Anyone else a little salty about not being able to order it day one? Not anything I can do. My JL rolled through the line yesterday.

Would have been nice considering the key fob is so big.

I was peved until I saw the price. Now I'm glad I saved the 500 bucks. I've never had it before, so I won't miss it. It would have been nice, though. I'll put the 500 bucks toward 35's.

I couldn't wait. I have been accused of impatience in the past...

If I get a wild hair and order the diesel down the line, I will add it. I can live without it for now.

I'm not sure why they couldn't add it. It is all electronic, so I'm guessing it can simply be programmed. The question for me, if the dealer finds out it can be added, is would I drop 500 bucks on it? Not sure I would.

I currently have a 2010 Toyota RAV4 Limited model that has the proximity feature. On the RAV4, the button the the door handle locks all the doors when you press it. To unlock the doors, without taking the key out of your pocket, all you need to do is put your hand behind the door handle and it automatically unlocks the door for you. You have to be sure when locking the door by pressing the button on the door handle to not place your hand behind the door handle, otherwise you may unlock the door when you are trying to lock them. Not sure if the jeep proximity feature will work the same, but it might.

Just like the one that came standard on my sub-$20,000 2015 Honda Fit EX. I love it.

Jeep is committing highway robbery for charging anything for it, much less as much as they are.

I never lock my jeep anyway. No sense in locking it when it either has a soft top or is topless. Now if someone had proximity unlocking for an aftermarket locked storage for the jeep, then ??

Yeah, I don't lock it with the soft top or topless, either. But, I've got the hard top on all winter long, so it gets locked then.

I went back and modified my order to get it. Agreed it should have been included but after having it in several of our previous cars I really like having that convenience.

Typically this is an option, but having it on other vehicles, very convenient and definitely getting it.

I will get a long range remote start put on our jeep when it comes in and for another $70 they will add the proximity feature to it.
