    I've ordered all the parts for my 2014 2500, can't wait!

    I do have a question though for a friend of mine; he just bought a 2021 1500 big Horn that included push to start but no proximity entry. Does anyone know if he can just add the correct handles and door antennas and how much wiring might be needed in the doors (or elsewhere).

    I'm assuming since he has push start already he probably wouldn't need a new RF hub...

    Yeah, I think it would be, but I didn't see any similar thread in that forum so I figured I'd ask here just in case... He may be SOL for now, unless I can convince him to experiment lol

    It looks like its possible. There is a how-to thread on a different forum about 5th gen rams.

    Yes, the 5th gens are pretty easy. He needs the handles (different than the 4th gen handles), the rear antenna behind the license plate, a pair of add-on harnesses for the doors, and an add-on harness for the rear antenna. There’s a detailed how-to thread over on 5thgenrams. I have a bunch of the door/rear antenna harnesses.

    Oh wow, thanks for the responses. I'll take a look at the other forums for that info.

    @Jimmy07, are you selling any of those 5th gen harnesses? I can see if my buddy is interested depending on the cost of all the parts..

    Great write up. Just had a question as I did something similar to my 2016 Ram but just upgraded to a 2018 3500. Does the truck recognize when the key leaves the truck? With my old one I had to have the key to start the truck, but after it was started I didn't need the key. Actually ended up leaving the key at my mother in laws house, driving 4 hours away before realizing it was sitting in her house. Shut it off to get gas and it had to sit there for 2 days until I could get back there and get the key to start it. And going to go through the 145 pages of comments, but does the obd program allow you to alter the auto start to work with a diesel for delay? Thanks

    You can leave the truck with the key and it will stay running. It will chime if the key is out of range. My wife hates it when I leave her in the truck to run into a store cause it chimes the whole time I’m gone with the key.
