Well, without putting out a lot of details (not really sure how the vehicle is built):

Take the plastic covers off the steering column , in the back of where the key cylinder is located will be the actual ignition switch (separate from the cylinder) you can unbolt it from inside the column and turn the actuator in the switch (like you would with the key in the cylinder)(Acc/Off/On/Start...) with a screwdriver, a key or whatever...

I'm not sure if your car model has a "transponder key" that is a key with a built in chip for security purposes... Being a 1995 i don't think it does but i might be wrong. In this case there is a reader that wraps around the outer end of the cylinder which reads the transponder in the key.

When I did this with my 2000 Ford, (to which i had the transponder key), i took out the old cylinder (was bound up, had to drill and destroy it and most of the mechanism in the column), and when starting the car with a screwdriver in the ignition switch, all I had to do was hold the transponder key close to the side of the steering column where the cylinder was and that did the trick...

I've lost the keys to a '95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis. Is there a solution other than changing out all the cylinders?

Yes, you can take your photo ID and your proof of registration to the dealer. They can cut new keys by looking up the key code for your vehicle.

Firing order for a 4.3 liter v6 1-6-5-4-3-2

#1 piston is the first spark plug drivers side front of engine.
Passenger side cylinders are 2 4 6
Drivers side cylinders are 1 3 5
Distributor rotates clockwise and the starting spot is marked with a 1 on the top of the distributor cap.
Make sure you note the position of the 1 on the old cap before you take it off so you don't rotate the new one 180 out

Door lock cylinder...

You'll need a new ignition switch from the dealer. Removing it and replacing my rating of 6 - 10. This means unless you have a Bentleys repair manual you wouldn't know exactly where to place 3/64th drill bit in order to push the locking tab in the cylinder after all the trim is removed.
