Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Re: May need to buy another key fob 😒

'zero...they cannot be "reprogrammed". Programming the fobs is a one-time deal which is why you want a pristine new one, regardless of source, when you need a replacement or an extra.

Re: Attention JGC Overland or Summit owners....

Re: Wheel change

The difference is that the tires you select must be able to accommodate the narrower rim. Check their specifications...there is usually a range for a given tire for wheel width.
