Yeah, I have to shell out for the parking garage every time I'm up there. They'll even leave you a brown one for good luck.

Haha. The only plus is you don't have to worry about your windows getting broken if you don't have a top on your car, which sadly happens way too frequently out here.

Yeah, I really need to get some better stuff to bolt my sub /amp down with. However, 99% of the time it's at work or in my parking garage. Since it's obvious to anyone that I never run with a top, I'm inclined to believe they assume there isn't jack for them to steal in it. I only take the deck faceplate with me. I suppose they could steal my climbing harness and some other random camping junk that I may leave in there... but if that's all that gets jacked on the order of every 1-3 years, I'll pay that price to run it the way I want.

So, I just solved my problem to the above, since I have my hi-lift laying over the sub in the back behind the cage, I'll just padlock that down on both sides with some chain to the cage -- sweet! And then my chain won't take up all the room left in the back!!

Noog7, noticed the E9X M3 in your signature. Do you have a Jeep and an M3? I just sold my E92 M3 because I wasn't getting much use out of it living in SF. I think that's the perfect combo of cars though if you have space for both.

'05 TJ Rubicon 6spd (50k mi) and '10 E90 M3 w/ DCT (37k mi). Perfect combo for off-road and track. I live in San Jose and daily drive the jeep.

I might sell the M3 as I'll get the best value out of the sale right now (no 4-doors available) and determine whether I want to pick up the same thing again or the new 4-door when it comes out. Not a fan of the look of the coupes.

I keep my faceplate locked away in the center console, I take the CB out when I'm not on the trail. My highlift is bolted to my roll bar and locked with a padlock, I have a cheapie socket and wrench set tucked under the seat. I bolted an ammo can in the rear corner of the trunk, I put a bolt with the threads facing out thru the front of the can, I have a nylock nut threaded on and a small flat wrench hidden in the jeep. It not a padlock, but you need the wrench to remove it, I keep my straps and better tools in the ammo can.

If it would kill me to lose it, I don't carry it! Thankfully, most people pass up a crappy jeep, especially when they can plainly see there isn't much to take. Thieves suck!

This is my piece of mind for the while jeep not getting ripped off.

http://olivercheng.en.made-in-china....-OKL6809-.html



I have a steel center lockbox that the PO put in and it's good. That and a rear steel trunk that seems factory but I don't know if the YJ saharas ever came with them.

Rule of thumb is pretty much an echo of everyone else. Can't live without it, it shouldn't live in the wrangler.
