Think your local ace hardware can cut that??
Many vehicles can be started with a shank key.
Everything has a price.
Just be glad you are not buying a Mercedes proximity key...

I've read on the Ram forums that attempting to start a Ram with anything other than a factory/dealer programmed fob will cause the entire system to shut down. The only way to reset it is to have a dealer interface the truck with the factory network (like they do when programming accessory codes). Very good theft deterrent.
I bought the extra fob when delivered ($125, IIRC) and keep it hidden in the cab. They didn't charge to program it. Have an Ace Hardware cut key hidden outside the cab which is only used to open the door.
