PiePuncher I got rid of one cat two years ago by letting my dog out after it. The neighbors called the cops and it turned out that the cat was supposed to be on leash, just like my dog. No charges filed and no more sorry @$$ cat spraying my back seat and stinking it up. Since then, I have steam cleaned seats and put wet okole covers on. I didn't truly send the dog after the cat, it just ran out the door the minute it saw it..(I just happened to be thankful)
I had an alarm on my jeep but it was overly sensitive, I had kill switch issues, I had dead batteries at times causing problems and so on. Eventually, I took it off and now make sure nothing of value is visible. If someone wants something bad enough in your jeep, they will get it, regardless of what deterrent you have.
One more note.... Its funny that I'm not the only one that has had issues w those sorry cats. I can't stand them

BigManAndy I just throw on my bestop trail cover thingy and call it a night. That at least keeps most bugs, animals and morning dew out of the Jeep.

whetstone Take everything of value out and don't sweat it. Top and doors won't stop a car thief anyway.

I live on the edge of Camden, so for me, it is always top up before bed time, and Viper Alarm armed. Only annoying thing about nice days is knowing I have to put the top back up.

JAK Yeah I googled it after I experienced the lock.

Feel free to try it out just make sure you have the key on you so you can unlock it haha.

lolitsdaelan It's a stock feature (I'm assuming as mine does this as well). Just crank the wheel when the Jeep is off and it should lock in place.

My advice is take your valuables outta the jeep if possible. Otherwise, lock them the glovebox (though I recommend you remove them from the jeep if possible).
If its not gonna rain you're golden.

As far as steeling your jeep, my '97 has a steering wheel lock at 180 degrees rotation of the steering wheal so even if someone could get it to a hill, push it down and pop the clutch they wouldn't get far.
I left my keys with my mother-in-law's car once and tried steeling my own jeep on the way to church. I didn't even make it out of the drive way because of the steering wheal lock.

If your parked tight, your valuables are safe with you inside and it's not going to rain I think you'll be pretty safe.
Do you know how much the steering wheel
Locked are?

Keeping the top off over night

Well this is my first time keeping the top off overnight and I'm stressing something is going to happen to my jeep. I don't have any sort of alarm system! I blocked my jeep in so nobody can get it out and pulled the starter fuse and fuel pump! Also worried about someone taking the e brake off and rolling into the car behind me
