I keep mine in this: https://slnt.com/collections/faraday-bags-for-keys/products/flexible-faraday-cage It's more like a bag the fob is attached inside. A box is good for at home, but I saw a video the cops put out that shows thieves catching and amplifying the signal when you're walking away from it like at a mall.I keep my fob's in a faraday box. The hard part is getting my wife to put hers in it. Her Edge isn't on the top stolen car list but it does have passive entry so it's easier to get into it than mine is without it.
I still feel Ram isn't doing enough to prevent theft. It doesn't take much to add a pin or a way for us to verify that a new fob being programmed is authorized by us.
I just had a new fob programmed a couple of weeks ago. I bought an OEM refurbished one with the tailgate release on it because my fob's didn't have that button but the truck had the option. It only took the locksmith a few minutes to program the new fob. It was scary fast but he did say that on the '22's you don't use the OBD2 port to program them anymore. There's someplace else to plug into. But regardless it still only took him a few minutes and he was done.
I don't live in a bad area but I still might put a kill switch in it.
The bag works and pretty cheap compared to larger sizes. It doesn't have to be all wrapped up to block the signal and I carry it bagged and keep it bagged at work and it's protected.
