I didn't mean that we should all throw our fellow wrangler owners under the bus- just that it's obvious that the battery thefts are a problem because the wrangler has a weakness- unlocked hood. Correct the weakness and there will be no reason for thieves to go after your battery instead of any other vehicle's battery. It's true that if someone wants to break into your vehicle, there's basically nothing you can do about it. So the solution is to remove the incentive; make it less likely that they'll want to break into your jeep.
I watched a bunch of kids in my neighborhood walking down the street last month, pulling car door handles. If the door didn't open, they moved along. Could they have smashed the windows of every single car on the street and easily raided each of them? Sure. Did they? Nope. Same principle would apply to locked vs. unlocked hoods, wouldn't you say?
