Actually getting into the vehicle is the easy part of a car theft, even one with an alarm system. The hard part is always getting it to start.

2008 Jeep Liberty KK W/Selec Trac II, ADL Skid Plate Group, 245/70/16 All Terrain Destinations, VisionX LED Floodlights. It's a real jeep. Don't like it? Wait let me check. Yep, still a real jeep.

With my truck i only had 1 key.. I cut another but didn't know about chip. So it opened the door but didn't start it. But that's actually a good key to have stowed on outside of vehicle. Think about it. If you accident lock yourself out (key in ignition ) you just get your spare key, but if somebody looks, at least they can't steal your ride!

Yea you are right, I'm thinking I'm just going to get another key cut just to open the door. That's the only reason I would need the second key, if I locked my keys in the car. Or If something happens to the keys that start my car at some point but if that ever happens ill handle buying the programmed key for $210 then.

Many locksmiths now have the factory scanners and program a factory key for less.

I have an aftermarket remote start in my 08 Liberty, what I did is get a cheap unchipped key made and leave 1 remote for the remote starter hidden the arm rest storage.If you start your jeepo with the remote starter then put the unchipped key in the on position, the truck will keep on running as if it was a chipped key.Don t tell anyone but my unchipped key is duck taped on the back side of my rear license plate

Spare key

To clarify, here is what I did. I had a plain Jane second key cut. Tell them you want them to cut it from a brass blank. I put a little grease on it and hid it under my car with a twisty-tie. In the bottom of my center console, under all the "stuff", is my third spare (factory original) electronic key (button side down). When you lock your keys in the car away from home, unlock the door and start the car with the electronic key, and re-hide the hide-a-key. But, do not hide the key while in your driveway where the neighbors can watch you.
