Lost my only key

As the title says, I lost my only key and fob. What are my options? Jeep is locked, and no the keys aren't inside. How much am I looking to spend? The thing that's driving me crazy is that I know my key is here somewhere, I didn't go anywhere between the time I last had it and when I realized it was missing, but I looked everywhere.

I FOUND IT!!!! It was on the edge of the trunk (back window glass side) of my other car. The trunk had to be open to see it. I must've searched INSIDE of the trunk 5 times today.

Glad you found it. I would like to know what would a person do if this happened? My guess the dealer could use the VIN and make one maybe?

Your first stop tomorrow will be to get a spare made, right?

This is what I would do. Run down to a local dealer and get the key code and immobilizer pin code. Next I would convert the key code into bitting. Then I would dial in the bitting on the cam of my key clippers and punch out a working key. Next I would use the DRB3 and the immobilizer pin code to program the key to my jeep

Going to the dealer is for NooBs!!!
