    My 2017 Raptor I was able go into my truck settings and turn on Secure Idle. This will not let the truck go into gear without the key fob in the truck. I wish I could do that on my Jeep.

    that's a great feature, I wonder if all Fords have them? it would be a great option for FCA to implement, although they seem to lag behind in electrical forethought .

    That's cool and all, but who'd wanna steal a Ford? 😎

    This happened to me with a Yukon I had. I sold it to some wholesale guy and when he sent his employees to go pick up the Yukon, they mistakenly got into my neighbors Tahoe. The key open the door and started up the engine but it would die after a few seconds later. They realize the car still had tons of personal items in it, they got out and realized they were in the wrong truck.

    Or you can set the fob down outside, but close enough to start it, and if you forget that it's sitting outside, drive off and loose the key😭
    I know someone that happened to.

    I remember Ford had a key problem with Mustang fox bodies being able to use on other Mustangs.

    My dad had a 78 Dodge truck and an 89 Plymouth Voyager. He could use either key for either vehicle.

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.
