    All you need is the VIN and some sort of proof of ownership. I don't think they used coded keys back in 97 so it shouldn't be that expensive.

    It's been my experience that locksmiths are better to deal with than dealerships when this sort of thing happens.

    Ya any locksmith should be able to make you a key. My friend just bought a 1979 F150 last night and the seller lost the key so he had to have a locksmith make another key for him.
