Need new Lock cylinders- where to buy matching set

My hard door lock cylinders don't rotate enough to unlock the doors and my ignition one is all worn out. Does anyone sell a set of matching harddoor, hatch, and ignition cylinders? I'd really like to use factory jeep parts instead of junky aftermarket if possible.

I don't think so but you might ask at the parts counter. Otherwise just buy OEM cylinders and take them to a locksmith, he can make them match.

When I bought my CJ, the hard door and hatch cylinders had been removed, something about a divorce was involved. I bought the cylinders and a locksmith made all three match the ignition key.

All lock cylindes sold by Jeep and aftermarket come unkeyed so that you can have them keyed the same. You must take them to a locksmith. The ignitin cylinders come already keyed, you will then get the other cylinders unkeyed and have them matched to the ignition.
