Yeah thats awesome then... Lowell isnt the worse place ever, I just like to poke fun at it... Just where I live is notorious for cars being broken into... But, thats why I dont care, if somebody wants your stuff bad enough, they'll get it. Esp through a soft top haha. I just make sure I bring my zune in with me everynight

I do, and I've had the top down, and doors off for the last week. Nobody really ever messes with anything on my street. I guess I'm lucky.

|JRose73||Hope you're enjoying the 100 degree weather we're having here in NOVA. If I wasn't so pasty white I'd be going topless and doorless.|

Cops set up sting by faking a DUI pullover and arrest. They left the vehicle at the scene unlocked, it was a nice shiny new fullsize pickup. Older black gentleman, late 50's early 60's comes walking buy scoping out the truck..he opens the door looks around and keeps on walking. 5 minutes later he comes walking back with a grocery bag...he hops in the truck starts eating a sandwich and a pepsi..takes a phone call..finishes eating...then leaves....

Oh boy do I have a story, I usually leave my jacket in my trunk for times when the tops down and it gets cold, well last week it was 40 degrees on my way to work so I threw it on... About 10 minutes into the drive this 2" black and white 8 legged freak comes crawling down my arm towards my hand....
I slam on my brakes and start waving my arm out the side of the jeep like a mad man (all of this while going 60 on the turnpike )
It scared the **** out of me!

|Guadzilla||My driveway extends to my detached garage, which is in the backyard, so I pull mine behind my gate into the yard with the top down and windows off every night. The only thing I do is spread two old beach towels across the seats so I don't sit on bird $hit in the morning.|

|InfernoGirl||x2 on the trail cover! Definitely faster and easier than putting the top up, and it keeps the dew and creepy crawlies out! Oh and it also keeps out rain and all the other stuff....|

I always leave mine open; just never leave anything in there that's worth taking. I came out one morning to a McDonald's bag on the floor, cigarette butts in my ashtray and a pile of change in the cup holder! Apparently, someone rented it while I was sleeping.

Nice!!! I think that will be on my Christmas wish list this year! Then I can feel better about taking and leaving the doors off!!!

|csamn2007||I leave the top and the doors off all the time. I dont worry about rain it will dry out eventually just a wet a$$ on the way home.|

A couple weeks ago I had the top and doors off and it looked like a storm was moving in. I decided to just put the trail cover on since I figured it wouldn't last long. When I got out to the Jeep with the cover, I felt the first drops. I got it on and started to the house when the sky opened up. I never would have gotten the top and doors on in time. It was a bad thunderstorm with high winds. When it was over there wasn't a drop of water in my Jeep.

I backed out of the driveway and made it only about 20ft down the street one morning and a damn cat came flying out from the back area one morning. Must have been asleep in the rear seat well and probably was scared to death. Freaked me the hell out, but woke me up at least...
Since then I try and look around inside if I leave it open at night.

Happy 4th to all my neighbours to the south!

For me, it's mainly pine needles that are unwelcome guests - damn forest
I just ordered a nifty $48 lockbox that bolts in under the driver's seat, and when that's installed will leave the glovebox unlocked.......

|Zetsumei||I've been leaving it without the top or doors on. I rarely lock the thing even when I have my top on! I usually just lock the glove box and all that up and make sure I hide whatever valuables that are in there.|

|darin.1701||i leave it with no doors or windows on it all time. i just make sure i leave nothing of value in the thing...|

Thanks for the replies. It's oddly comforting knowing there are others out there who leave their jeeps open overnight. I'll remember the can of OFF, thanks...What parts of the Jeep do you spray? How does that smell when you have to put the top up? I wonder if those new buy repellent fans would work...
I guess I'll hope for the best on animals not getting in there...I can deal with bugs, but animals may be a different story!
