What have you found in your Jeep
 
This one goes out mostly to people who have purchased theirs used but maybe some one owners have unusual finds.

Some background information. I purchased my 2009 JKUR used last year. A couple of weeks ago I dropped my IPod into the black hole. That space between the seat and the center console. I was lucky enough to read on a thread here that there is a black hole where anything dropped here actually slides under the carpet and seemingly disappears. That is what my IPod did and luckily I knew exactly where to look. I lifted the carpet and found my IPod, however, I found several other interesting items. None of these items were mine. I found:

An IPhone
A live .308 round
3 pencils
1 pen

I was wondering what surprising finds other people have found in their black holes or anywhere else in their Jeep. This could be interesting.

Remanants of a frosted strawberry pop tart. Ohhh how I love pop tarts!

11 hot pink and purple fake nails under the backseat. I always wondered about number 11.

With the top off people are always dropping things in my Jeep when I'm away, mostly trash and flyers.

I found the previous owners credit card behind the glove box. I never did see if it was working.

The neglect that the previous owner bestowed upon me

Nothing cool like that, but when I first got my 09 a few months ago I drove to work topless for the first time (my first Jeep). I stoped at a gas station about midway, roughly 20 miles away, and when I parked a cat jumped out from behind the back seat and took off running.

When I pulled my front carpet up I just found the typical spare change, french fries, cheetos, pens, that sort of thing.

89 cents in change, 5 .22 cal shells, pocket knife and an ID card in the defroster.

After I came back from my first semester the family manged to stuff some old waffles in the doors, an empty bag of sunflower seeds, a whole buncha receipts, cleats, and an old shirt in there. Nothing exciting.

When I was a young lad driving my dad's CJ around, I left it parked at a trailhead once and came back to find a homeless guy in it...

Did you keep him? LoL

Never imagined that anyone would have found living beings in their jeep.

LOL

A bird's nest between the grill and the radiator low on the driver's side.

Babasnoopy 02-01-2013 10:11 AM

When I bought my YJ it had been garaged for 15 years. The air filter had a family of dead mice, some nice soft bedding they had made, and the appropriate droppings.

RemoJK 02-01-2013 10:12 AM

I found flowers in my back seat before when I had the top down. Looked like someone picked them and set them in my back seat

TXJKJEEPGIRL 02-01-2013 10:18 AM

a blank check from the previous owner and a few burned cd's.

WeekenderATX 02-01-2013 10:20 AM

Guess this more common than I thought.
Funny.
I've found about $2.50 in miscellaneous change, none of which was pre-65, sadly. :-)
Two lighters, washers, pencil, couple of pens, more toothpicks than I care to count. Now if I could just find some Krugerrands.

sakicnut 02-01-2013 12:01 PM

I found a hockey puck in my air box one time.

Rayko 02-01-2013 12:51 PM

Removed the carpets to clean them (after a really deep off road puddle, hell of a lot deeper than I thought it was), any way under the carpet in front of the console I found a really nice hash pipe.

spatty 02-01-2013 12:54 PM

I replaced the cowl seal about a month ago and found some glasses and a lighter in the window frame.

RoadGlide 02-01-2013 01:33 PM

brand new 2013 JKRU...and found an ear ring in mine... dangle female type...:confused:

bardb 02-01-2013 02:28 PM

Better that you found it and not the Mrs :eek:

He never said the homeless guy was still alive.

dharman07 02-01-2013 03:22 PM

When I first got my jeep back when it was still warm in the fall, i had the top down and it was parked down near the driveway. When I came out, there were a bunch of neighborhood kids in it playing "army".

I had to shoo them out, its a manual, and if they had taken the parking brake off and kicked it out of gear, they could have been in trouble

TXJKJEEPGIRL 02-01-2013 03:35 PM

maybe he was trying to turn it into a soup kitchen, ;)
lol

I would have fought all of them. Age is just a number...

You are the one who made it look like a modern day interpretation of a WWII Jeep. If only it had a .50 Cal mounted in the back then the kids would have had a real good time.

:D
