door LOCKS

When I got my 95 yj awhile ago someone had put on a set of hard-doors. However, the jeep did not come with the door key. I have been reading on the forum about getting the tumblers ground to match the ignition key and that they can do this at a dealership. Do I remove the mechanism from the door and take it in? Or can I just take the whole vehicle in? Estimated cost? It sucks always leaving it unlocked since its my daily driver .

thanx all.

Removing the cylinder from the door is half the battle. After that, it is relatively easy. I just did it this past weekend.
1 Remove cylinder
2 Remove c clip and remove lock pawl
3 Remove centering spring
4 Pull center of cylinder out of housing
5 Insert key
6 Use die grinder to smooth off all tumblers that stick out.
7 Re-insert cylinder in housing and make sure it turns with key.
8.Re-assemble in reverse order.
