Unhappy Programming spare key faubs

When I bought my 2012 JGC Laredo a few months ago, the dealership only gave me one key faub. It has a key less push-to-start feature, and now I'm stuck with having to order spare key faubs. I know the dealership charges a TON for purchasing and programming key faubs, so I'm trying to order them online and do it myself. I read that you have to have two spare faubs in order to program additional faubs... is this true? Has anyone had experience with purchasing and programming spare key faubs that could give me a little advice/direction???

Re: Programming spare key faubs

Buying FOBs online is iffy, some work and some don't. As for programming, since you only have one FOB, you'll need to have the dealer or someone with the software to program it. That being said, call around as different dealers have been known to xhargw different prices, if any at all.

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.
