I have one key for both full doors, tailgate, and ignition. Bought a set of half doors, so I pulled the cylinders out of the them and had the cylinders changed to match my key. Now one key works for all 5 locks. Cost, 20 bucks at the local locksmith, and I don't have to worry about something not fitting right. I've already got too many other keys on my ring, keeping the number as low as possible was a plus for me.

Take your key in and get the tailgate cylinder made to match your ignition (and your doors if you can/want to as well).


You have to start somewhere to get to the middle of nowhere.

I should probably reword my last post, I don't have locks on my doors. I had to change my ignition when I got the jeep since it didn't require a key to start it. so now the tailgate and the ignition don't match. I only have two keys on my keychain so I am fine with another key but the locksmith wanted $70 to make one. I am fine with either a new key or I can just figure out how to get my cylinder apart so I can rekey it. I just don't care so much to pay $50 for 3 cylinders when I only have a spot for 1, but I do appreciate the responces.

I got 2006 Wrangler. Tailgate lock won't turn. Right key, removed cylinder and all tumblers are aligned (down) but cannot turn. It's clean and bathed in WD40. But nothing. Any ideas?

While you have the cylinder out drop it by a locksmith to see whats up with it.
