I'm afraid to order those keys and not be able to find someone to cut it. I bought some Suzuki keys off Ebay and no one in town will cut them for me. Cvs only cuts they're own keys because they use the computerized cutter and ace hardware won't cut anything they didn't sell you for"liability". Just in case it was something they weren't supposed to copy. Everyone had an excuse.

That's strange, my local Ace hardware copied my key to a key I bought off eBay for a couple bucks.

Was it a custom key or a plain key? I had the custom Suzuki gsxr keys. Still have them uncut. In the next town over there's a locksmith I'm going to eventually go there and try.

Any recommendations for my 2010 WK? About 75% of my driving is town or highway but I prefer the more aggressive look.
You should def. go look at the wheel and tire combo thread. I'm huge fan of the bfg mt. I had them on my zj but I'm still saving up for my wk lift.

This is the key I had cut. Definitely try a locksmith, 99% sure they'll do it

I actually got mine cut for free at Ace because the guy didn't believe I could program it myself. Basically told my girlfriend I was an idiot and gave her it for free. Well it took me a whole 30 seconds to get the key working....

I just went to the local locksmith. $5. He also said he wouldn't be liable for it since he didn't sell it, but he cut it.

I got the same response today. The issue I have now is the flip key shells only fit the original remote transmitter not the new replacement boards with the battery holder in the lower case, it needs to be the units with the battery holder on the circuit board.

Anyone use this to lift their Jeep? I know nothing about Jeeps so bare with me. $150 for a 2in. seems very cheap.
