Stolen XJ Please Help If You Can!

The morning of Monday January 18th 2010 was one of the worsts for me. As I went to the "secure" parking garage where I kept my 2001 Cherokee and noticed that it had been stolen. I, like most of us here, spent a lot of time building this XJ to my standards along with the money. This Jeep had a RE 3.5" SF lift, 31x10.50 BFG KM2's, Bilstein Shocks, AJ's "Phat XJ" custom winch bumper w/ Warn 9.5ti winch and viking synthetic winch line. I am also a U.S. Army Veteran and I like to help people out when I can so I had quite a bit of "search and rescue" equipment in the back. I live in Renton, Washington which is just South of Seattle. If anyone knows or hears of anything please let me know. Thanks in advance.

I am in Red Deer Alberta. I have a cherokee much like yours, same color and very similar. I notice Jeeps that look like mine and I will keep an eye out. I am on the good side of local officials and would be happier than hell to pin down the turds who took your ride (I know I'd be looking for blood if it were mine).
Is there any features unique to yours that would be apparent should it roll by?
PS, god bless you for serving my friend.

Thanks for the consideration guys. It really pisses me off that some people act the way they do. It's been about a week now and there is no sign of das jeep. Insurance said I have to wait 21 days until they will cut me a check. I loved that XJ so much it would be hard for me to build another realizing every second that I am only trying to get back to where I was. That is why I have made the decision that if it doesn't show up I will be purchasing a 05/06 Unlimited Rubicon.

Gramreaper, thanks for the consideration. I did have military plates on it, which I am sure by now are taken off, I hope they felt at least some guilt in doing that means that people like me are the ones who fight for their freedom. It had the stock stereo, also had some yellow speckles of road paint on the outsides of the fenders do to driving over fresh paint. Other than that the body was in real good shape had only 92,000 miles.

I'd get hard on the insurance company, they'll want to cheat you, so know for sure what all you had, and what it will cost to replace.

This is very unfortunate, which is also another reason why I'm going to soon put a kill switch linked to the fuel pump, ignition, starter, etc. Anything to prevent or slow down a thief.

The worst part is the insurance company won't be giving you near as much as you put into it , don't give up though. I've heard guys have their rigs found a month later down in Mexico.

[B][I]New Mexico Driving Rules...[/I][/B][LIST][*]As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.[*]Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.[*]NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
[*]Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Itís called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.[/LIST]
