Came across this unfortunate soul at the Denver 4 Wheel Parts Jeep fest today

He parked it outside the Hotel next to the Denver Merchandise Mart right next to where the Parts Fest was.

How do you take precautions so that this doesn't happen to you?

I wonder if they took the rear window, or was it already missing?

I almost wonder if they didn't break it out to get in. There's glass on the passenger seat and floors, but not enough that they busted the door window out. Speaking of which, I imagine they took those with them as well.

I'm thinking those are adapters and not spacers. That looks like a wheel and tire from a JK COD package.
