Just got mine rekeyed.

The locks in the doors of mine are "TM202" (as seen from the outside) which I think is the "newer style" door lock. The key blank is a TM4 (at least that's what my locksmith muttered). If you hunt around you can find "Trimark 202" keys, tumblers and blanks.

Fwiw, apparently many (or all?) of the trucks in the fleet are keyed the same way. I had a pair of "stock" keys cut and a pair of "new" keys cut with a different ordering of my tumblers. Took about 10 minutes to take the inner door panel off, prize out the tumbler, flip around the individual little plates and put it all back together. Nice to have fresh keys that are fairly unique.

If there is any question, its super easy to pull the tumblers and walk into a good lock smith. 4 new keys cost me 12 bucks and probably 8 minutes in the shop.

I have a 1997 LMTV and I tried to take the door handle/latch off to take to a locksmith and I got the inner pannel off and took off the one bolt holding the latch on...and I can't figure out how to get it all the way off. Do I need to take off the upper latch? There seems to be two long, thick metal poles going from the lower latch to the upper latch and I can't get these off the lower latch? Any suggestions. I saw the post for the TM202 tumbler and keys. Are the keys already cut or do I need to take them to a locksmith and have hi cut them?

@johnnydarock, Still got the panel off? can you snap a quick photo?

i'd expect that you probably just need to prize out the locking ring (circlip) and slide out the lock. But, i've only got an a1-r.. so my handles/locks are different.

The door lock tumblers recommended by agazza2 did not work. I got the door handle off and took it to my local locksmith and he was able to just make keys for the existing tumbler. Cost me $50 but now I can lock the doors. They take a older Volvo key blank.

Glad you got it sorted.

Do you have a C7 engine? Get the feeling your truck is not an A1R...... or it is an A1r with a replacement A0 doors which would be real odd but I guess possible still. Do you have the large paddle handle door locks?

I'm new to the LMTV world and don't know all the terms yet but I believe mine is a Caterpillar engine with a 7 speed transmission. Got the door back together today and will move onto getting it registered in California. Just liking the fact that I can now lock the doors...although I also keep a chain on the steering wheel since there is not ignition key. I will look into a "kill switch" type key on the battery box just for extra protection as I want to take my LMTV to Baja.
