I've had several occasions to talk to the people at Jeep and participated in seminars and surveys looking for consumer input. I have made it known that using chip keys on Wranglers is stupid. Loose a key in the middle of nowhere and you're in trouble. The answer is always, "it's an anti-theft thing and it comes out of the MoPar parts bin".
Even though there may well be Jeep thieves reading this post, I've found that the best and most secure way to hide a chip key is in the electrical distribution box under the hood. Easy to get to if you know what you're looking for.

Thanks for the ikeyless.com tips! They only have up to 2010 listed on the website. I submitted a ticket to find out if they have 2011 blanks yet. I will let everyone know what I hear back.
Thanks again for the info!

$17.95 now and they include instructions. I have my own key machine, but if you go to a hardware store and give them the cost of cutting a regular key, they should be happy to do it for you.

|JRickW||I ordered smart key blanks on the Internet. I had them cut at a local hardware store. Then used my two original keys to program them (see the user manual for procedure). Total cost less than $40 for both keys.|

|rics1997||Now if you just want a spare to unlock doors if you lock your keys in I had Lowes make me one and I broke the plastic top off and put in wallet. You don't need security key to unlock door but it will not start the Jeep. That Key cost me $2.00|

|arrowhead||My '07 bought used from a dealer only had one key. The dealer wanted $150 for the key and programming. I went a few blocks down the road to a locksmith and got it for $65 total cost. A dealer is always your highest price option.|

|rics1997||I had to get a second key. One dealer wanted $105 and another wanted $120. Not sure two dealers where different. Then you have to have them program it. I was lucky that I complain to the dealer that sold it to me that I never received a second key and they ended up giving me one for free.|

|Peepers||Not positive for jeep, but I know other electronic keys cost about $60 cut or $100 cut and programed to your vehicle|

electronic key issues?
being a worrier I became concerned whether storage of a spare key somewhere outside might present problems;
also what do extra spares cost on the new style security rather than old hard brass models
