    Add remote start to your auto JK for $99

    Disclaimer...I have nothing to do with the seller, etc. This is just for those guys looking for an inexpensive solution to that they don't freeze in the morning.

    Living in FL I'm good. But if you come across a good power lock product in your travels, I'll be all over that.

    A few members on another forum have had success with it.

    Unfortunately this is somewhat right. Being a car install guy myself for Futureshop in Edmonton, there is a harness that is plug and play. The worst part of it is is that it's not gonna cost you $99. First you need the harness (about $50 cdn) then you need a bypass (that little black box he has anywhere between $100-150) and then it has to be programmed which in most shops they charge you $50. After that if you don't buy the actual remote starter the range of your key fob is about 30ft. My remote starter has about a 5000ft range. Doesn't really seem that worth it?? Lol

    Sorry, but this is not correct.

    #1, your remote starter doesn't have a 5000ft range, not a chance. Maybe if you were in a field in Kansas, you can reach 1000', and even that I wouldn't bet on it (compustar has some of the best ranges that I have seen, and it isn't close to 5000'.)

    #2 The OEM key with a good battery will do AT LEAST a football field if not obstructed. I have remote started my Jeep from the top of a building in Manhattan (66th floor with the OEM key.)

    #3 The kit posted is all you need. The programming is done by you. The kit comes with the wiring and the black box, so Im not sure what you are talking about.

    The Compustar pro is actually what I have and yes on a clear day it will do 5000ft (or cloudy your choice) and realistically I highly doubt from the 66th floor you can even unlock your vehicle. But that's cool I don't do it every day or anything and yes programming is done by you but you need to put firmware on the bypass from a site that requires you to have a paid login membership. (Highly unlikely that most have this) and if something happens to go wrong? Which it does from time to time we charge more to "undo" things than to do it right in the first place. With that said I'm not trying to start an argument I just think getting it done right the first time is better than winging it.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
