Default what is the least destructive way to start a jeep

When you lost the keys???
I need to get this thing started so I can get the plow off and decide if it is worth fixing or needs to be parted out.

Is it a manual trans? Can you push start it by popping the clutch?

Without knowing the year it would be hard to say. Probably the easiest would be to run a jumper wire from the battery to the coil and then jump across the starter solenoid with a screw driver. Best would be to replace the key lock solenoid.

How about the good old "pull the lock cylinder,

replace the key with a .39(WHOOPS!) make that

$2.89 screwdriver" routine? Always worked on all

the Chryslers I knew of, and Chrysler owned Jeep for

a while, dinnit?

Well battery is dead anyway. Whoever wired the plow obviously shorted it out somewhere. Should be fun to find.
