I would hate to need 4 different keys for my truck (2001 Ford F-250, no chip in key). Is there any way to rekey the doors and tailgate to match the new ignition? I have been picking for some time now and can repin a regular bolt lock and was wondering if something automotive would be left to professionals or is it something I could do by buying a pin kit?
Yes it is possible and the Ford is easy. However I think your truck has a transponder. I don't have my book in front of me but unless it was a fleet vehicle that year should be a 8 cut transponder.
Best bet is pull all your locks and cart them off to a locksmith and let him rekey the whole set.
