OP thanks so much for posting this thread. In the 90s I was a Navy FC. I worked on Fire Control radars. Since then I've been enterprise IT...wireless....security....so I know RF well. This just didn't occur to me. I really appreciate it. I hang my keys right next to my door. I ordered this...
I went through BAM... was 833$ shipped. Mopar is Premium twill period. There is no lesser model as Bestop sells... a 100$ cheaper model. It's nice Bestop has a lesser model but it is not worth saving that $100 versus their premium twill.
As with anything mopar just plug in the part # and go for...
While a REAL tick can happen as OP has, many people interpret fuel injector and AC clutch chatter as 'engine ticking'.
You should have heard the loose HLAs ( hydraulic lash adjusters ) on my GT500 when cold. THAT was a tick! It was fine though. Loose supercharged engine good.

Yeah the only remaining vector is tow truck. I'm good with that. Oh...and carjacking. Lol...not for a Gladi tho.
Even if you want to keep an RF fob for proximity START, Threedom has much smaller ones you put all your stuff into. The Mini.
I am not affiliated with them at all...just saw their ad today and checked it out. Saw their key holders mentioning RFID pocket and I'm like OH SHIT.
Yes. You have to physically touch the key to the start button while pressing though....getting the area of the RFID as close as possible or you may have issues.

You'll need the Threedom key holder with RFID pocket. Pics above. Looks like...
