Proud new JK owner...Console keys?

Drove her home last night. Not going to lie...I am in love. Do the JKs come with console keys?? The salesman at the dealership said they don't, but I am a little upset because mine is a soft top and if I ever have to put something of minor value (i.e., sunglasses etc) in there, I'd like for it to be locked. Checked the glove compartment and center console...nothing. How can I get those?

Should just be your ignition key for your glovebox and console.

You're not an idiot, the locks on the console and glove box just suck. I'll put my key in and it won't move in any direction sometimes.

I have owned mine for two weeks. In that time I have had a towel and now the latest auxiliary cable for my phone stolen. I put the value of a used towel at about $1.00 and the cable at about $2.00! Dont leave valuable stuff in the Jeep! Leave the doors unlocked so the thief wont cut the top. Welcome!

Don't apply any pressure when trying to lock/unlock the console. Just turn.

Here's what you MUST do:

First, obtain some aerospace lubricant, such as Tribolube. Then apply no more than a 647 micron drop and no less than 583 micron drop to each device. (console lock, glove box lock, key, ignition switch).

Glove box: Using a inch-pound torque wrench attached to your key, take a deep breath and while exhaling VERY slowly, apply 7.35 in-pd pressure in the appropriate direction to lock/unlock.

Center Console: This process is slightly different. Again, using a inch-pound torque wrench attached to your key, this time you need to inhale VERY slowly and apply 6.87 in-pd pressure in the appropriate direction to lock/unlock (this must be done while inhaling).

It is essential that the breathing and application of pressure are done in the proper order for each device. If not, you'll need to cycle the ignition switch 17 times within a 8 second interval to reset the Glove Box or cycle the ignition switch 12 times within a 7 second interval to reset the Center Console.

Good Luck.

Lol my crew is looking at me funny now wondering why I'm laughing staring at my phone.


But yea OP the console locks on ALL jeeps to include my tj btw just kinda suck. You just gotta be light with the key, maybe wiggle it a bit.

Congrats on your new Jeep. And welcome to the community.

You guys are just hilarious. Got it figured out. I was applying 648 micron drop. Will definitely leave doors unlocked. Hopefully I won't have to park my car in some shady/sketchy areas, haha.

Give it time. Your new jeep will warp your mind too.

X2 on leaving it unlocked. I've had my side window cut with a knife (loser's). But if you own a soft top. Get used to the idea that people are human and to be so you must error. And locks are only there to keep an honest man honest.

I don't lock either. If you do, they'll just break your console/glove box costing you much more than what they would take. leave things open or invest in an underseat lock box, or some sort of locking storage in the back.

I hate to be the black sheep here but I lock mine.
Hard top, soft top... if' I go in to "town" I lock my Jeep. Well, the big towns anyway.

Should some criminal element decide to slice my top I have a different approach.
I carry a LOW $50 deductible on my comprehensive insurance. So, if they slice my top to steal whatever happens to be within the Jeep, it costs only that to replace anything and everything.

Comp claims don't affect your insurance rates (unless you commit fraud or over use, then you may have a problem) and for me the peace of mind knowing that when the agent asks "was it locked?" I can say "you betcha!"

Locks won't keep anyone out (unless it's YOU, and it's 34 degrees, starting to rain, you have a grocery cart full and you locked your keys inside with the hard top on - ask me how I know this) but they do create enough of a delay that it might slow down the impulse thief and keep him from stealing whatever he can get his hands on in a hurry.

Lock the doors, but remove the side flaps when the weather is good. Thieves will pass you by every time because they won't think anything of value is in there (unless you're foolish enough to leave it in the open, or they are a really desperate crackhead).

And if you do get the foolish crackhead, you will be able to tell your agent that the doors were locked.

If you are a "gun toter" like me, and you have to get out and go into a place that don't allow you to TOTE your gun, having a safe place to lock it away is always nice. I don't trust the glove box or the center console enough even if they are locked. I recommend an underseat bolt-in safe. Even if you don't tote a gun and need a locker to put it in, these things would take a cutter torch and a pry bar to remove and a stick of dynamite to open!

Be careful out there...there are a LOT of "different" lunatics!
