IndianaBones I simply don't lock my doors, and don't keep anything of value in the jeep. With a soft top, if someone wants in they usually go for the zippers if they are smart, or cut the windows. I'd rather them open the door than ruin my bestop.

Did it again at the bus depot I work at and used a school bus broom with a paper clip taped to the end. They fell on the floor out of my pocket when I went to start it in the cold.

The only thing I touched were the screws for the TV mount." Now I'm thinking to myself, there aren't any screws for that mount, what the hell is she talking about? Go into the living room and guess what I found?
This is pretty funny. Gotta love it.

People never report when your vehicle is actually being vandalized!

ParktheJeep I let my hair grow out over summer and last weekend I was at the stoplight no top, no doors, country music up and some old lady just pulls up next to me then screams" Get a Hair Cut" and speeds away. I was so confused I just laughed.

Until I had my Jeep I had never locked my keys in a vehicle. I've done it twice now and both times I was SO Happy to have a soft top.

Bad_Dog He's not the same parts guy that asks the type of engine and gas type before telling you what size wipers your vehicle will take?

You can look at that it two ways... One did not know what he was doing or 2) he wasn't going to assume anything.

She does that too?! We have tried and tried but can't get rid of the two strays in the neighborhood. We have given up now, I think someone in China wakes up and finds a dead cat every time we say it because it doesn't work here.

Sometimes, when I am out running, I am not fully "aware", in- the-zone kinda thing. I have waved at jeeps 3-4 times and only realize it after the look of "do I know you? From the driver.

My buddy's neighbor put some on his Moab Edition as a joke and it looked so cool he just left them.

Good luck! Replacing it with the same motor?
