So much for the 'hard top to stop thieves' theory in urban areas.
Yup, windows are still accessible for thieves. Im not sure how much more often thieves break in via the soft top but I’d rather have to replace a window than the top.

Congratulation on the beautiful Jeep. Sucks that it got broken into.

I’m sorry, that really sucks. I feel your pain, I used to live in the city and I parked my JKU in an open lot. The most amusing theft was when someone stole my spare tire and replaced it with a piece of Italian bread.

The scum bag must have never seen the movie, Pulp Fiction. “What’s more chicken shit than F’n with a man’s automobile?”... “You don’t F#$k with another man’s vehicle. It’s just against the rules.”

Man that sucks, but it could have been worse.

I last parked in an open lot when I was in college. No breakins, but I watched some old man try to park there one night, hit a tall street lamp causing it to fall over and flatten a car parked underneath it. I always imagined the owner of that car thinking he was doing the safe thing by parking in the well lit spot . . .

Reminds me of years ago when the garbage collectors in NYC were on strike. Folks would but their trash in a box wrapped up in Christmas paper with a bow on it, place it in car with unlocked door and voila, garbage was gone in the morning😏. I hate thieves-I’d gladly help someone truly in need, but I’d cheerfully put a load o birdshot in the tail of a thief.

This quick reminder everyone lower comprehensive deductible to your auto insurance ...to 50, or 100, or 250.. something low !!! It doesn’t save you much money having it high anyways !!
$0 deductible costs me $6/month over a $500 deductible. Well worth it just for the windshield, much less theft

True! Back in my youth you could buy/install sunroofs in your vehicle. Someone tried to pry open mine with a crowbar which busted the glass but also bent the frame and ripped some of my top. Luckily I found a slighter larger sunroof and just cut my roof a little larger.

This is one of the many reasons I've always felt it worth the commute. Live where I want, work where I have to. I almost made it to retirement sane. :giggle:

Big fan of Denver, no one was surprised when I was old enough to pick my own zip code and I moved out here. But I would be hard pressed to live in downtown Denver these days, for reasons like this. Love the vibe, but there are some tough elements I'm not willing to tolerate any longer.

I'm sorry to hear about your break in.
I've been broken into before and it's not fun. I lived in downtown Houston for 8 years. One of the things I learned living there is to never leave anything inside the vehicle in sight. Not even a empty paper bag.
That will reduce the chance of a break in.

+2 on a strong dislike for thieves.

Dirtbags. Sorry to hear. Can't imagine how pissed I'd be in that situation.

The thieves stole some old prescription glasses, a bag of jelly beans, the wheel lock kit and the door/hard top removal tool kit.
Those bastards.

Fortunately you have insurance and as long as the window regulator still works, the window can be replaced relatively quickly.
Well make sure you keep a couple of bags of delicious looking Poison Jelly beans in there from now on.

his Rubicon's window refused to shatter and caused massive vibrations that incapacitated the thief
Nope, that only happens in a BMW
