One of the nice things about this design is the little bumps on the ‘lock’ button on the remote start version. I can never remember which is which and I often usually just reach into my pocket to lock/unlock. That alone makes this interesting to me.

Yes, agreed...

Also, this fob will be truly appreciated / ranted and raved about, by those JL guys and gals that are say swimmers, divers, runners, bicyclists, fisherman and well, the one's that may not want to carry the fob at all , cause they are in fear of water damage to the fob, for example.

With this fob, when they want, they can easily take the key out of the back of the fob, and hang it on there belt .....and no worries about water damage to the fob's electronics... Can't do that with the stock fob.. 8-)

They will carry just the key on their person and leave the fob itself in the JL, stashed, in an inexpensive Faraday bag like this one.

I like it, definitely looks cooler, but the hidden key sold it for me...OEM key seems to pop out every 20 mins and stab me in the leg.

Pardon my ignorance, if this has already been asked and answered but, do you have to program these fobs, or do you install the guts from your old fob into the new one?
@walweb

You easily, transfer the inner's and key from the stock JL fob. No programming as obviously, your stock fob is already programmed.

See the inner's in this pic, I found on the forum...

These look great. I like that you can chose button and screw colors. Ordered (2) one for me, one for prior wife's new Jeep. Ordering two you get an $8 discount.

Ordered gray, black buttons, red screws to match my Granite Rubi (and custom Benchmade with same color scheme).

Sweet!

Looking forward to no more leg stabs.

Just spent $32.99 on a piece of plastic and shipping, guess it's a Jeep Thing.
Someone said they "saved" $8 if they ordered 2.

Typical sales trick....no, you didnt save $8. They tricked you into spending more money at checkout.

They overpriced the item then took $8 off to get you to spend more. Happens at every store you see "on sale" signs.

These look great. In the two attempts I made to improve the closure my key fobs, the seal did not seem to me to be casually removed, more like destructively removed. Mine appeared to be adhered at one end. It would be nice if a new seal were available from this company. Seals can be made so it is not a deal breaker.

AJT Designs makes fobs like this for a few different vehicles... From what I have seen all their fob offerings in regard to vehicles , run about $35.00. So, with that said I'm not put off lets say by paying $32.99 for the fob, small torx tool and free shipping.
