Angry stupid thief...help?!

Hi WF...first post here. Reading the posts have answered many questions, but I at the moment I am at a loss.

Some jacka** decided to steal my radio the other night. It wasn't anything fancy, but it played loud music and I enjoyed it. Who the F steals radios anymore!?! Anyhow, they ripped off my center console trim and tore the stereo out, ripping off the 2 plastic tabs that bolted the radio to the dash. I have no idea how to repair this, or where to find a new piece that has the tabs. I don't even know what it is called.

Any advice? Has this happened to anyone else who feels my pain?

I can feel your pain. some jackwad stole the faceplate off mine (which cost me damn near as much to replace as the radio did.)

Anywho. daveysjeeps.com has anything you need.

take pics, and we might be able to figure out what to do. I've been inside my dash a few times, and I know others here have as well.

Checkout your local stereo install place and they can usually help you out. Play the sympathy card and see how far it gets you first though. Might work!!

You haven't lived in Baltimore long have you. Back in the '80's I drove a CJ7. I lived in NJ and put a stereo in it and a cheep pair of Radio Shack speakers that came in an enclosure and were weather resistant. I paid $25 for the pair. I mounted them on the rear inner fender in the corner of the roll bar using 2 sided tape and velcro. They served their purpose and because they were cheap they were not enticing to any thieves.

Until I moved to Baltimore that is. Moved down here and came out from the movies one night and they were gone! What idiots steal crappy speakers?

HA I have lived in baltimore for a while. Had the jeep for about a year and a half now. I don't lock it so no one will cut my windows...I don't keep anything in it. Yet all the time i see my doors left open or my glovebox open and dumped on the floor. Literally, once or twice a month. Got my front windows stolen in April. I love my jeep but am getting frustrated with the disrespect

I have had my soft top windows cut twice now and both times my doors were UNLOCKED and nothing worth stealing in the Jeep.

Wish they made a sticker that read;

Nothing worth stealing in here or has a street value of more than $10. If you must insist on looking anyway, the doors or unlocked, and if you feel you must go through the side, for the love of god, use the damn zipper.

Nada vale la pena robar aquí o tiene un valor en la calle de más de $10. Si tiene que insistir en busca de todos modos, las puertas o sin seguro, y si usted siente que tiene que pasar por el lado, por el amor de dios, el uso de la cremallera maldita.

If I catch anyone breaking into my Jeep, I will make sure they never break into a vehicle again...I will beat the everliving daylights out of them. To the point their body is left crumpled and barely breathing on the sidewalk. And then I will call the police and tell them I caught the guy going through my vehicle and when I confronted him, he attacked me.

Almost makes you want to carry a second weapon though...and then you can just shoot the guy and plant the second weapon on his body before the police arrive. These people are the scum of society and need to be forcefully removed from it...or at the very least, castrated so they do not breed and create more thieving scums.

I'd not post such things like that on a public forum. I'd even go as far as to request the mods to delete that post. The darnedest things can come back to haunt you.

Unless you live in Texas, and they break into your jeep at night, you can try to stop them, or at least chase them off. Remember, criminals have more rights than we do.
