You can't. Your truck has a transponder security system linked to the computer. Known as PATS (passive anti theft system). If the computer does not detect the transponder from the key it will not allow the vehicle to start. The only way to solve the issue is to have a ford dealer "marry" a new key to the computer.

Which technically since you lost the ONLY key, will If I recall, will require you to get two new keys.

I've locked keys in my truck/cars before.. never have i ever lost my keys. I'd come home with my boxers missing before my keys, wallet, or phone...
