Help someone took a knife and cut out my window.

Greetings!

Can anyone help me on how to replace the passenger side window for a reasonalble price. I call the local jeep dealer and for about $500 they will get me a new one. That sure seems steep.

I can't understand it Grace(my 2004 Jeep Wrangler) was just sitting in my driveway not bothering anyone. And look what happened to her. She barely has 12,000 miles and has been very faithful to me whenever snow is on the ground.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Bestop sells replacement windows, it sucks that some jerk would do that to you.

when you say passenger windows, are you talking about the rear window or the door window?

Bestop is the OE manufacturer of all Jeep soft tops and windows. If you get the right year replacement windows, they will fit.

In the future you might want to leave the doors unlocked if you have them and the top on so this doesnt happen again. But yeah, bestop should have them or look on Jeep Parts, Jeep Accessories & Jeep Soft Tops From The Jeep Parts Experts - Quadratec

X2 on Ol' Red's advice to leave the doors unlocked when you're running the soft top or plastic windows. That'll save a lot of cut tops or wincows. Just don't leave anything of value inside the Jeep in plain view to attract thieves. Since I never lock my Jeep's doors, I installed a Tuffy glove box and console liner to keep anything of value safe.

i agree with jerry. i've had my tj for 3 years and have never once locked my doors for that exact reason. jeep is on of the only vehicles that came stock with a locking glove box and center console. i'm guessing that jeep saw this as a common problem. i wouldn't rely to heavily on the center console you can open it up relatively easy even if it is locked. i would recommend not leaving anything of value in it and/or getting an aftermarket heavy duty console. oh, and for the windows try quadratec.com, 4wd.com, or ok4wd.com they all carry bestop stuff.

Also, check with your insurance. I have a $100 deductible on comprehensive through Progressive that covers vandalism, theft, act of nature etc. I don't know how many times I intentionally parked under trees during thunderstorms with my shitty old top before I finally broke down and bought a new supertop.

Since I have to carry several thousand dollars of camera equipment when I work, I bought a Bestop Instatrunk--it provides security and allows me to "hide" stuff from sight. Only down side is that it reduces what little storage these things have already.

As far as windows go, I also "skinned" my half-door window inserts (Bestop again). They look good and are far less noisy than I thought they'd be--about on a par with the originals.
