I had my atv stolen when I was thirteen. Worst was that the 3500 spent on it was all my own work money.

I had someone throw a stale bagel in my jeep.

Worst of all someone pissed in my jeep.

Years ago a buddy of mine was having problems with his car stereos being jacked. They would grab them from behind and rip them from the dash, making a real mess of things... As a "bright idea" he taped razorblades around the back edges of his next stereo to teach the next one a lesson. And a lesson was learned by all... The next time it happened the stereo was still in the dash and blood was all over the inside of the car.
About a week later he come out one morning to find all 4 tires slashed, all the windows busted,,, and the stereo gone.
It wasn't a Jeep,,, but it's a good story with a poor ending. I guess the moral is,,, there is no winning.
Regards,
Rob.

One day I parked right around the corner on the street at work with the top and doors off. Took a bike for a test ride and there was someone sitting in the drivers seat in my console! So I stopped the bike by my jeep and said "Hey there I like the jeep" He looked up suprised and goes "Thanks its a blast" So I said to him "Yea I know...its mine" and held my jeep key up to him. He took off running so fast and as much as I wanted to introduce his face to the pavement I couldnt help but to laugh.

Back in 2005 I pulled up in front of my uncles house around 3:00 in the morning in San Antonio in a "good" neighborhood to visit some family. I was TIRED from the drive so I just took in one load of stuff. At 9:00 my cousin woke me up to tell me that my window was laying in the street. Yep, sure enough - slid right under my 2001 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD Crew Cab ( window tint held the glass together ). Long story short, items stolen were my: Alpine cd player, leather jacket, handgun, extra mags, holster, backpack with my police academy book and binder in it, video camera, digital camera, and 2 cd cases full with 196 cd's! Turned in a claim to the insurace company and got everything paid for except the cd's...apparently due to the easy target and high payout, they stopped paying claims on cd thefts not long before that. Hmm, 196 cd's at say 12.00 each.....
This was definitely a lesson learned, I made this too easy for the punks and I'm sure they were like " cha-ching, jackpot"!

To make matters worse, the next day while driving my uncles minivan to the lake to pay respects to my late father (pancreatic cancer 1993) and reflect on life (recently divorced 2003), while my window was being replaced; I had the fortunate privelage of meeting officer xxxxx of the Texas Highway Patrol for going 10 over in a 60 mph zone.

Needless to say this was a very costly trip with very little payout in return, I suppose, with the exception of "the lesson learned".

For the OP....That was definitely NOT a BB. Shoot a BB at ANY glass, and you'll see what I mean. The OP's Jeep probably has wide tires that stick out past the fenders. The rock was launched by the outside edge of the tire.

I disagree. Mythbusters tried shooting a BB at a laminated and unlaminated windshield once. A non-CO2 powered BB gun was able to shatter an unlaminated windshield in one shot. Rearview mirrors are not laminated, thus a BB could do some serious damage.

A glass shop can probably cut you one that you could glue in. Not sure if that would be cost effective though.

Still no action so I'm slowly replacing them and upgrading. still looking for ways to make it harder for them to get stolen again.
Try either Loc-tite or super glue!
