How to reprogram a transponder key for a 08 Jeep wrangler.?

I have an 08 Jeep Wrangler x and lost the only key. I purchased a used lock cylinder with a key online. How can I reprogram that key to my Jeep. The dealership wants a fortune so I'd rather buy a programmer if need be. If I opt for a programmer, what's a good one to do the job and is reasonably priced.

    The dealership can't program a used key anyways. If you want to do it yourself then the only scan tool I know that can program keys that I've used myself is the Matco Maximus 3.0 for the low, low price of $4,499.95. Even then, that tool will probably tell you it's unable to program the key because it's a used key. lol

    The reason why you, the consumer, can't do that are the reasons why transponder keys exist.

    You need to call a car locksmith if you do not want to go to a dealer.
