I agree with the others... It was probably stolen and abandoned.

I would suggest that you NOT drive it home. Else you be accused of the one stealing it, or at the very least, being in possession of stolen property.

Just call the police and report it.

Yea that stock ram should be able to get back there. And I don't think think it was abondoned bc there was alot of personal belongings in the truck that I did not touch so I don't think it was stolen or anything. But who knows. I'll go back once a day and check on it and see what happens

Yeah I had the same attitude until I realized I didn't want to freeze to death.

The top and doors on this vehicle are designed only for protection against the elements. Do not rely on the top and doors to contain occupants within the vehicle or to protect against injury during an accident. Wear seatbelts at all times.

While I understand your desire to help someone out, I feel you made some major errors. You had no knowledge of how that vehicle came to be there and abandoned. Was it stolen? The fact that personal items were still in the vehicle doesnít mean a thing. I had a pair of saddle bags stolen off a bike once. Several weeks later a pawn shop called me saying they were getting ready to put the bags on the shelf for sale and had found my name and address on some mail that was still in the bags. The guy that stole the bags didnít even open them up on the way to the pawn shop, if he had he would have found a couple of things that were worth far more than the $25 he got for pawning the bags.

The vehicle could have been left due to damage to the engine, transmission, suspension,Ö that you might not have seen before you started pulling it out of the hole and your efforts could have caused even more damage. And you started the engine up and drove it around??!!

I would not touch it again. Notify the local law enforcement and let them deal with it.

The most I would have done in a case like this would be to look around to make sure the driver/passengers werenít somewhere close by dead, injured, drunk, or high and left a note with my phone number so the owner could call me if he needed assistance recovering his rig. Is this private property? If it is, what were you doing there?

This is a really deep thought, probably one of the more intelligent ones in this thread.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

@ the OP, dont listen to anyone here thats not from LI, they dont realize that here our cops dont give a crap about a stolen jeep. They have better things to do. Or the fact that there are 3 other auto carcases in there. The thing most likely isnt stolen either, the guy was prolly drunk, and left it there when he went left when he should have gone right. Good job OP, youve already stoked the owner out and he dont even know it, its not a big deal at all. I would still plate it and see if you could locate the owner though, just for karma points. Everyone else, they dont care about stolen cars here. Only if theres a body in it. As we can see, there isnt. So relax on the guy, he did a good thing.

Yea oh well. Hopefully this guy gets his truck back bc I pulled it out for him. All I know is that if I left my jeep out there which I wouldn't. I would appreciate if my truck was waiting for me and all I had to do was drive it home.

Sure there is a case when you say enough is enough, however I'd do whatever I can not to. What was your story with having to leave? At least in the winter less people are roaming around. There were some photos I saw one time of a Grand Cherokee that was left overnight in a mud puddle and found shot up the next morning.
