No top or doors, at work?

I want to take my top and doors off more often, but I rarely have more than a day off at a time. I don't like going through the effort of taking the doors off if i'm going to put them back on later that night. I have been debating whether it is a good idea to go to work without doors or a top. I feel that someone may mess with it or throw something inside. I work at a fast food place, but I have to park in the neighboring meijer parking lot. I can see my jeep if I walk to the front of the store, but I work in the kitchen so I can't do this often. The area has a lot of traffic from all kind of people. Also, I generally work from the afternoon until 12 am. So, do you guys think someone would mess with my jeep? Have you had yours messed with?

I have no problems with it but I park in a covered parking garage.

That being said, it is always a possibility someone will mess with your Jeep, but no less then a convertible or someone who leaves their windows down.

Make sure everything is locked up/ no valuables in view and it should be fine I park on one of our company lots that is in the GHETTO. and haven't had an issue.

Of course. I don't leave anything in my jeep, except for in the locked glove box and center console.

You run the same risk if you have a soft top.

Not to freak you out, but it doesn't take too much effort to get the center console open, you might want to think about getting something lockable and made of steel (as opposed to plastic) if you keep anything super valuable in the jeep when you're not around. The only thing I leave in my jeep is a burned copy of the white album.

True, but a car cover is more noticeable, and it would be easier to cute... Maybe I'm over thinking it..


And the only thing I keep in the center console is zipper lubricant and the keys to the locks on my wheels. I would probably take those out, and leave the center console open.

.
get the trail cover. it works awesome. dont skimp on a rampage. i did that

let them cut it. its cheaper than replacing any part of your soft top. the other thing i do is leave a wad of change in my cup holder. by the time they get it all out they will have ran out of time to break into anything else.

Dont leave anything of value in it and you be fine. I never lock mine, including glove box/center console. They can look all they want, that way they dont damage anything.
