Hope this helps Tim
Struck out at Ace. They had a blank for a Dodge Ram 3500 but not for the Promaster 3500 chassis.

Seems excessive to me. I have no proof but that key can't cost more than a few bucks to produce. If so, then Dodge is telling me to buy another brand next time.

Keys are not just a metal shank anymore.

Call around. Call each of the big three dealers, ask what a key is worth.

" I'm not buying your brand anymore, cause your keys cost too damn much" ... Lol.

Earlier this year I bought Chevy keys, no fob but a chip. $26 from dealer. A few years ago keys for an Impala were much less than $100.

I will ask about my Ford keys when I take this Dodge to my Ford dealer for a state inspection. The local Dodge dealers can't lift it.

Or the one that looks like a pear. ( no shank)

Right.

Now look at the shank itself.
That's a fiat key...

Think your local ace hardware can cut that??
Things change.
Many vehicles can be started with a shank key.

Everything has a price.
Just be glad you are not buying a Mercedes proximity key...
