I'll film it for you ZenMan. I suspect it will get hit with a .260 Sierra Varminter hollow point. Hopefully the moment of impact will record.
It'll be an easy shot.

Hate saying this, but it's an 8 year old vehicle. 15K for a 2dr, 18K for a Rubicon. 24K? that could probably buy a new 2015 problem free non-rubicon 2 door.

Yes, you need to reprogram them. Follow the directions in the manual. An unprogrammed key will start the jeep (as you describe) then it shuts off after a second or so. Sometimes it's a bit...

I did one (actually a few). Why? I didn't want to wait 3 days for one via UPS. Besides, I have a lot of stainless steel and a plasma cutter - so I need to justify that purchase. I cut one out of...

When did you buy it? Is it within the window of 3yrs/36,000 miles bumper to bumper? Hell they ought to cover it as there's a recall on older JK tranny lines (like my '08) and on the newer ones. ...
