Jeeprich25 Yup. Had mine gone through 8 times in last 2 months. They made off with a phone charger, cb radio, and laptop (which I miraculously got back a week later). People will steal anything and everything you leave in your jeep. If you want locks, get full doors and a top that can't be opened with a dull butterknife.

If you have a soft top don't lock the doors, if someone wants to break in they will cut through your top or window. Happened to a family member and she had to buy a set of door uppers since she couldn't find a single one. If she left the doors unlocked she could've just lost $20 in cds, instead she lost the cds and had to shell out a couple hundred for new windows.

My advice is don't lock a convertible, if you want to lock it get a hardtop and full doors.
And some dirt bags are even too stupid to check to see if the doors are locked. Just last week someone cut a hole in my drivers side window. BOTH DOORS were unlocked. I have a Tuffy center console and overhead compartment and there was nothing inside to steal.

X100. I had a '71 Olds Cutlass convertible and I hated leaving it unlocked. I never kept anything in it, had my CD player hidden under the seat with a hole in the dash where the radio would be.

x2 I have a tool box bolted where the back seat goes so I can lock my stuff up. Tuffy Glove box will be comming soon. If some wants in your jeep for something they will get in. I had my jeep rummaged through 6 times last year but since I dont lock it my top is still intact.

Try tuffy security products. I was just on their website today and saw some door locks for the TJ, I'm sure they have something similar for the YJ
