console lock

I just bought a console from Mr jeeps it was used and after installing it my key works perfectly with its lock. So my question is did I get lucky or is it one of those locks that will turn if you stuff any chrysler key into it?

My guess is the PO of the console removed the tumblers so any key will work.

Retired my 94 YJ 4cyl 5spd @ 200K
Now in a 04 TJ 4cyl 5spd CV @120K+
Both as a commuter vehicle in NW, NJ

Probably got lucky find somebody else with a Chrysler key and see if it'll turn it, or a gm key. I had my old 04 Chevy Blazer key would fit in my ignition and turn it...

Edit... I just checked mine and it'll turn without the key
