Got vadalized!



Jeep got stuck, I went back to get it the next morning and found it like this:

(yea yea, I know, never go off roading alone. I learned my lesson)






they left me a lovey token right in the center of my valve cover...



stole the soundbar.. I guess they didn't want the radio! I think they didn't go for it because I took the faceplate with me..


Overall not a great Saturday. Looks like I need to park her for a while.

the windshield is toast.. I need to get a new one. Apparently a log got thrown through it and it dented the frame.
The hood was found about 20 feet away at the scene.. I just need to buy the bolts to get her back on.

I don't know about the tire quite yet. I'll have to check it out. It looks pretty out of camber.

Wow, that really does suck. There was a story I heard awhile ago about a guy leaving a new WK and finding it all shot up the next day. I can't believe people do that kind of thing, but I guess I'm not surprised.

I hope you get your YJ back up and running soon.

WOW, I can't believe something like this would happen in NJ, but then again I shouldn't be surprised.

Man, that is crazy how fast they were able to strip it. I am sorry that this happend to you. Keep an eye out for parts on CL in your area. Not sure if you can do anything about it though.

How far back in the trails were you?

I live all the way up in woodbridge but the Jeep was down in the Lacy township. It was only about a mile back into the woods. I am in the middle of rebuilding her at the moment. Got a new set of headlights for $20.00 and side markers for $15.00

The only real expenses I am incurring are going to be the windshield frame/glass and the new soundbar. The throttle cable/bracket will probably cost a penny or more then I would like as well. The rest of the stuff is cheap enough to replace. It is just time consuming. For now I am riding around in a 89 Blazer on rainy days and my ninja on nice ones.

were you off roading on private property??
one time at my friends field this guy kept driving his truck in and going mudding, and we kept telling him to leave but he kept coming back, finally we dug out the hole really deep..he got stuck , had to leave it over night..we found his truck and got my friends tractor, hooked a chain up to the truck and flipped it over, it was a 03 z71 ...the guy came back and called the police, police got there and said they couldnt do anything for him, he was on private property...but im sorry to see that..i'd be pissed

I checked the gas tank and I didn't see any residue like sand or dirt.. I think some kids just found it and used what tools I had in it to beat on it. Doesn't look like a pros work at all. They didn't strip anything, they were just looking to cause damage. I personally would have cut brakes lines, took off suspension items, ect.. stuff that really does damage. ( if I were, not that I would)
I'll probably drop the gas tank and clean it out anyway.
or let it run and kill the motor so I can drop in a 4.0 lol

EDIT: no it was on state property.. I doubt the county officials would do this. I wouldn't wheel on someone elses property without asking. It was a public "trail" off of a main road.
