Thanks for the advice.
I have a Viper system in my auto TJ. You'll want a system that reduntant safeties to ensure the remote start can't engage when the vehicle is in gear. There is usually a little dance you need to do when exiting the vehicle to ensure that it is in neutral or the starter will not crank. Some cheaper systems may forgo these safety precautions which is not what you want at all.
I installed my system myself and it wasn't too bad. I don't know what installing a non-Mopar system would do to your warranty, but you can't beat the convenience!
