So, I found some Bright White door handles on eBay to replace my stock black handles, but I had a question: once I change them, do I have to program them to my keyless entry system? Or do I have to swap the sensors from my old handles into the new ones? Or will they just work right out of the box? Any help appreciated!

Keyless Entry & Proximity Entry are two different things...
As to the Proximity Entry, I guess it depends if the white handles have the sensors and switches built in. I don't believe they're something you can move from one handle to the other. Also, the small end caps have magnets in them for the Proximity system.
IF the white handles have the needed switches & sensors, you can just change out the handles, and no programming required.

Yeah, that was my question. I'm swapping the factory black prox handles with factory white prox handles, but wasn't sure if some kind of programming was necessary. Thanks.

$400+!!!
Did you check with AllMoparParts.com to get their price?

Kevin
They wanted about the same with shipping. However the person I talked to said they are considered an electrical part and couldn't be returned. That sounded fishy to me, but who am I to argue with their policies.

Finally got mine mounted, they make the setup look a lot better as I hate the cheap black plastic ones that were on before. Not to mention they wont stain from waxing either like the black ones did.

yep they work flawlessly and were super simple to swap (probably the easiest mod to add thus far). Just make sure you have a longer T20 torq screwdriver. I wasnt sure I had one and bought one on amazon for 6 bucks (LINK HERE) However I really didnt need it since my harbor freight torx drivers would have worked, they just dont label them as t20 so I wasnt sure. Thanks again for that link!

Looks nice but 400$. That seems a bit crazy.
