I've never been able to change options on a car once ordered.

I would say get it, considering how little cost it really is. However it can be added afterwards if you didn't get it and just really want it.

Should I add remote proximity keyless entry??

Ordered a 2021 JLU Sahara....have time to add options if I want.

What are owners thoughts on remote proximity keyless entry? Should I add it? My current vehicle has it and I do use it, but I added lots of options to my JLU and figured I needed to draw the line somewhere.

Would appreciate any comments.

Thanks
1.) It is expensive
2.) But I like it
3.) So just do it

I liked it while it worked. Like all FCA electronics it's garbage as the driver door no longer works with keyless entry. Yea there is a warranty, but what about when it's over?

Have you taken the doors off? If so, check for bent pins in the body side of the door connector, it’s an all to common problem. That is one area where FCA could have done a better job.

I was told there are several stages once the order is placed.....and apparently I am still in a stage to add or make a changes.....dealer said factory is saying minimum 3 month wait right now too. 👎🏻

Save your money, I had it on my Ram truck. I hated it, you really have to worry about hacking the locks. I love my new jeep does not have it, just a wireless keypad and start.

I miss my proximity locks from my WK2.

get them. Get LED lights, cold weather group, and tow package.

This.. going through the retro myself on proximity.. although no cold or tow package and wish I had the cold at least.

Is there a thread on the forums with info about this? Want to do the upgrade, but haven't found any info yet.
Thx

I had keyless entry on my kl, it's nice but I feel like it's more of a grocery getter feature. It's definitely convenient.
However, there's belief that it does make the vehicle more easily stolen so store your fobs securely or garage that badboy.

That is exactly the times I'm looking for the Proximity feature.. when I'm loading things up and have no hands to dig into a pocket.
