OE Freightliner Key Blanks

....This is going to sound super nit-picky. I'm trying to find OE Freightliner key blanks at a reasonable price so I can have a couple of extra ignition keys cut.

There are handfuls of aftermarket keys available but I don't want the key to say ILCO, I can't stand having "fake" keys... don't ask why. lol

It seems FTL OE stuff is hard to come by on the internet. Best part number I can find is 22-54495-000. The nearest dealer is probably 50 miles from us so not sure I want to drive all the way down there.

What are my options? Anyone have a good source?

I'm assuming these are not chipped and do not need to be programmed? They look kind of like a non-chipped Chrysler key to me...

I have a 2014 but I think the keys are still the same. I went to my Freightliner dealer (Young's Freightliner, Canton, OH), he looked up my rig based on the last 6 digits of the VIN, disappeared back into the storeroom area and reappeared a few minutes later with my requested keys already "punched" to my key pattern. They worked perfectly. If I recall they were about $3 each in 2015.

Maybe if you call that dealer in your area they could tell you if they can do them, possibly even mail them to you.

They are supposed to require an ID and proof of ownership before cutting keys using the VIN. Otherwise anybody could get the VIN off the dash, have a key made and drive off.

I saw that. A blank for $14.30 isn't the end of the world, but then they wanted $20 ground shipping for something that could be dropped in an envelope! lol.

I guess I'll check in with the dealer when I'm there. Gulp....or go with fake keys!

Free shipping for orders over $50, just order a couple oil filters, you’ll need them sooner or latter.

You're one step ahead of me.

I was gathering Cummins part numbers to build an inventory of filters and maintenance stuff, and fired up RockAuto (I used them almost exclusively to source parts for our old 1G Kodiak-based Seneca). I found they do not have a parts tree for medium-duty Freightliners! I can search for individual part numbers but they don't have a lot, and I prefer to buy from one place.

Is "Finditparts" a good equivalent to RockAuto? Have you/ has anyone here had good experience with them? I guess for a key blank and a few filters it might be worth a shot in the dark.

Finditparts has been a pretty good place to order but you have watch their prices. Most all of the filters can be purchased from Amazon but you have to make sure you are buying original Fleetguard, Cummins, DDE or Donanaldson products as there are a lot of cheap knockoffs, especially on the Engine fuel filter and oil filters.

I use them for some of my personal purchases, and they have great service. They also have some great prices on sale items... I purchased a case of Power Service for about 30% less than what Amazon sold it.
