I get everything working I’m going to take a factory key and one of the aftermarket fobs apart to see if I can somehow reduce size/combine them.

    Edit, looks like it’s cheaper straight from their website but you don’t have eBay protection. I guess you could make offer of $150 on the auction I just didn’t want to wait. But in looking at that link it looks like you have to buy min of 5.

    Wait, is that it. I need to know the ending. If everyone calls maybe FCA will listen. I’m currently deployed. I will call in October time frame.

    Sounds great not sure that I’ll be going the work as I’m in the diesel field and it’s under warranty but for programming and stuff I’m sure I could hook you up

    Just FYI, I ran into a similar situation with adding the MOPAR Factory LED Kit to my JL Unlimited Rubicon. THye had to add the Sales Code to my VIN. We accomplished it however, by having the Dealer call the Regional FCA office, who was able to add the Sales Code to my VIN (not available in the Dealer’s Sales Code list), and then had the dealer do a reconfigure on the BCM (flash). Sounds like that may be the ticket for this solution. As long as you know the Sales Code.
