Thank you for this topic. My 02 TJ was recently a victim of car theifs. They were unable to start the jeep due to the SKIM but did manage to destroy the steering column and cut the wires to the skim module and smash it off the column. I have since replaced the steering column and only lack the SKIM module and the nessary plug that comes from the harness (they cut it off and its missing) to get my jeep back on the road. My only real challange now is finding an old harrness I can get the skim module plug from to splice into my harness.

I have the FSM but this thread along with its pictures helped out alot in seeing how its installed.

Very helpful as I am having to put the SKIM module back in my 02 TJ since it was smashed when the thives tried to steal my jeep. I have the FSM but your pictures really helped. They also cut the plug off that goes to the SKIM module any ideas where I can get another plug to splice into my harness? I have been looking at used harnesses off EBAY but I only realy need that lead.

Sorry to bring this back from the dead but I just recently purchased a 99 WJ and wanted to install a SKIM unit. I read somewhere that used SKIM units have a memory of the keys used. Can someone confirm this? I see all the used SKIMs for sale on ebay but if they're locked down already how can they be reused? If they're not locked down some have keys, keyless entry remotes, ignition cylinders, even the vin from where it was pulled making it a easier install other than the visit to the dealership to activate

Dont all WJs have a skim? Is your key gray?

Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind

Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it

I have a 99 WJ. I believe SKIM became standard in 2000. Haven't torn into my steering column but I did check the build sheet. I got a generic key when I bought it.
