strange request

Ok so like the title says I have a strange request. Early this morning my zj was broken into, luckily nothing was taken,must have been some complete idiots as I had 2 12" subs with a 2000 watt amp all my tools my wildland gear which I had just purchased the day before but the only thing broken was the driver side window and the ignition switch is torn to sh*t. Here's where the strange request comes in (and please if you have the answer please pm me don't post on here) why question is how do I get it started? Hot wire it? And if so how and what's the easiest way. I already have a new one ordered but I work tonight at 7 and my zj is my only transportation. Any help is greatly appreciated
Thanks, Jorge

you won't get it out of park or the steering unlocked without being able to turn the tumbler.

can't really be hotwired.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

What do you have on order, it looks like a new ignition switch and a new lock cylinder would get you back on the road, probably too late now.

Looks like they ripped the tumbler out, so you should be able to use a screwdriver to operate the ignition switch just like your key would have done.
Once the switch moves from lock to ON the shifter and steering lock should work normally.

Why did you have to order it? That is a common part that your local auto parts store ought to have.

You need one of these:

A locksmith SHOULD be able to rekey the ignition.... SHOULD. I had a locksmith rekey all my 97 Taurus doors and ignition once... and that was with a Chip Key. So I'm sure they can do a plain ol key for the Jeep.

Just have to have proof that its yours of course..
