1.pull passenger door lock.

2.get the # off it.

3.use the number to get a new set cut, shouldn't be more that $30 (presuming the door key and ignition key are the same)

Yes, it's call hot wiring. It's pretty easy to do. But it won't unlock your steering column, so you won't be able to steer the truck.

Once you get the door skin off there is a clip holding the lock in place. Slide it off and push out the lock cylinder.

Take both door cylinders out and take to a.hole in the wall lock smith.. I say both because the passenger has the code, but they can also test on the drivers make sure the cut is right.

 

 

I had keys made for mine for 15 bucks.

 

Or you could use a really shaved key, and it will unlock the ignition and allow you to turn it. Having a cut key just keeps them from getting pulled out of the ignition. Before I had my keys made I just used my key to unlock it, then I could pull it out and start with anything flat including a dime

Key code is (was) on the back side of the glove box door.

Ignition can be removed to enable steering and 'hot wire'

1 screw on ignition switch has to be drilled out though....if not....it has been replaced at one time

Find another key like your old one and file it down until it fits in. problem solved temporarily. dont mess with it when it is in your ignition though; the key can fall out lol.
