Wattapunk I would think trying to pry and removing the sliders would be alot harder than just breaking the cheap window latch,opening the window and unlocking the door to steal them. Those Bulldawgs are nice but not too many of us would spend close to $1k for locking window sliders.

I checked Bull Dawg's website.
Their upper sliding windows are lockable to the door.

Although, I did not read about how easy or hard it is to actually remove them.

geiman Like everyone else said, absolutely nothing except the honor system. And don't forget, that goes for your soft top as well. Unless you have a hard top and full hard doors, there isn't much use in locking your doors.

Coming from the guy in Long Beach California....the other 93% of the country requires doors often.

All Terrain JK Like I always tell my son, don't leave anything in your Jeep that you don't mind sharing.

Atthehop I have a very good friend that looks his cars in my driveway and that drives my nuts. No one is going to break I not a Honda in my driveway. We barely lock the house. Must be the old school in him. He also locks the doors when we go out for ice cream. God sakes I am 62 and know not to pull the door release.

A lot of the members here have said that they don't lock their Jeeps, and they don't leave anything inside worth taking.

If so, that sucks.

I like the idea Jeep had by creating a lightweight, upper door system that allows you to remove (or install) it at a moment's notice. But, like everything else, give the bad element enough time, and they will find a way to take advantage of a good thing.

You'd think that Jeep would come up with a way to secure the uppers.
On my 94YJ when the doors are shut you can't life the uppers out, but all they need to do is cut the window or use a finger and unzip the windows and reach in.

Atthehop You can lock your 1/2 doors but then all they need to do is cut the plastic. My best suggestion is to live in a good hood. My TJ goes everywhere and I never lock it. Nothing to steal except a Sirius radio which I get for free so take it. I have even parked in NYCwith the top down w.o any problems. Just don't make it say steal me!

'Uppers' Protection ???

How are the upper soft windows locked in place?

What I mean is, I know you just pull up on the 'upper', and it's lower rods come out of the door. So what keeps a thief from just walking up to a Jeep, and lifting up on the upper, and walking away with it?
