lock/ key issue

not sure why but i can not get my key to work in my doors, i can use it on tailgate though. PO says he just never locked the doors so he didnt know they didnt work the jeep came with hard doors so i dont think they have been changed. anybody have anthing that migh help me figure this one out. and what s the easiest and/ or cheapest solution? i dont leave anything valuable in the jeep but would still be nice to lock it if i wanted. my girlfriend had to crawl through back to unlock the doors when we found it out lol

My 97 TJ is weird like that too. Most keys I get made won't work, but I finally got one made that would start it, which is ok with me, because I don't lock the doors either. It works the tailgate only if it's turned the right way, and that's the only thing I might lock if I ever get an Instatrunk. I figure the locks are just worn out. I also can't for the life of me get the ignition switch to turn backwards, which sucks because I had to wire my radio to have power available all the time so I can listen to it with the jeep off if I want.
