Sorry for the double post. I see them for 179.00 on 4 wheelparts. Is this a complete kit or are they different some how. I know absolutely nothing about lighting. I have read two different headlight shoot out threads and am lost now more than before. I read one that said they have a gen2 that is out now and better than the first?

You can find the key shells on ebay, but on another forum some people have been having issues with the chip not working. I have a 2010 Rubicon and after swapping the guts out it works great. Be careful where you get it cut though, I recommend a dealer or a locksmith since some people have had their keys cut wrong by people at stores such as Ace, Wal-Mart, and etc. I had mine cut at the dealer and it starts the Jeep but I can not unlock the door with it. Looking at the key I see that the machine missed a part while cutting it. Also when buying the switchblade key on ebay be sure to see where it is coming from, there is a seller in the U.S. who charges a bit more but your key will be at your house in a week and there is another from Asia who sells them for cheaper but it can take 10-20 days for your key to arrive.

Any questions just send me a PM

Ps. I'm very suspicious of this mod. I took my key apart and don't see a way to "convert" the factory key. Sure... Maybe use a WV key, have it programmed, and then keyed to the jeep... But converted? How?!

Look a few posts up, I replied to a few other people with the same question. The keys are on ebay. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

35" KM2s for $314 each at DT. They put tire-shine on the tires before I noticed. Made it a total ***** to remove the spare with out getting it all over me to install the third brake light.

No worries, the ones I bought are the gen2's the earlier ones do not work as good as these. The ones on 4wheel parts are the gen ones for 179. The light output on the gen twos are much farther and and wider than the gen ones!!! I'm extremely happy with gen twos.

I'm confident UPS could find a way to damage a M103 Tank, so a front bumper should be easy for them.
