The new key was $35 and change. Canvasback has a computer that's stuck in 1952.

I take it you already tore in to the Steering column? My dads 04 f150 did that one time couldn't get the key to turn for anything.. Dad tore in to the column and just from him bouncing things around freed it up and havent had a lick of trouble with it..

Yes I have it all torn apart and have applied "persuasive" tactics to no avail.

Dont need to worry about Theft so why not just get rid of the key and all that and install a push button start? You can still use the key to lock the truck up..

My Jeep now has a ignition switch on the dash. The one on the steering column was destroyed by a lowlife trying to steal it.

The whole fix cost less than $20.00 and you still need a key to start it.

Ya know that is another good option take a key switch out of a boat and use that wouldnt look as good as say a stock one but you would still have a key..

Except that when you say boat that = marine and the price goes up higher than a truck in most cases

I keep forgetting about you Alaska guys have it like that sorry.. We picked up a key switch that we used in one of our boats i think we paid 20 bucks for it not 100 % sure..


It also helps that we get everything for Marine and Fishing at whole sale..

I'm just glad it isn't an aviation related part. I'd need a co-signer.

Put in a recoil starter.

And call me. I want to come to MCG to watch you pull it to turn it over the first time.....!

(I know Barb would do it for you, if it weren't for that shoulder surgery issue)

Yeah that might help. If it was a manual trans she could push it.

Not yet. I just received the new switch a couple of hours ago. Figured out how to modify it so it can't lock the steering ever again. Will change it tomorrow.
