I have a grey sentry key with skim. I got a couple new keys cut that were just brass to open the doors and rear gate if i was locked out, one is in my wallet and another is tie wired to my airbox tubing.
I was curious so I stuck the new brass key in the ignition while holding the head of the grey key next the the brass head. Jeep starts right up, and still runs once the grey key is tossed in the cupholder.
I also tried pushing the key up into the steering column next to where the chip reader is, this also works.
Awesome thanks for the info hopefully I won't ever have to deal with that issue again
Same here. I saw I a few but I didn't find very intuitive or easy to follow. I'll just take them to a locksmith and swap out the other lock cylinders when done. I like having both full and 1/2 doors and the Softop. I'm in Va. It's not as cold as Midwest or northeast but it's amazing how quiet the jeep is w/full doors.
Washed about a hundred pounds of thick mountain clay off of it, then got a new Walker cat installed. Top side of flat skid still had some primer showing so I put on a thick coat and will bolt up tomorrow. Also bought the parts for a ZJ tie rod (inner had to be shipped in) and continued my electrical work.

Wheeled it up at Richlands Road with some club friends of mine. It did great with the recent repairs. Had a noise on the way home that sounded eerily similar to the bad centering yoke, although not as loud. A quick stop and some door slamming later, I found it was the exhaust sitting on the trans crossmember and rattling. The cat bracket the shop added last time they worked on it had broken. This is actually about the best case scenario as I'm going to the shop tomorrow anyway to get a new slimmer cat installed so I can mount my flat skid.
And here's the one tight spot I got in. Wasn't that sketchy but couldn't get straightened out. Ran some line and yanked it right back where it needed to be.
How the hell did you do that
