Any recommendations for the jumper and obd2 adapter. Many say amazon. Any brands better than others.
Thanks

I have a Rubicon July 2019 build date. Checked my wire harnesses tonight hoping I already had the ones I needed. Nope. Have to order the correct ones.

Thanks again to everyone that has contributed to this topic.

BAM replied saying that the handles, and BSM harnesses are back ordered until July 15th. I received the door handle caps already.

Are you sure it's the full order? I placed the full order 2 weeks ago, got the shipping notification which led me to believe they shipped all 6 parts the next day. Got the delivery and it was only the 2 caps. the harnesses and handles were backordered (with an ETA of July 15th, 2 weeks ago)

This world is soon going to be full of Jeeps that go clunk when you touch the handle. Good work everyone, especially the pioneers who first did it, got the Sport S to work, and the JScan solution.

IDK? I’ll find out in a few days. I placed another order with Thunder CDJR for the parts they said were back ordered, between them I hope to get this done. If I get everything I ordered I’ll have nearly everything for two installs.

Has anyone else tried looking at pick-a-part and junkyards for sources of cheap handles and wiring harnesses?

I got the same setup and I just did it 5 minutes ago and it works like a charm! Thank you so much for the tutorial everyone involved! I'm so happy I don't have to deal with the dealership cuz they're all buttholes.

Question:

Why in @Etch's instructions are we enabling the rear right and left doors when they lack proximity locks?

I'm fine to follow orders blindly here, and it's just a curiosity thing, but does anyone have an idea why this is the case?

Thanks.

Great question, i have a 2 door. Thinking i should only check the front doors. Does that sound right ?

My understanding is that it doesn’t matter. It neither helps nor hurts the operation.
