That would be a problem on my base sport.

Right, I was thinking the same thing (I too have a base Sport)...so they’re going to keep making the version with the lock for the base Sports only? I guess they figured out that removing it from the other trim levels saves enough money even if they have to make a few with it for the base Sports.

It will save millions for sure. But when the folks with upper trims have battery issues it will be another thread of hate towards FCA.

Have you... a JL owner with no keylock on the rear hatch, looked in UConnect settings to see if you can set up the tail gate to say unlock only with 2 fob button pushes or something similar to that.
Take a looksee, I'd be interested... 8-)
I will have a looksee! Thank you for the tip.

Not having manual access to the rear of the vehicle is a Disaster Headline and Mega Lawsuit waiting to pounce.
The money saved now will be nonexistent compared to the hit to reputation and corporate coffers.
Ford paved the way in this regard...

Can't believe they made this subtle change and so many have not even noticed, including myself. The other day my son asked why my 2020 JLUR ordered in Feb (delivered in April) didn't have a tailgate keylock. This was as we were looking at my buddy's 2019 JLUR with the key lock. We all laughed thinking my son was trying to be funny...until we looked at mine as saw it was non-existent. Hopefully will not run into a situation where I wish it was there.

21 base sport has it, but we don't get too many other options so I'll take it.
