How to keep the animals out

Question for those without a garage. How do you keep the animals out of your jeep in the summer time? I had my top off two days and I'm pretty sure a cat peed in my jeep.

As long as you can stand the smell, put a couple of potted garlic plants in the Jeep, keeps most animals away.

dryer sheets can help keep out bugs, stuff some under the seats and in the corners.. and they smell nice.

Ammonia drizzled around the border of your vehicle might help, pee works the same but might offend your neighbors during application ;-)..

This thread should be interesting.

Fill tube socks with moth balls put them in your Jeep when you park it.

Put a big plastic Owl in the back seat. They make good company on long trips too.

Hahaha...I like this one!!
You could look into one of those storage covers from quadratec or something. Just for when it's parked.

^NO!
Unless you want to call every *$#@ cat in the hood to piss in/on/around your Jeep, DO NOT do this: ammonia is a big part of cat piss. I've been owned by cats for years (thank God for the dawg), ask me how I know. :headbang:

Try spreading moth balls around the area you park the Jeep, and under it. It will work for a while, until they get used to them, and it will also discourage mice from nesting or chewing on the wiring.

Otherwise, I've got nothing for you. YMMV, and invariably will...

And I just read the rest of the thread: Sinster6 FTW!

Easy, wait outside with a .177 1200fps pellet gun. When he gets out. Shoot the thing.

I paid $50 for a rugged ridge cab cover and it pretty much kept everything out but the spiders.

I want to know how to keep my cats off my Jeep. Thing wasn't home the day I bought it for half an hour and the cats were walking on it. At least this one has a hard top so they can't use the soft top as a hammock like my old Jeep.

Great tips. I two young boys who love to pee outside. I can instruct them to circle the jeep. I'll try the owl and moth ball ideas also. Thanks everyone.

Back when I used to hunt, I had great luck with the products from here:

Predator Urine- Original PredatorPee- Free Shipping- coyote, wolf, bobcat, mt. Lion, fox urine for deer,coyote, rat, mice problems and more

They have a specific answer for cats.

Whatever you end up doing, don't waste your money on a product called Keep Off!. It is a spray that I bought at the pet store for like $10 that is supposed to repel cats for 24hrs after application. I sprayed it all over, literally on my jeeps soft top. Within 10 min I saw my cat taking a nap on the top.

Try this - it works and will scare that cat away. It can be annoying too, so be prepared to turn it off after they set it off. It won't take log to train the neighborhood pests to stay away.

Best $35 alarm mod EVER!

We didn't go through all the trouble they did, we just used it as it was and put it propped up on the dash facing the rear.

Simple. Get a car cover. That will keep the cats and animals out of your Jeep.
