Jeep Stolen

Well, as the title states my Jeep was stolen last night. My paid-for-in-full Jeep that was running fine. Seeing as how it was probably stolen for parts and I am not confident that I'll get it back I guess it is time start looking for something else. It probably won't be a Jeep because of the gas mileage. While I had the Jeep it was one thing, but for me to actively look for another gas guzzler just doesn't work for me. It's too bad... I LOVED my jeep. It will be missed. As for now, I tip my hat to my gone Jeep.
Thanks

I will give it some time before I give up on it. However, I am not optimistic that it will turn up. It was a gas guzzler for sure, as on its best day it got 15mpg and all winter it got 11-12mpg.

I did have full coverage, but I'm sure this will end up costing me a considerable amount of money. The money really isn't what's bothering me. I worked hard to pay for that Jeep, and I've invested a lot of time and money into its maintainance. It was a GREAT Jeep, and I miss it already. That having been said, I am just being realistic when I say its probably not coming home.

Well considering that my parents and siblings trucks get around 12 mpg's, I have the most fuel efficient car. Were I come from offroad vehicles are a must, prius' and other cars don't cut it.

I have already started checking craigslist for it I don't really have any pictures but I would know my body panels if I saw them. As for a bad area... It really isn't one. I live in one of the cheapest citites in RI to insure. Even the cop said they don't have many cars stolen.

"You" knowing your body panels "Won't" help "others" from possibly recognizing "Your" jeep for you. How bout a description of any unique things.
