Pretty sure I've seen a couple people install the kit in a 13 with no problem.

The remote start is not an available add-on from the factory for the Unlimited Sport as far as I can tell. Can anyone tell me if any of these kits will work with the Sport model?

Thanks!

and the auto transmission.

It will work on a Sport if you have the things mentioned above (power group with keyless entry and auto)

Thanks guys. Just ordered a new Sport S Unlimited from the dealer and they are going to install it for me before I pick it up. It's the one thing I really wish we had on our current car. Definitely a first world problem, but it sucks running outside to start the car 10 minutes before I leave for work in the winter.

Is this really an issue? Do you need to start your Jeep from 1000ft away?
I've never been more than 100ft from mine.

I think of it as....the more range the better. Mostly so that it can be started through the 6th floor window of an office building when the vehicle is sitting in a parking lot in bad weather.

My JKU came with remote start and I thought it was funny at first and I would have never paid to have it installed, but im glad I have it now. Used it a couple times in the morning to defrost windows. Now its just part of my morning. Cant wait to use it in the summer. No more waitting for a/c to kick in.

Yup. Had one installed in my 2010, worked great. You need to follow a procedure to arm it. Park the Jeep, put it in neutral, park brake on, depress the door lock button on the fob, remove key, exit vehicle ensuring doors are locked, once out depress lock button on fob one more time, vehicle will shut down, lights flash, horn honks, fob beeps, and starter will be set. As I parked out of site and at a great distance at work I got the model with 900' range and two way fobs. That way the fob would alert me when my Jeep started and give me a running time count. I could increase the range by holding the fob to my chin and pressing the start button. No kidding!

Looks like the Mopar part number for the 2013's is finally available. Not sure what's different than the 2011-12 part, but whatever it is, it's apparently worth $2 more. Dealer's got mine on order!

Remote Start, Same as Production - 82213625 | Mopar

Just purchased an after-market Compustar remote start from local retailer. So far...fail, system sets off panic alarm, as well overheat and low tire warning lights intermittently display. The seems to require a call to the manufacturer in AK, more to come!

I scared the hell out of some people hanging out by my Jeep the other day in a parking lot. One actually jumped. Wife and I tried hard not to laugh. Money well spent.

Same thing here, my 2013 had the remote start installed and I wanted 4.10's so I went with it, I use it all the time and I love starting it when my mother is near...to see her jump and grab her chest is priceless....Yes I am JUST this immature.

Crap I want one for my manual but that seems to be quite the procedure. Are they all similar to this?

I had a local stereo/alarm shop install a Compustar system on my 2013. So far it has worked perfectly. Once in awhile the little security light on the right side of the dash will be on when I get in. I just touch the brake, Jeep dies and I restart with the key. Happens maybe 10% of the time..

Best part it was only $285. installed. I work at a Power Plant, and before I head to the locker room I look out the window 500' away and I start my Jeep. 10 minutes later I am headed out to a warm or cool Jeep. I also park in a garage, in the morning I just raise the door and push the magic button. Time I pack my lunch and pour a cup of coffee the Jeep is ready to go..
