I believe that my JK's rear cargo area (picture attached) is very vulnerable to theft.
It's a 2011 Wrangler 2dr with a soft top---and am really fearful that risk of theft is even greater when the top is down.
If I'm away from home and have to leave my vehicle unattended for even a short while with stuff in the rear cargo area, I worry that a thief could easily cut the plastic window and pull whatever they can easily get their hands on from the rear cargo area. I cannot always empty the vehicle of its contents whenever I have to leave it unattended. Typically I cover the contents with a grey/black blanket that matches the interior upholstery fabric (my logic is that if the contents are covered they will be, "Out of sight---Out of Mind" to a potential thief).
I suspect that most theft is opportunistic in nature---sometimes they are planned well in advance, but in most cases an opportunity presents itself to a potential thief when they see something of interest while passing by.
Aftermarket suppliers do offer various custom-made steel security storage vault solutions, but average cost (including installation is ~$350.00+.
Does anyone have any creative rear cargo security storage solutions that I could consider trying for my vehicle?
