Seems to me like the locking column could easy by bypass/eliminated with a grinder or something...

I like the multiple switches idea... and if you put a fuel cutoff somewhere, you can just trip that one in parking lots or at night, so if someone DOES figure out the process, they will only get a bout 1 block away...

well like i said i had a pvc cover that was locked so they'd have to get under that. i mean like it's not to hard to break pvc but it worked all right for me. all though i do like the grinder to remove the locking column that may work in my 95 zj

My best friends got an 2005 Dodge Cummins Dually tow rig and his key started up my '92 YJ, pretty hilarious when it happened. Hmmm... maybe I should try my wife's Durango and Stratus keys?

It probably has something to do with the age of my jeep too, those key cylinders get worn out.

take the lock cylinder out of the second jeep and put the first jeeps key in it and grind and deburr the tumblers that stick out of the cylinder and now you use the first jeeps key for the bolth of the jeeps, i did it to the full doors i bought off of a different jeep for winter time when the half doors come off

I figured it this would be a cheap thing to try, but Wal-Mart and Home-Depot key cutting machines seem to be set up to duplicate both sides at the same time. May need to go to a locksmith. You can tell I'm financially challenged when I'm thinking of things like this as a "cool mod" but hey it would still count right?

My key for my 95 YJ works in my 95 XJ
