The news of the much smaller DI Labs fob(s) has me near giddy...so tired of hauling this massive stock fob everyday. Hope they have plenty in stock on day one! :LOL:

Apologies if I missed a post, but is there a link to their upcoming store available yet?

@DWS44

Apparently, their online store will be open in a couple of weeks and of course the link to it, when available, will be mentioned on any and all JL/JT forums, groups and such.

I have been privy to seeing pics of the fobs in production.... so so many colors and color combinations, textures and even having say a pic of your JL/JT, your dog, a mountain or whatever on one. They are printing thousands as I type, from what I have been told....

I also have been using one and OH MY....... so tiny....

So, my stock fob looks different. It has 3 buttons. Lock, unlock and a useless panic button that does nothing but get pressed accidentally when I have armloads of suff I am carrying. It seems that size could be reduced by doing away with this annoying feature.

What is the center button? On the red aftermarket fob it has a circle arrow around a grill. Looks like a "turn back over" button if you roll. That would be a great feature I would certainly buy!

@Hound Dog

That X2 with the half circle / button is only on the 4 button fob.
That is the button you push twice to remote start the vehicle, if you have factory remote start.

This aftermarket fob will be available in any button combo you see on a JL or JT stock fob.

I had an extra stock fob with a broken remote start button. I decided since I have proximity on my JL that I would set up one of these DI Labs buttonless fobs using the board from that stock fob...

SO, I easily amputated all the buttons off my board with broken remote button and placed that board in the buttonless, DI Labs Mini fob.

So, I have a fob with no buttons. I have a key stashed on the outside of the JL. I have not used that key in close to 3 years now.... but it is there just in case..

Anyway, there will be many colors, textures, button combos with this aftermarket fob. From what I have heard, it will retail for about $40.

The center button is for those that have remote start. But your idea would be better.

I believe the reason that the DSI Labs fob is shaped like that is that the circuit board in our fobs is that shape and size. So, no, getting rid of the panic button won't make it smaller. But you can disable it by putting a piece of Scotch tape on the contacts for that button.

Here is a side by side pic displaying the 4 button mini with a stock JL/JT Fob.

Funny, the pic really only gives you a faint idea, just how small this aftermarket fob really is... and it is way light in weight... Also, this poor pic, does the mini no justice looks wise or color wise..

Another spy photo... ;)

For those that are wondering how this NEW aftermarket, mini fob addresses the battery... with this brand aftermarket fob, no fooling with the battery to get it in place like with the other brand aftermarket brand..

Just place the battery in the designated cradle and close the fob up....
