Jeep Broken Into!!!!!

Went out friday morning and my stereo was literally ripped out of my yj. They ripped out my deck and amp luckily they left my necessities though such as hi lift jack, tools, extinguisher and my first aid kit. Now jus gotta wait for my insurance to call me back. I also live in a small town less than a 1000 peeps and this happend unbelievable. I am thinking about an alarm anyone have a touch sensitive one for when the top is off? THX

Re: Jeep Broken Into!!!!!

The same thing happened to me several years ago, and when I asked the cop if he could dust for fingerprints, he took one look at the interior and said, "there isn't a smooth surface anywhere to dust for prints, sorry but your SOL."
Afterwards, I got one of those Tuffy center consoles that has a mount for a radio inside, and it's been untouchable ever since. I feel your pain....

Re: Jeep Broken Into!!!!!

Pick up a motion sensor alarm. I have one with a pager so the only alarm sound the thief hears is a shotgun being pumped behind him.

Seriously, I have found at stores, some inconsiderate people have let thier kids sit in my jeep, my pager goes off, and I run out to see yuppy dad covering my seats in kid slobber [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Jeep Broken Into!!!!!

fire ext and first aid kit i can see would be a waste of time but the tools? they [email protected] up there. ba$tards- they oughta be shot. guess you live in an apt? i'd freak if i had to park any of my cars outside, even though my neighborhood is clean- you never know.

makes you want to sit out a few nights with the 357, but all you'll do is loose sleep- they won't show.

Re: Jeep Broken Into!!!!!

I picked up a motion sensor alarm about three seconds after I took delivery of my TJ. I bought it and had it installed at Circuit City for a little under $400. If anyone gets closer than about a foot in any direction it goes off. Thor, I am still having trouble imagining what I would do if someone let their kids sit in my Jeep.

Re: Jeep Broken Into!!!!!

I'm wondering about the whole pager thing.

That'd be awesome around here.
Stupid little kids always trying to do [censored] to my Jeep, just need to catch them in the act once.

And for the enthusiasts that want to talk about it, know how and why it's built the way it is... I can be out in a jiffy..

Re: Jeep Broken Into!!!!!

Just get an regular alarm and mount the thing that detects vibration right next to your stereo.
Turn it on extra sensitive if you need to.
