    go to the dealership and have them cut a key from the vin code.

    for just a metal spare, it should cost no more than about 10 bucks.

    i would go to the dealer with your license and a copy of the title
    guaranteed easiest fix

    slim jims can cause serious damage if operated by the wrong people

    Know anyone else with a Dodge Dakota? Maybe their key will work? (it's happened before, with different vehicles).

    Just tried that.. theres this "lip" over the window which prevents me from being able to get anything inside it.

    Guess its off to the dealership tomorrow morning. Stupid me.

    you can typically pull the door out and slip something through
    pro's have this inflatable bag, or wedges that do the trick
    pry the door out at the top, and slip something through

    yeah, don't go in the window... pull the door, and go in between the door and the frame of the roof... try not to scratch. and don't try to do anything but hit the power lock button with the coat hanger. there's no need to go into the door frame at all.

    avoid breaking the window at all costs. that's the worst shit. you will find shards or glass for the rest of the time you own the thing... ask me how i know :(*

    Have you tried calling the local police? they usually are pretty nice about popping doors open for people, atleast I know here they are.... just a thought though

    Did you try torching a hole in the outer wall of the door? No AAA or anything?

    Cant you remove a windshield with those suction cups and a heat gun? I know that's complete overkill but I think there are certian windows you can remove easily. Maybe the rear triangles if your Dodge has them.

    I agree with B tho, just use a coathanger to hit the lock switch.. or fish your keys off the seat if that's what you did
