Theft of Jeep Doors in Stamford, CT

  
  
  
  

I used to live in Stamford so will still read the local paper there online to keep tabs on what is going on with old schoolmates, etc. To my dismay, this is what I read yesterday.

Theft of Jeep doors was a crushing blow

Staff Reports Posted: 12/26/2008 01:00:00 AM EST

To the editor:

To the person(s) who vandalized my Jeep on Dec. 9 where it was sitting in the Springdale train station, and stole the doors: I would like you to know some things.

First of all, I am a person, not some invisible entity. The day before you vandalized my vehicle, I was let go from my job after nearly nine years of employment. I am a single parent struggling to put my daughter through college. I am recovering from foot surgery and it is very painful to walk. I have no savings and nothing else of material value to my name but the Jeep and my condo, and I am one of many people who are struggling and behind with mortgage payments.

So now, because of what you personally did, I cannot drive the vehicle. I cannot afford to replace the doors because - guess what? - they weren't covered by my insurance; the price to replace them both is at least $1,500. So I am forced to walk in snow and slush and am in agony at the end of the day because of my foot. So I'd also like you to know that you ruined my Christmas. You've also made it 10 times harder for me to attend job interviews. But then again, job interviews are probably something you wouldn't know about.

And now, what about you? Without meeting you, I can safely say that loser, low-life and petty criminal would all be apt descriptions.

Next time you think about vandalizing a car - that is, if you think about anything at all - try to remember it is a real person you are hurting. And you have hurt me a great  deal.

I'd hate to think this was a Jeep person who did this, but seriously, who else would find value in them, specifically. Ugh. In the middle of winter, no less.

I have no contacts in the "hard parts" world of Jeep doors. Anyone have any ideas on how we can help this women get some doors on her Jeep?

OK $1500 for doors are they gold! You can find doors for as little as $500 and half doors for 200-400 check E-bay and craigslist. Soft uppers will work with a hard top or a soft top on a TJ. If its a YJ rember CJ stuff will work. If its a JK good luck. Its times like this I wish I could go to the person's house and help them there are so many options with jeeps that people just don't know about.

I just bought a Wrangler X unlimited, 4 door. Any ideas on after market step for the side rails. I have bad knees and could use something about 6 inches lower to help make it easier getting in and out, something I can remove when I'm off road.Thanks, Shannon

E-BAY OR CRAIGSLIST Should have a listing for someone in her area getting rid of doors. Jeep Clubs unite and assist if you can. Gotta be something hanging in your garage that she can buy or borrow for a while. Jean, if someone helps her out, please let me know.

I have a set of hard doors I would like to sell. I am asking $800, they are black, off my 2006 Rubicon. They are in good shape, with the darker door panels and some minor paint scratches. If you are interested I will be driving to Vermont next week we could meet somewhere along the route. Jean knows me, or of me, so if you have any doubts about meeting a stranger from Jersey, just drop her a line (Jeepin Al)
