Ouch.

Yes, waiting for the locksmith/tow truck is worth it. I locked myself out on a trip and called AAA. He had it unlocked in minutes using a series of wedges on the driver door. Only damage was a very minor nick in the weather seal. The door flexed enough to not even scratch the paint. One plus for those aluminum doors.

Went out and got a lock box and extra key the next week. Now I never have to worry about it.
Sage advice.

lol. NO LOWBALLERS. I KNOW WHAT I'VE GOT.

But seriously, sorry for your loss. I might have freaked for my dog's sake too. Interestingly enough, the past few months have been the first in about 20 years where my truck's rear slider wouldn't just open if you pulled on it. Used to be able to climb halfway through the thing but I finally got a power slider installed.

Couldn't you have unbolted the rear door hinges and had a friend hold the door slightly open from the front to reach in and unlock it then open the handle and just remove the door?

The door closers would obviously kill that idea, that and how little flex you would get out of the latch side.

Sorry to hear about the damage. Lockouts suck.

The back order is probably actually due to a problem with the seal between the roll down portion of the window and the stationary window. The seal is cut, torn, rolling out on the upper portion. The entire seal assembly comes with new window. Not sure of how many gladiators have been affected by warranty claims.

Actually doesn't look too bad! Get yourself some Gaffers tape next time and you will never go back, all the qualities of duct tape but it comes off much easier and leaves no residue!
