Locked keys inside...can't find the spare

How do I proceed? Can the door be unlocked with a slim jim or something?

Call a locksmith, normally cost around 50 - 60 dollars.....
If you don't have a spare, then you could always spend that 50 - 60 dollars at the dealership.
Bring your title & license & they'll cut a key using your vin.

I'd call AAA or a key service and ask. Or your Jeep dealer can cut you a new key. I'm not sure that a slim jim would work? Reason is, I loaned my dad my KJ one time and he got out to ask for directions, left the engine running and closed the door. Well a guy from AAA pried the driver's door open enough to unlock it. Of course in the process the inside of the door was scratched up pretty bad.

Sounds like what I'm going to do...wasn't sure if they could cut another key without the original. Thanks!
