I went on and let a locksmith rekey my locks.
As promised, he completed the job in about an hour.

I'll check it out.
How much do you figure it'll cost for a set of pins?

|Hardermods||Yep, break them down and rekey them yourself, course you still have to get the lock pins from a locksmith.|

I know that PULLING the lock cylinder is pretty simple. It's just a matter of getting to the cylinders, remembering which one is the left door or right door, and remembering how the linkage goes back on. When I pull mine in the next couple of days, I think I'm going to use a sharpie permanent marker, and put a "L" & a "R" on the cylinders so that when I get them back from the locksmith, there will be no doubt as to which one goes into which door.
Just make sure you take plenty of pictures of the linkage setup.

Look up YouTube videos on rekeying jeep locks.

To make a key from 1 lock cylinder = $25.00

I can't imagine the locksmith doing it for much less than $25. (That's what he will charge me to make each lock cylinder lock & unlock to my original keys.)

|Mowrangler||It may be less convient but probably cheaper to take one lock to the locksmith and have him make a seperate key for the doors, unless you absolutely have to have just one key for everything.|

I have full metal doors.
I recently bought 2 half doors.
A local locksmith told me that, if I brought in MY door lock cylinders, he would re-key them for $25 each, & that the cylinders would work with my existing keys.

|dirt dawber||Pull the door panel off, then slid the e-clip from the lock cylinder and remove the linkage rod, then slide the cylinder keeper/clip away to one side and remove the lock cylinder from the door. Take this lock cylinder to a locksmith and have him key it to fit your ignition key. It's real easy and simple to do, shouldn't take you just a couple of minutes to do this. I did it last week on two TJ half doors that were given to me.|

|Peepers||Go to a lock smith and tell them you need a key made for a door that you lost the key to.|

How do I get a key made for a door that came without a key?
