Places like ACE, and Walmart will need a key to coppy. You might try calling the dealership, I know they can cut keys for newer cars if you give them the vin. However, I don't know if they can do that for older vehicles.
Worst case, just get a new key cylinder w/keys, and swap it in.

And when you have one made, make copies of it. :-)
My wife has a set of keys to both my Jeeps even though she refuses to drive them. Came in handy when I lost my keys on the paintball field. :-) Someone found them later in the day, but stuff I needed was in the Jeep (I own the PB company, not just a player).
thanks guys for the comments i really would like to save the ignition because it was replaced by the last owner b/c it was wornout so its new i will try the dealership in chattanooga and see what they say. if they cannot cut it can i take the door to a locksmith and get it from the door lock? either way when i do get a key im making like 4 copies of it just in case

Just take the jeep to the locksmith. He can't make one from the door but he can make one from your VIN... that's what they told me anyways. I had thought the same thing... and I have heard them making a key from the door... I guess the place I went couldn't.
