couple of easy questions
 
ok has anyone ever heard or even bought a blankkey/remote for an 05 off of ebay and does it work?

and the other thing do you have to take the roof rails completly off to take out the cross bars?

thanks

Don't believe so, I gathered this from the net...

"The rail end caps, two at the rear and two at the front, are attached with plastic clip tabs. To remove or install the adjustable crossrails, the two rear caps must be removed. The easiest way to remove them is to pry out one side with a trim stick or your fingers while pulling the cap up from the back (front side of vehicle). Note the location of the lock tabs in the photo above. The edges of the caps can be sharp so it's best to use a rag or glove to protect your fingers while pulling them off. When re-installing, make sure to align the end tab and check that they are completely seated on all sides."


In regards to the KEY, never tried ebay, I do know you'd have to have the dealership program it for you if necessary...

if you have two working keys now...you can buy a new key, have it cut and then program it yourself. If you dont have two working keys...you will have to get it cut and programmed to your Jeep.

Just one key then, you'll have to go to the dealer to have it cut/programmed as per Scott.. However the key off ebay may be ok it just needs to be cut/programmed.

Look at the feedback of the seller, generally it speaks for itself, if people are having great luck, I'd imagine its working, people wouldn't be buying keys on Ebay if they were just souvenirs! :D
