I'm probaly go a make a harness with the wires so it's nice And clean
i used 1/4 watt resistors, but 1/8 or 1/2 watt should be fine as well. i just zip-tied the relay and the heat-shrunk little resistor pack into the wiring harness and hid all the modules and wires up in the dash well.

One quick question. Did you cut the blank that came with the EC002-FO version fob, or did you find another flip out style jeep key to then cut? Seems kind of skinny and might not work.

i had regular non-chip key copy made at Walmart for like $10 and then cut it up with a Dremel to make a custom blade for the FO style fob.

a standard Chrysler style blank that has worked with most Jeep/Dodge/Chrysler cars for the past 15 years will be available at any place that makes keys. it cuts up like butter with a Dremel metal cut-off wheel, or you could even just use a hacksaw and a file pretty easily.

i also still had to Dremel out the inside edges of the FO fob housing just a bit in order for the actual keyed portion to fold down into it. my particular keyed section had just one "bump" that was nearly the full width of the blank which prevented it from folding in otherwise.
