Thanks, but it is the driver side. Fortunately I only put the windows in for a couple months out of the year now.

Respectfully?? Interesting. So he should have just opened your door, taken the permit, and left a thank you note. You would have been OK with that? I realize that wouldn't have been nearly as bad as slicing your window, but I fail to see the respect here.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

Anyone ever thought of installing a camera system in their Jeep?

They sell a vinyl window repair kit that we have used on our boat and my jeep a couple times. Works really well and still looks pretty clear. It comes in a tube and they usually sell it at boating supply stores. Put a piece of wax paper on one side, spread it on, put another piece of wax paper on the other side and let it dry. Its worth a shot and a hell of a lot cheaper than a new window. Hope this helps!

Almost makes me wan't to put a note on my Jeep saying "The doors do not have locks in them just open them" I keep nothing in my Jeep, the registration, a garage door opener, a steering wheel club, an ice scraper, and the owners manual. You would think that thieves would realize that most people who own soft tops 1) don't keep anything of value in them and 2) don't lock the doors.

If they stole a parking pass you should be able to find their car and let campus security know (assuming you go to school) then you could get them to buy you $300 worth of new windows.

The problem with this logic is that neither is true. Many people with convertible tops leave all kinds of things in the vehicle.

Thieves are on a one-track mission, get into the vehicle. They aren't going to waste time checking doors.

Did the pass have numbers on it that identify it as yours?

The problem with this type of thinking is assuming that the thieves speak English or even know how to read. Otherwise I'm right on board with you. I say out loud in my apartment's parking lot that there is nothing to steal and talk to everyone very loudly about my deck's function of needing a code after it loses power. Just so the right ears can hear it. My ears hear the proximity alarm going off every once in a while and Mr. .45 and I go see whats the "happy hap" and "who dat is" so to say...

We use a special heat gun and the plastic has kevlar woven into it but it still is the same process. I would just keep the heat gun farther away or go steal your wife/girl friend's hair dryer...but if that doesnt work, sounds like there is plenty of people on here that want to help you out and I would even mail you mine but shipping on a half door (just the fabric) over 1000 miles cant be that cheap.

It'd be sweet but just get stolen.

Any recommendations for prox alarms? I'd like one that would go off if you touch the Jeep. I've heard of Viper but apparently they're sketchy.

I have the viper and contrary to the commercials in the mid 90's, there is no real snake that patrols your vehicle. There is a lot of beeping though...

There's a lot of beeping that people tend to ignore. How many times do you walk through a parking lot, hear a car alarm going off, and rush to the beeping to assist in tackling the perpetrator?

That is a great point! In my situation the jeep is isolated and there is no reason that anybody should be that close to it. My problem is with my neighbors who have seen me go outside on several occasions when the beeping starts. They know I'm vigilant. You can't rely on an alarm for anything, it is just there to warn you that someone is getting close. On the other hand the ignition kill function of the alarm will deter someone from driving off in it until I get outside.

The best security in my eyes is a clean jeep. If there's nothing to steal in sight there is less reason you'll be vandalized. Unfortunately there is no way to factor in the amount of pure evil that resides within a person.
