Wow, both of these criminals are idiots. In each pic they managed to hit the metal and not the window at least once.

The alarm on the other hand, I wish I could just disconnect it.

I was thinking the same thing; those criminals exhibited an extra dose of stupid.

I don't think the alarm would go off until a door is opened.

In my brother's Tribeca.....he was trying to close the trunk while it was locked so a little bump set off the alarm. I would have thought that breaking the window would have generated at least a bit of vibration to set off the alarm. I wonder if we can increase the sensitivity to avoid something like this from happening (?).

I tested this theory after i had the window replaced. I wound the window down and locked the doors. I reached inside, pushed the unlock button and it will NOT unlock. I pulled the door handle from the inside and opened the door, the alarm went off.

I wish impacts would make it sound.......i thought that was the purpose of an alarm, to deter upon someone TRYING to gain entry, ie., breaking out a freaking window.

I got my Jeep back today. It was in the shop for 7 days. I didn't pick it up till after the body shop was closed, but i have several issues I'm not happy about.

The glove box was replaced and feels very cheap, it also scrubs on the dash trim so you have to push it shut pretty hard to get it to latch.....maybe just an adjustment issue.

The biggest issue, they replaced the leather seats with covers that look like they pulled them of the shelf from Walmart, pulled them out of the box and slipped them on. The quality, texture, feel and factory match to the rest of the seats is horrendous. They are extremely loose, and look awful. I feel a fight coming on. My wife is so upset, shed rather have the cut up seats back in it. That says a lot, she's usually pretty laid back.

Oh, there's also a huge hole on the back of the seat......wow. I included pics, all the cheap wrinkly ones are of the new seat cover, the last one is a comparison for the drivers side.

I'll report back after i talk to the insurance company tomorrow.

Ouch, oh man I feel for you. None of that looks acceptable. But on the bright side, it looks soo bad that their pros will realize that they have to redo most of it. You shouldn't have to even worry about a fight with them. Good luck.

Well, my Jeep is back in the body shop. I found all kind of issues with it. It had a cut in the dash where they detailed it and must have picked up a piece of glass and drug it across by the inspection sticker.

There was a cut in the new door panel by the speaker, the paintless dent guy sat his tools and tool kit on the engine cover and air intake reservoir, putting scratches all over it.......there are blemishes on the rear door, front door and front fender.

Hopefully ten days in the shop, that should have taken four, will put it back the way it was originally.

Frustrated is the word that describes it best. I'm trying to stay positive though.

After two additional weeks, i hit my Jeep back. The body shop finally straightened everything it and repainted the rear, front door and front fender.

They ordered a new engine cover and air intake reservoir. The new reservoir is updated and has Hemi on it now to match the engine cover.

The leather seats did not match the first time, so those were replaced. Two new glove box doors were ordered until they found one that fit properly.....

The dash has a cut in it, and can't be repaired without replacing the entire thing, so my insurance company is still working on that issue. And the NEW inner door panel came in scuffed, so they have a new one on order.

It feels good to be back in it though.
