There are obvious things you need to do when your top is down. I make sure my GPS and ipod make in the glove box and lock it, I know it sounds stupid, but I'll roll up the windows and lock the doors just to make it a little harder for the would be asshole trying to get at my stuff or put a profolactic on my shifter

that is if I were to keep the doors on...

I try not to lock the glove box or center console, both mine are stock

locking them gives the would be offender a reason to look, he see's it locked and thinks about the wonderful things hidden away for him to steal.

so far I have been lucky... I am just a sitting duck though...

near my house there is an upscale outdoor mall/shopping area. I consistently read stories about Doors, stereos, windows, etc.. being stollen from parked Jeeps. Can you beleive someone has the audacity to steal doors off of a vehicle in broad daylight in an occupied area? unreal! pissed

My brother actually had the custom steering wheel stolen out of his pickup in broad daylight on Saturday afternoon in a very crowded mall parking lot. The thief would've need a puller to get the thing off.

UNREAL!!

The perfect security system for the top down Jeep...
I would like to buy the "MAGNA VOLT" anti-theaft system showen in the movie robo cop II.

Once the crook enters the vehicle and starts to get comfortable, 5 metal bands protrude from the seat, 2 for the arms, 2 for the legs and one for the head.
Once the person is secure in the seat, 30,000 volts of electricity pass through the crooks body until he or she dead.
Then, when you get to your veichle and open your door, the smoldering body falls out of your vehicle and on to the ground waiting for the coroner.

Put the top down on Your Jeep, and you won't have the burnt body smell. Wink

Uh, I just have an ignition kill. Rather home made and so far Ive had one person jump in my Jeep and try to start it because I walked into a UPS store and forgot them in the ignition. The Jeep didn't start and well No problem after that. Wink

If you dont want it stolen dont keep it in your Jeep. Mr. Green
