Default Rumble Bee Key Fob Question ""Please Help""

Hello guys,

Im new to this forum by the way. Looking into buying an 05 Rumble Bee, but I have a concern:

Its a one owner truck, but the Key the guy have its a standard key (No CHIP in it, but a plain metal key).

I asked the guy why, and he told me that it came like that from factory.

My question:

Is this possible? Does some of those trucks came without Chips in the Key? I though that all 03-Up cars had transponders in their keys to prevent theft.

Please let me know. I really appreciate your input.

Regards

if you've been driving it around thus far w/o having a chip key than clearly you dont need one,
also, truck wouldn't even start if it required a chip key and you didn't have one.

Thanks for the input, but my question really is if some trucks come without transponder keys from factory. Cause I'm kind of worried they hacked the wiring to get it to start without one, plus it will be a easy score for a thief.

Default Key chips

Not all vehicles 03 & up have chipped keys. I have an '04 Rumble Bee and mine isn't chipped neither. I had an '04 quad cab Sport 5 years ago and the key was not chipped. I have a question for you though, does yours have a glove box or just the door panel with nothing behind it?

It does have a glove box. Does that make a difference?
