    You will likely never have to use it, unless you have manual door locks.

    Push button start is standard.

    I'm pretty sure I read that push button start was standard on Sahara and Rubicon.

    That thing (looks like some square, shallow cup holders) at the back of the center console, on the floor... What is it, and is it removable? Can't imagine it would be a pleasure to sit in the middle of the 2nd row seat with that.

    How can that possibly be accurate? Keyless Enter N Go is tied to your key fob. If you have a key fob, you have remote keyless entry.

    I won't pretend to understand that.

    Perhaps this is why there are multiple key fobs available.

    I don't think we've seen a key for a manual locks Sport yet tho...

    Problem with the netting is that it stretches out rather easy. The current JK's netting is almost useless and becomes rather ugly and loose over time if used. Opportunity for the aftermarket.

    Crank package = no power locks, so you may have a fob, but you are opening those locks with a key...

    If there's no power locks, there's no Keyless Enter 'n Go. That would just be push button start.

    Current system uses a seperate rfid key and traditional keyed ignition module for JK's without the power package. It's probably cheaper to make all JL's use the standard keyless entry and go key fob even if you get a model with manual locks to control the push button start than it is to engineer in a sentry key ignition just for base models. So it's all the same fob and computer and ignition and programming, it's just missing the power locks which the programming already handles for when a JL with power locks has its doors off. Hence Keyless Entry and Go SYSTEM, but power locks optional. It might be a bit confusing from a naming convention, but from a Jeep perspective it kinda makes sense....

    Much better than what I have in my Civic. The key can't be folded and so the key and FOB is 5" long. I've had holes poked in my pocket because the key was too big.

    It’s clear they absolutely love the JL...but could you imagine having their job? I’m sure there’s a lot of stuff that happens behind the scenes like any other job, but man it looks like they have fun! :)

    I bought a V6 Mustang as my commuter car for back and forth to work in Philly everyday. It's been a lot of fun, and great on gas. I never dreamed a Wrangler would fit the description of a commuter car for me...at least my definition anyway. :)

    I can't say it enough...the more I learn about JL, the more I am impressed!

    Not necessarily - a Sport Wrangler with no keyless entry currently still has a microchip for immobilizing the vehicle if necessary. They could have a fob-less key that still allows for push-start.

    ^ How did the old Jeep Liberty do with the similar style roof?

    There were lots of complaints about leaks with the Sky Slider roof on the Liberty KK!
