I have a 1999 Ford Explorer and I wanted to get a spare key for my vehicle.  After calling the local Ford delearship and being quoted over $100 for the spare key, I wanted to know if anyone knows anywhere in the Tustin/Irvine/Santa Ana location that can produce the same key for less...maybe a locksmith somewhere.

Or just call a few master locksmiths and ask.

This forum is international, so not a great resource for local questions like that.  But check back on your thread later just in case.
