I bought a key on Amazon and it looks identical to the stock 2014 JKU key for $20.
I haven't found a clear and clean "How To," to program the key on the internet. Called a local key shop that I think is a good one and was told that the key needs to be cut and program, Cost $5 and $60 for the job. But no guaranty with the Amazon key. No surprise there... some just don't work, they say.
The shop does supply a Jeep JKU key guaranteed for $120 and then $65 for cut and programing.
Question: Does anyone have instructions to program a Jeep JKUR 2014 key?
I would like to give it a try since I have the Amazon one already and I will report back to ROF in order for you to do the same.
An extra "hid-a-key is always a good thing. On a Jeep run on the Utah BDR one of our experienced guys accidentally touched the locking button shutting the door and was locked out. We were a long ways from any town. Luckily one of us had a Hex tool that fit the door hinge. We took the door off and got in. I'm looking to put my extra key in a hidden place for just such an incident.
Oh, and led a Jeep run up to Crystal Peak in the Diamond Mountains the other day. (north of Reno Nevada just west of Frenchman Lake) Took the TJ as my wife doesn't want to scratch up the pretty JKUR.
This is the peak, a pure quarts outcrop at the top of the Diamond Mountains.
The view is looking towards Sierra Valley, where the wagon trains came through in he 1800's after passing through Beckworth Pass heading to California. The wagon road goes left to right just beyond the green tree highlands. The town of Truckee and Lake Tahoe lie beyond the distant ridge. The gold fields of the 49er era are to the west, right of view.
A view of Frenchman Lake looking west, note this is the most eastern part of the Sierra Nevada Range, the eastern flank of these mountains drop into the Great Basin. Lots of the roads on this mountain are in good shape thanks to the logging industry at the turn of the century. The white looking road is crushed quarts crystals from Crystal Peak that they used to gravel the roads.
