Can't you just unzip that thing?'. <LIGHT BULB MOMENT!> I put the AAA card back in my wallet. At the parking lot, I unzip the rear passenger side window. I still can't reach the keys on the passenger seat from the outside though. The lock mechanism is also out of reach to unlock. A small co-worker volunteers to squeeze in through the small side opening and grabs the key. Whew! Lesson learned! Yay for zippered windows I guess? hehe
My TJ was a soft top, I never locked the doors. I figured a "nice" criminal would unzip my windows. I had a steel security glove box and a security drawer under my seat. Anything of value over $10 went in there. Had things stolen out of my jeep 3 times in 3 years, nothing I cared about ones I installed those though

Wow. I like it.

LOL. You could have unzipped the rear one and jump in.

BTW, I don't lock my Jeep with the soft top on. Learned that lesson long ago when someone cut into the convertible top to steal my cassette tapes.

ltsrapcon Drove it 2300 miles from PA to UT through mostly snow packed and icy roads. From Springfield MO to Amarillo TX it was a skating rink. Everything from big rigs to smart cars were in the ditches. Went several miles that had a seimi in the ditch every hundred yards or so. The only Jeep I saw in the ditch was a TJ pulling a 12ft uhual trailer, and it looked like he was about to drive it out. I would have stopped to help him but I was loaded to the rafters with stuff and another 500lbs on one of those hitch racks. I was way overweight, headlights pointing up, and still got 19mpg for the entire trip. stock tires and 3.21s. Kudos to all the Jeep drivers out there who kept it between the lines and for those who couldnt I hope you get to upgrade rather than just repair.

I got gloss , couldn't decide between it and flat.. My wheels are gloss so I went with the wheel to try and off set the colors a little... May do flat later.. Still undecided on the look... Although it has lost a lot of the sheen in a couple days... I can only imagine the wax issue..

What year? My '12 and '14 were/are simple to find, no roll bar cover takeoff, I just moved it a bit out of the way where the soft top attached and unscrewed 4 torx screws (2 per side). There were even Velcro flaps that kept the slits in the rollbar cover closed.

Moonrider [QUOTE="Mammoth919;14930305"] I used reflective vinyl. If you email pixel decals they will send you waste vinyl. For like $6. I have some left over could mail it. Stuck it to an aluminum plate and 3m'ed it to the bunper. No spacers. It's just sitting on a PS fairlead mount.[/QUOTE

Thank you brother.

What I did to our JK today

Removed the soft top and put on the freedom top I managed to score for $675 last week! Yahoo. The wife was impressed with how little time it took us to get it done. She would have been happier if we could have removed the mounting plates (they're sharp and grab everything) but we couldn't figure out how to get the roll cage padding off.
