Not 100% sure, thought I read that somewhere. Even if not, pushing a button inside my pocket instead of a button on the door handle isn't worth the money required to get the keyless entry, at least for me.
On my current vehicle, the key has to be near me.

That's what our JLUR is going to look like, except it will be red. Mono color fenders + optional wheels + steel bumpers (LED lights included) + black leather seats.

I ordered it, because I carry a ginormous purse and the keys always fall to the bottom of it. So, it’s a convenience issue for me. I would like keyless entry for my house because once I get home, I still have to dig to find them. :idea:
Try one of these, no key required. You can even unlock it from your car via smartphone.

Is it just me, or does it seem like everyone is buying a Granite Rubicon?

I mean, don’t get me wrong. It’s a sharp looking vehicle. But is there any love for the White Jeep? Especially any Sahara models. It doesn’t have to be Rubicon or nothing.
Granite looks amazing. The only thing against it per say is that it may show trail marks more than silver or white.

In regards to the keyless entry, I have it on two cars that I just walk up to and pull the door handle and start the car and never touch or look at the key fob. One of them locks itself when I walk away from it, the other I have to press a button on the door handle (like the JL I think).

I think it's worth it.

Just like tidy-whities...



(per se...sorry for the grammar police, but a bunch of posters have done this and it's crawling under my skin. Or is it rock crawling?)

That is incorrect. It is proximity keyless entry, meaning that the key can remain in your pocket and or purse. All you have to do is touch the sensor and it will unlock. You do not have to push the button to unlock unless you want to

After seeing all of the pics of the LED lights, I am canceling my first order and re-ordering--adding the LED group and leather interior.

What are people's thoughts on Keyless entry? I want to be sure this order is my final order lol.
Go with the proximity key less entry!

I see Keyless Entry as pointless. I unlock my door(s) with my fob still in my pocket. If I have to put the fob next to the handle for it to unlock, that is more to do than without. I am glad it wasn't an option when I ordered, because I probably would have got it and wasted that money.
That's not how it works. Being in your pocket (or backpack, purse, whatever so long as it is in reasonable proximity) is all that is needed.

I don't have first hand experience with the JL, obviously, but on my (now 13 year old) Acura there is no "button" to push on the door handle - you just grab the handle to open it. I have to do that *anyway* - I just walk up to the car, grab the door handle, the doors (I set mine to unlock all doors vs just driver) unlock, the headlights, interior lights and rocker puddle lights come on and I open the door and get in. You don't want it, that's fine of course, but it works quite differently than you've been describing it.

Go with the Keyless Entry. I wish the techno wizards could come up with options either somewhat smaller to non existent, i.e. a cell phone link (With backup key) would be great. That said, as one of the gals said, it is easy to find in a purse or bag. For me, carrying a clipped knife in the same pocket, it's handy not to have to remove the knife to get to the key.

I’m not a pavement princess but I did get the dealer to install the running boards that come on the Sahara. They are much nicer than the ones that came on the JK and with 6 bolts I can take them off when I go to a state with rocks. They definitely keep your doors from getting dinged up. They are great to stand on when riding on the beach and are the only way to get my 80 year old mother in law into the jeep....

Very nice looking jeep. Can you please tell me how you went about getting those side steps? I know they are standard on the Sahara and optional for the Sport from the factory but it sounded like you may have ordered them through Mopar separately. They look nice and I’d like to put them on my ordered Rubicon but I do not see anything in the catalog matching those. I just see the tube steps. Thank you!

Ok, I don't have it. Others have described the button on the door handle as a button you had to push, maybe it is just a sensor for the fob.

I think I figured out my opinion on the upgraded wheels. I like them, but to me they don't look as bold, they are a bit more fancy looking to me.
Interesting. I've always thought the upgraded Rubicon wheels looked more rugged and the standard ones looked more upscale/fancy.

The whole conversation will be moot once they offer the standard Rubi wheels in graphite powder coat like on the Hella Yella one at the Auto show. Then they will become THE ONLY CHOICE for the thinking Jeeper...(cue mic drop). Anyone who disagrees is a communist tree-hugging Starbucks-loving Walmart-over-Target Subaru-driving vegan. Believe me...
