can start witout key

Well toaday while playing in the mud my key fell out while the jeep was running so i started playing with it and it will start with a screw driver,knife or any point object. So i think the tumbler is worn out. How do i fix this?

If you take your vin in or the jeep the dealer can get the new tumbler set for the same key so you don't have to carry an ignition and door key around or change your door locks.

if you don't use a hard top why bother locking it, you can unzip the windows from the outside........
