my jeep also crossed 1000 miles while on trails covered in snow. Went wheeling for the first time after a snow storm and it crossed 1000 miles!

Got it :-p

Keep locking your jeep, I never locked mine and it was stolen and found stripped!

Vicktoria I had the top and doors off last summer and was heading to the beach. I stopped at a convenience store for some snacks and some elderly man comes up to me and asks 'Is that your Willies out there?' I responded 'Yes, but It it's called a wrangler'. He responds with 'Girls don't belong in the military.' I thanked him for his concerns, but I was confused how he got that idea until I realized I was wearing a miniskirt that had a camo print on it. I think the bikini top should have given it away that I was not 'army'

Anyway that was a very good laugh!

That'd be a great solution if my jeep was fancy enough to have those electronics ('99 TJ gal). Though if that were the case I'd probably have power locks and be able to just leave my spare starter hiding somewhere to unlock it with. I carry my spare with me when my hard top is on (the idea being that I will remember at least my purse with my spare in it if not my keys). I'm not someone who loses things or leaves important things behind - ever - locking my door is just SO automatic to me that I will sometimes lock it even when I know the jeep will still be in sight (like getting gas) and I am intentionally choosing to just leave my keys where they are. It's like autopilot, and once in a while gets the better of me.

THAT IS BRILLIANT. Using that the next time I inevitably mess up.

I got really distracted this summer when I got to the best poutine place in the city (hard top was unfortunately still on at this point, and apparently I am prone to locking my keys in when thinking about food) and jumped out of the jeep with it still running and everything. On my TJ the locksmith I called couldn't for the life of him get the thing open and after at least half an hour of frustration at the guy doing a crap job of retrieving my keys he finally just pulled them out...

The drain plug thing would only work if the person doesn't have a rug.

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.

I couldn't get the back open so I went in through the rear passenger side. Worked. Once he she saw the keys she was like "Oh haha, I've done that a few times."

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.

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.
