Once when I locked the keys in my work car they wedged a rubber bladder between the door and the frame. Then they inflated it and stuck a hooked wire down the open space until it reached the door lock button where they pulled it open. The door frame is flexible enough without it snapping. Good luck.

Go to the auto parts store and buy you a slim jim.Just slide it in at the very corner of your front door window(towards the rear of the truck).Get a friend with a flashlight(if your windows are too dark to see thru)To stand at the other door and tell you when he sees your lock moving.That means your close to the right spot.Most that I've done were pull up.But,Some are push down.Just be easy and if you get pissed,walk away or you will scratch your windows or trim...My wife lived in perryopolis years ago.Hope this helps..

Or just push down on the rolled up window, if you're lucky you'll realize your window regulator is shot and need a new one, while also being able to obtain your keys!

i ended up callin a locksmith n payin 50 bucks.. it was raining today and i didnt feel like screwin around.. the guy wasnt real happy my windows were tinted cause he said it made it harder but he got in so i was happy.. i know the dealer wanted like 70 dollars when i tried asked about getting a second key made.. i think i might see if i can just get one cut at the locksmith without the chip and just use it as an emergency key if this would ever happen again.

Bingo... Hit up ACE Hardware, they will make a key duplicate for I think $2 bucks.

No chip in it, but they do offer that option.

I put my giant key in my wallet, I figure if I leave my wallet in my truck with or without the doors being locked, I'm an idiot.

So wallet + key = avoiding lots of yelling, cursing, and hate at the Wal-Mart parking lot, lol.

Luckily I've only locked my keys in my car once, and that was years ago when I drove a shitty little '89 Nissan Sentra (buried it under a Ford Expedition on the highway 3 years ago, RIP). I never bothered with a locksmith, just smashed in the small window on the rear door to get in. Needless to say I received a great many suspicious looks from people in the McDonald's parking lot thinking I was trying to steal it. Come on people, don't you think I'd set my standards a bit higher?!

I've used coat hangers on my Dak, first time slightly damaged the weather stripping. Go in from the top of door. The durango look to be the same, just a second layer of weather stripping to go around. I had my friend borrow my truck, started it and closed door, it was running 2 hours before I got there to open it.
