Does anyone sell a full set of lock cylinders for our CJs?

I'd like to get replacement cylinders for my ingnition, doors and hard top so they all use the same key. I've ordered replacement door locks from Morris and found them lacking. Is there something I should be looking for so I can get them all?

Thanks in advance.

I would like to know as well. I would be happy with just the doors. OEM was pretty cheesy, I would like something better. (mine are broken)

Out of curiosity,what makes the aftermarket sets lacking? are they thin and sloppy or not fit right? Just wanting to know.

They are made in China is my guess. I went to some of the bigger chain locations to make duplicate keys and they have to be specially made by a locksmith. I'm guessing that they're some sort of GM setup, but would like confirmation.

When I had my CJ7 with a hardtop I used garage door handles. They make many different designs, but the ones I found were identical to OEM. I used both the door handles and the liftgate t handle. The best part is they cost $5.99 each at True Value hardware. Here is an example:

I ordered a set from Rock Auto. They were pretty decent and felt stock.
