If it'll be like my '17 f150 key fob and like the one below, getting to the physical key piece is a chore. Only reason I need to access the physical key is if I want to lower my spare tire or change a battery.

Two $70k+ "luxury" vehicle manufacturers vs a $30k "Standard" manufacturer. That's why it's so mundane, it's literally the brand
But with Ford positioning Bronco as its own unique brand, you'd think they could put in a little effort to avoid the generic Ford parts bin for an essential item you will literally carry around with you all day. Porsche and Tesla aren't giving you unique key fobs because unique key fobs are expensive and reflective of what you paid. They're giving you unique key fobs because they want you to bond with your vehicle and thus their brands. "God is in the details."

Ford can just implant a chip into me, that would be easier. Haven't agreed to letting the wife drive it anyways............. :)
So there is a round about way to do this (ask me how I know)....ok, I'll tell you then....

You can get an NFC implant (about the size of a grain of rice) in your hand and then you can hook up any kind of NFC ignition type device and now you can activate your device with just your hand being near whatever reads your hand to activate whatever you are trying to activate....

Can I just get a pair of keys one for the door and one for the motor and wheel lock please. Now I have to trust my skeevy freinds when I ask them to get their junk they left in my car. It also works for lending your vehicle. If they have the option to lock it they will take longer to bring it back.

The new FOB's are so much easier to get the key out. Easy push button and it pulls right out. I was thinking the same thing knowing I'll be locking the console often.

Well that's good, essentially like my wife's Grand Cherokee key, although I have found at times she has separated the fob from the key and carrying them separate which drives me crazy. We won't be locking the console. As a jeep owner, Id rather a thief just open up the console vs pry the oem open. That's why they make lockable storage boxes (under the seat, center console etc.). Even an aftermarket center lockable storage insert is better than the factory one and a lot cheaper to replace if damaged.

Anyone else bothered by the low range manual transmission gear being labeled C instead of L?

Yeah... it's got to be C for Crawl, because it's the 4wd transfer case that has the H and L.

(This way you can say "Crawl Low" or "Crawl High"... also, now that I've said that, the word "crawl" sounds really weird.... Crrrraaaaawwwwl...)

Also, this might be the winner for the furthest off topic a thread has ever become.

Not going to lie, anybody who can’t tell the difference between low range on the transfer case and the manual transmission probably shouldn’t be buying a vehicle such as this.

But I’ve never heard of it referenced to as a crawler gear outside of specially built transmissions where you swap out first with a crawler and you just start from second on the road.

Honestly, my 1983 FJ60 could have been started from third gear.

The distinction isn’t for the person actually using the vehicle, the distinction is for marketing and reference materials.

Just look at this forum. People can’t keep straight the difference between the MIC and Modular hard tops... just imagine the turmoil if there were two different and distinct “L” gearing advertised and discussed... one included on all vehicles and one included only with the manual transmission.
