What have you found?

I'm sure you all have found many interesting things in your used vehicles. I am a rather new Jeeper and recently purchased an 09 JKU. The first week I had it I was cleaning the floor mats and decided to look around under the seats. I quickly realized there was a carpet flap under there. I felt around under the carpet to see if anything was under there and sure enough I found some change and straws and even a Sam's Club card.

Tonight I was reading through the forums and came upon a thread about Cabin Air filters. I got curious and decided to run out and see if mine had these. After popping the glove box out I discovered more than expected. All of the things I found include: two Sonic straws, two visor clip on mirrors, registration and insurance from previous owner, and someones address and phone number. The first picture is what I found when I took the glove box out. The second is all of the junk in the floorboard.

My question to you is, what have you found in your used Jeeps?

I took the center console out of my last tj and found a condom. Then the aftermarket back seat made sense..
Also found a women's drivers license. Ran it through NCIC to make sure she wasn't missing or anything!

My LJ it wasn't what I found it was what I didn't find. The straps for the windshield and rear seat were missing. It held no surprises other than the dealer sprayed tire shine inside the center console. The stuff they used is a nightmare to clean off. Its pouring rain and my spare is still shiny.

In the first car/truck I bought off a lot, 90 Ford pick up, I found a parking ticket from Sacramento in the glove box. Ok it was a NorCal truck and now its a SoCal truck. The scary find was a broken crack pipe under one of the rear jump seats. I tore that truck apart after that to make sure nothing else was left behind.

My 02 TJ came with a niki Minaj CD from the previous owner and a bikini top in the trunk. Once I picked the car up I flung the Cd out onto the highway on its first topless drive. HAHAHA (something's just don't belong in a wrangler and niki Minaj is one of them.)

^ nice, hopefully someone ran it over so others do not need to suffer.

I watched a show once about people buying vehicles from auto auctions, then getting busted because of drugs being hidden in the frames, spare tires, etc...
