If any of you are in Chicago and a gun metal TJ with WARN front and rear bumpers, KC fog lights, winch, black American Racing rims, bushwhacker flares and a beefy rear swing away tire carrier it might be my jeep. It was stolen from my house down in River West yesterday at some point. I have filed a police report hoping it will show up.
*****Update, Jeep was found by Chicago PD in private garage. Car was mostly stripped but majority of parts were in the garage. Rebuild starting*****
Just drove around for 1-2 hours, no dice. I saw a Jeep that looked very similar in size but was black and had silver rims. Do you remember where about you saw it? I drove all of Wolcott, most of the sketch areas around there, and wound my way around. While I saw a lot of Jeeps, mine did not appear. This article gives me potential insight into what could have happened, it would make sense since there was nobody parked in front of me nor was there broken glass.
I want to say I saw it driving north on Damen, somewhere around Belmont/Addison.
Do you have a plate number in case I see it again? Not that they would still have them on it but if they are stupid enough to be driving it around.....
It seems like somedays I see 5 lifted jeeps, and none for weeks, this was one of those days where everytime I looked there was another one, so I don't really remember it if it was yours. But I do remember the color, it had the same flares, and black rims. He was driving, so I don't know the tires. There was no winch or lights that I recall. The guy driving it I think looked like a white guy with a dark tan. Didn't get a look at the passenger.
Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that I ask for.
I think I may have missed my doors being sold on CL.. there seems to be some folks selling Wrangler doors on there for pretty cheap. I found an old post (Google cache) from the same person the day after my Jeep was stolen and a post from a few days ago. Called yesterday and he said he just sold a pair of dark blue ones the day prior. Sent me pictures of Red doors (anyone missing their red doors) for $375.
Keeping an eye out for other parts and have been driving around looking for it. Spent a few hours driving around Chicago and Pulaski last night to no avail.
Lot of folks seem to be finding them a week after they were stolen at the pound with their top, doors, tires/wheels, and electronics stolen out of them.
not likely out in my area but ill keep a look out when i go to the city this weekend
