2005 X Wrangler

How do you know if you need transponder key or not?

I believe all need transponder keys after 1997.

If your jeep came with a grey key. It is a transponder key.

are you referring to the Sentry Key Theft Deterrent system?

if so, that was an option on the TJ beginning about model year 2000 (except the Sahara where it was standard) up until about model year 2004 as I recall, after that I believe all TJ's got it.

Your Build Sheet would show code "GXXS" for this option.

......just double checked: 1998 was 1st year for Sentry Key system in the TJ, but it was optional only.

My 06 X has the black keys. I bought 2 keys from eBay, and the guy at Lowes cut them for free since I paid for a few extra house keys to be cut.
