Good point, I wouldn't want to fly off when using a high power wash or taking it through a car wash.

Yep 2 codes are allowed, but can only change one!

Oh man that is a sweet idea for a location! (the gas door). yea when i go to the gym, beach or go boarding i just leave the keys in there, its nice...especially knowing if and when you eat it...the keys wont stab you in the leg...

i just got mine in the mail today. found it on ebay for 35 bucks. not a bad steal because the one i originally found in the steeda magazine was 100 bucks. anyway, i didnt put it on today because it was raining but definitely will tomorrow. i noticed yall are talking about puttin it in the gas oor and places. why not put it in the stock location? above the door handle. I was lookin a my dads 04 f250 and this thing looks identical to his on his truck. weird right? nobody is gonna know that its not stock. only someone like us would know. most common people that walk by your truck arent gonna tink twice about whether or not they can swipe it from the side of yor truck. seriously people...come on. anyay, i looked at the instructions and it gives you a code that will never change. but you can program your own in there. so basically its like a fallback. for whateer reason you happen to forget your code that you programmed in there you can still reprogram it with the hard code. anyway, ill put up a pic tomorrow of what it looks like.

There's nothing at all wrong with the conventional location. Just be sure to use wax remover before the installation to ensure good adhesion.

You're gonna love it.

You should be able to use it from any location on the truck with no problem at all.
