I looked into this because I really wanted push button start in my r/t but its no possible with any time of factory setup. The grand cherokee and ram WCM (wireless control module, or the thing you stick your key fob into) are completely different so just buying the button and putting it in the ram will not work. As for 2013 the push button start is completely different, actually the entire CAN bus architecture is different now since new rams use the powernet system.

Basically us ram owners were slapped in the face and told, no you don't need push button start. unless you have a 2013

My wife has the push button start and it's nice but not something I'd pay for. I assume it will likely be in a future vehicle I own but if I had to pay separately for it I'm not sure I'd give you more than $20 for it. Not to mention if I don't have to handle the key occasionally I'm sure I'd end up misplacing them too often.

That's what I'm thinking too!
You can turn it off or in via the EVIC

So do you also long for the good old lever operated transfer case?

I have a '10 murano and I love the fact that I can open doors and push-start the car - all without the fob even leaving my pocket. It would be really nice to have a push-button start in the 12 Ram, even if I have to take it out of my pocket to open the doors.

It's one of those things you just need to leave on and get use to it once you do, you'll see why it's valuable. You're able to see the lines in the parking lot or the curb when parallel parking, etc
