Locked my keys in my jeep

Hard top
Full doors windows all the way up.

Anyone have any easy way to get into it without breaking anything? The rear glass doesn't seem very tight like I could amount pry it out but I really don't want to break anything on it if I can avoid it.

How would you do that? If your thinking about unbolting the hinges from the door, just call a locksmith. This bolts will either strip or the very least you will be chipping the he LL out of your paint.

Give your Jeep dealer your VIN & get a new key.

I need to drive it 200 miles home tonight, I'm in class now but I have a break pretty soon. I think I'm going to try to pry the back glass open

You've basically got three choices.

1. Unlock the door with a coat hanger. Probably scratch the paint a little bit but should be OK if you're careful.

2. Mess around with the hinges trying to unbolt them, then figure out that it's still attached at the striker and you'll probably not get very far.

3. Call a lock smith and pay the $40 for a lock out service.

You don't need to remove the hinges, only the single bolt on the bottom of each hinge. Just like when you remove your doors... Even if it's still attached at the striker, you may be able to reach in enough to unlock it.
