Don't think your the only one that has lost all your keys. I'm a parts associate at a Ford dealer and I get at least 2-3 people a week that have lost all their keys. I didn't realize it was that common. Good luck but I would go to the dealer with your vin, registration, proof of insurance, and photo ID just to be safe. Good luck and always make extras to leave at home.

I had this problem once ...
Two dogs + jogging + ice and snow + storm drain = Sad man - Keys(all keys house cars work and others) + torn pants + loose dogs ... Not a good day for me. had to have Dealer vin cut a new key but that was not for the jeep it was an excape and the 1st sign that it was time for a change.

I have put this in another place as well but I found a place for cheap chip keys(if you have them and one to copy) I use ikeyless.com(no I don't work for them just have been happy with their services) have gotten chip keys for staurns fords and a slide key for my LJ I am waiting for the slide key when I get it I will post here on how it works.

You didn't say whether you have the key with a chip or not, but if you do , you will definitley need to go to the dealership to have a new one made, and those will cost between $150.00 to $200.00.
Just an after-thought, if you have a hat pin you could just push in the ignition switch
lock retainer tab and just pop the key lock out of your steering column and use a flat screwdriver to start your jeep till you can get a key made.

You can call a key/lock smith to come out and he can cut you a key on the spot. As long as you don't have a chipped key anyhow.

I have a grey key (sentry key with a chip) and I needed to get a replacement at the dealer, and it only ran me around $75 for a new one
