JKUR delivered 10/24, key fob arrived today! It is a bit silly, however, that the Jeep key won't actually fit on it without the use of another key ring! Has anyone considered drilling out the hole just a millimeter or so to make it slide on? It's only plastic, after all...

2012 JK picked up 10/24, key fob came Wednesday. Put Jeep key on without use of another key ring. Must be a larger key for 2013. Thanks Jeep.

I got a key chain. I didn't even get an owner's manual. I "discovered" later that in order to obtain an actual owner's manual I had to contact Jeep directly.

What the heck? Seriously? You didn't get an owners manual with your Jeep?

I call BS. Only 2013 Jeep owners get them. And there is no way the key fob fits on the key without an extra ring.

wow this thread was pissing me off! its NOT a key fob unless it does something. A key fob is a type of security token: a small hardware device with built-in authentication mechanisms. Just as the keys held on an ordinary real-world key chain or fob control access to the owner's home or car, the mechanisms in the key fob control access to network services and information. Many people have them for building access etc ...

Anyway, after a quick google i found that key fob can also just be a boring key chain. I feel better about this thread now.

FOB can also be interpreted as a Forward Operating Base. Just saying...

I like your rant a lot! You had a great argument with yourself!

I also thought a fob was a remote,, then was quickly corrected by the ever powerful and all knowing wife. Fob it is!

Uh Sorry...no BS. And key fits fine. Yes...it is a 2012. Mine probably is a different key than yours. Wasn't thinking about a FOB key. You are so kind.

Strange. I've owned both a 2012 and my current 2013, and they both have the same style key. Neither fit the key chain I received... please post a pic so I can see where the difference is.

What is key fob? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary


A fob, or more commonly called a key fob, is a small security hardware device with built-in authentication used to control and secure access to network services and data. The key fob displays a randomly generated access code, which changes periodically, usually every 30 to 60 seconds. A user first authenticates themselves on the key fob with a personal identification number (PIN), followed by the current code displayed on the device.

Key fob is also a word used to describe a key chain and several other similar items and devices. The word fob is believed to have originated from watch fobs, which existed as early as 1888. The fob refers to an ornament attached to a pocket-watch chain. Key chains, car starters, garage door openers, and keyless entry devices on hotel room doors are also called fobs.
