    Smile I Need your tips and tricks to breaking in to my Jeep!



    (I locked my one and only key in it). Does anyone near Evergreen have one of those kits that the police and fire departments use? Is there another way? I have the hard top on it.

    Thanks in advance...

    Wish I could help. Haven’t had to break into a car since 1970s.

    Is it rusting badly? Ty does the floorboard technique on his old rusty J10 Jeep.

    Some car insurance has lockout service. Used mine once at Golden Gate Canyon. Might be worth a call.

    Is the back hatch / door locked?

    Shoelace method (if your locks are similar):

    Late to the party, but, I used my AAA card a couple weeks ago when I did the same thing.

    A few years ago a friend did the same thing. He called AAA, paid for an annual membership on the phone, had his vehicle unlocked in about an hour. He was really excited when he learned about the rest of the benefits.

    I have been a AAA member since 2005 and recommend them for anyone who operates a motor vehicle.

    I called D&J towing. The guy had it open in less than 10 minutes with a plastic wedge, an air pump wedge and a long thick wire with a hook on the end. He pulled the door handle from the inside.
