Google says yes;

FYI if your jeep key is gray, it has the SKIS system. if it is a black key, it does not.
quote stolen from interwebnet source. no personal experience

edit; since it's your own personal rig, read the owners manual. should have a nice section specifically about the operation of the anti-theft. Also, call the local jeep dealer, and ask about the ECM. they should show interchanges/part numbers per model (just an idea)
