TJ door question

I bought a 2001 TJ Sport in September. The key locks are a little hard to turn and the door latches are a little hard to pull. Even have had friend think that the doors are locked.

Can I just use some graphite on the key locks and some WD40 on the door latches or should I dig into the interior of the doors and clean everything up?

Thanks for suggestions!

Many locksmiths now use TriFlow (teflon) spray instead of graphite for locks and it works better and doesn't leave residue. Also works really well for any metal to metal parts. Just get a can (Ace Hardware has it) and use the straw to spray the inside of your locks.

WD40 evaporates in a short time. I use PB Blaster

PB Blaster is a penetrating oil which works well on sticky, tight or partially rusted components. It will do what WD40 does, and then some. It doesn't evaporate like WD40. It can be had at any auto parts store or probably Walmart too.
