06 Commander?

My Commander only has a gray key. How do I know which key fob to order on EBay?

So you just have the 1 basic transponder key with no buttons?
If I were you, I would buy another cheap one the same as you have because the dealer ( or locksmith) will need to program it. then you can go looking for a 4 button remote and with 2 working keys you can then program it yourself. Unless the seller will guarantee that the more expensive remote will work.

If you bought the jeep as a local used unit, I would actually buy 2 cheap transponder keys and have the dealer erase all other keys and program the 2 new ones because the factory 4 button fob is out there somewhere. . .
underscore and 2005JGC like this.

Will the dealer be able to tell me which key fob goes to my truck? I don’t know if my truck came equipped with remote start or not.

Factory remote start wasn’t available until 2007 model year. If yours is an 06, then You should have a 4 button remote. Lock, unlock , panic , and rear glass.

If you know what the aftermarket units kind of look like you can see if there’s one tie wrapped up under the dash .

^ that may be where the original key is as well, if someone did a ghetto remote start but lost the remote.
