|calnhobes||You guys all rule thank you so much for your answers. I have a soft top and I totally agree with leaving the doors unlocked, It's more for a convience factor for when I have the wife and kids and I am trying to get everyone in and the doors are locked.|

I did both windows and locks. Well worth it - with ebay cheap prices why not?

smart ***? i was just taunting you - the OP might have a hard top. i have a hard top, i like to lock my doors when my hard top is on because i can keep relatively valuable things in it thanks to the added security. a thief willing to break a window is going to have a lot more balls than the "punk" who is going to cut your window open
i lock my doors when the top is off just because i dont want people opening my door - but thats apparently about as dumb as a screen door on a submarine.

|CanadianCon||and you honestly think "punk" kids now a days dont carry around knives?? if all it takes is to cut a top to maybe make a few bucks, i gaurantee one of these "punk" kids you are talking about would do it... at least where i come from anyways. And i know all this crap doesnt contribute to what the thread was about, but when someone makes a smartass coment on something i say im going to defend myself.|

It prevents the punk kids from rumiging through your Jeep. Not the hardened criminal who breaks a window or slashes a top, but the ones who randomly check car doors to see if they are open.
Your are entitled to your opinion on whether or not you lock your doors, but it doesn't really help the OP much in regards to the question that was asked.

|CanadianCon||actually all i mentioned was save yourself a top, so really i didnt say anything about a hard top. but does it really matter?? whats the point in locking your doors with a soft top on?? its almost as bad as locking your doors with no top on at all....|

When I lived in an Apartment complex with little kids around I would lock my doors so they didn't climb into my Jeep and take it out of gear.

Everyone is going to have an opinion on this (just see above). My choice was to install power windows and locks on my '01 TJ. Like some of the above examples, I also added an actuator to the tailgate. Since I was adding contact connectors to power the tailgate actuator, I went ahead and wired in the dome light to operate when the tailgate is opened. Very easy and very convienent.
As far as taking the doors off, you can use the contact connectors (do a search, there have been some very clean installs), but I preferred to use plastic plugin connectors so everything would work when the doors are open. I just unplug the connectors before removing the doors.
Oh yeah, if you want one more thing to make fun of me about.......I also have heated seats!

|iMTB||That's a nice feature, but I don't lock my doors. I don't keep anything in there to steal anyways.|
