Thumbs down My soft top windows were stolen :/

So I took my top off yesterday since it was a pretty fine day. I did the same thing I always do with my windows, I have towels, I rolled them up, and threw them up on top of my soft top in the back. I normally tie them, however this time I did not. after driving around and what not just having fun, I go back home. its about 8pm and my windows are still there..

Now I go out of my house at around 11 to smoke, and I decide to put my top back up. I go around to the back to grab the windows, only to discover them gone. I'm pretty pissed about this.

I would love to say it wasn't another jeeper but I'm thinking that it has to be. I'm randomly checking craigslist but this just happened last night so I mean its not likely to be posted, and I think my neighbor might of yanked them for his jeep. I live in Brockport NY.

I'm wondering if my windows have my VIN# on them since they came with the jeep

I'm also wondering where the cheapest place to get new MOPAR windows are since insurance doesn't consider it to fall under glass coverage I have a $500 deductable which isn't worth it because even on quadratec they were cheaper.

Any help is appreciated, I'm getting real sick of scummy people, but they're everywhere.

Ahh smart smart smart, I'm real upset that insurance doesn't consider it under glass coverage cause it would be free then. they were confused though i got put on hold like 5 times while they asked but everyone said no.

Since they were off the vehicle I would think your Home owners or rental insurance might cover them.

wish I had renters insurance haha

and does anybody know where to buy mopar tinted windows? quadratec doesn't have them according to their customer service guy.

i could have a lower deductible but then my monthly payment would go way up, I chose 500 instead of 250, and none because I couldn't pay that much money :/

X2...Since they were laying in the back, it should be like a stolen purse, guitar, chainsaw or whatever. Don't call them windows. Call then a canvas screen or something else that doesn't imply they are part of the soft top.

yeah me to man. Never would have thought, of all the things in my car, that my windows would get stolen. I would have expected my radio and shit knob to of been stolen before my windows.

People that steel from jeeps suck. and Jeepers that steal from Jeepers are pretty scummy.

yeah happened to me already, my center console doesn't lock anymore. Sucks.

I mean insurance would cover it but the deductible makes it not worth my time.

This sucks man. I hope you find who is responsible. Ive seen Autotrucktoys.com never dealt with but I have looked for parts there before. Pretty good reviews. It looks like what you need and they're OEM parts. Good luck.

They should be covered under comprehensive minus a deductible.
Since comp is not ridiculous like collision coverage I usually keep my deductible low like $100 vs the $500 or $1000 as customary on collision coverage.

I was also able to score brand new mopar windows in box off of eBay a few weeks ago for $150, so replacement can be less painful.

Its a shame we have to pre-think everything in "what if" scenarios, but as long as there are assholes out there, things will never change. You can only hope that someone steals the windows from them

Thanks, but this doesn't work since I have a mopar top, and the years are very strange, I drive an 05, but I'm pretty sure that 97-02 is still TJ.

and wow thats a lucky score getting those windows for 150 haha i don't think I'll come accross that.

I'm thinking about doing two things, getting my deductible reduced and adding renters insurance to my plan. Moneys wicked tight though so we'll have to see. I like how the auto truck toys has a pay off program with paypal. I'm going to have to take advantage of that seeing as how I'm living paycheck to paycheck atm.

Bestop makes the OEM MOPAR top and windows. Bestop replacement will be cheaper than the MOPAR.

When buying windows, it is important to verfy that you are buying the correct windows. The colors, fabric pattern/weight and zipper orientation changed 97-02, 03-06. What year is yours?

You can get windows from a lot of vendoes on the web. Do price shopping by the part number. There is Craigslist and ebay. (Rockriders also sells on ebay)

out of curiosity that means if I bought a Bestop window, it would fit my OEM soft top? OEM is MOPAR isn't it? the Chrysler Dodge & Jeep brand?

Bestop makes the tops for MOPAR. Bestop replacement windows fit the factory top.

very interesting neil I didn't know that, I did a google search on the matter though. People say that they can see the difference and that the MOPAR windows and tops are better, but then again i did see some saying the opposite lol

So I got my windows in the mail yesterday... I noticed that they didn't come with that black bar at the bottom of the back window for the tail gate... is this normal? I've never bought new windows before.
If it is normal does anyone have that black bar for sale? I'm kind of upset and I'm hoping that it was their error but it is something I forgot to research.

I just bought one off Amazon last week. Brand new $35. They had one that the box had been torn up a bit so they sold it as used.

You might try checking there. New might not be that expensive.
