Locked my keys inside 1990 4runner. NEED HELP

I have locked all of my keys in my 4runner and I have no spare key. The dealership wont let me have a copy because they need the vehicle registration, which is in the glove box. I dont want to resort to breaking any window.
Will it be possible to slimjim the doors or will I need a locksmith. dealership wont help me

you can slim jim the door, its a pia, but do what you have to do. Next time I suggest making a copy and hiding it in place that it won't fall off in a magic box or sticking a copy inside of your wallet.

Just remember, the smallest window isnt always the cheapest.. Learned that one the hard way.

My ex girlfriends 2nd gen key actually opened my 2nd gen doors. If you know anyone else with a 2nd gen that wouldn't be a bad option. But the rear windows are the cheapest and i think you can actually take the rubber molding off and take out the window without breaking it. but I'm not 100% sure.

back when i was a fire science student, i went on a fire department ride along that had a call for a guy with his keys in the ignition with the vehicle on and the doors locked. the police refused to do it so the FD did it for him! you might get lucky, it never hurts to ask.

I actually thought of somthing better now than breaking in and breaking somthing. Since dealership need vehicle registration for key copy (very strict) and my registration is in the glove box. I have decided to get a copy of my registration and go to the dealer for the key.

Some towing companies will do it for cheap, as has been mentioned.

Thing I love about my 4Runner is that it won't let you lock the doors with the key in the ignition.

Be careful with keys made from the dealer like that. My buddys honda needed one and the copy was totally off, he got mad and busted the window out.

I've gotten a key from chevy before and it wasn't right either. Just cuz there the dealer doeant mean there records are correct.

I've had a locksmith come out and make a key before. 125.00 for the housecall (luckily my boss paid for it at the time).
