2002 with a 5 speed manual. It had a B&M short shifter. The stickers were pretty unique; there was a ProComp sticker on the upper passenger window that was a total B!tch to get off... I have to believe that one is still there since I could not get it off with hours of work.

Other unique things were the passenger door was fairly heavily scratched, it had a sticker on the front bumper that said "Jeeps are Build, not Bought", and there was a dent on the passenger front fender, just to the right of the marker light toward the center of the car. There was a K&N cold air intake and the drivers side of the hood (vertical part toward the hood edge) had a bunch of deep scratches from sticker removal.

Might you have seen it out in Chicago again?

Thanks for the help

Thanks for the offer, I stopped over that way yesterday and found what I think you were referring to. It was right off 25th. Pic attached. unfortunately while close, it was not the jeep. It had a hard top, fenders were not the same, bumpers were different, and more importantly the color was different. So the search continues...

Thanks for all the help!

Hmm... sounds like I need to head back down there. Will shoot you a text when I get some free time to see if you have ideas where to go.

Thanks!

Thanks, spend most of the afternoon digging the Jeep and associated parts out of the garage. The main pieces appear to be there (engine, trans, winch, bumpers, rims & tires, etc) but many of the smaller ancillary pieces are gone (skid plates, doors, radio, etc). It appears that the thief was in the process of trying to either sell parts or move them onto his own Jeep. The good news is that it appears the thief was somewhat competent and thus the connections appear to be there with no cutting or ripping out pieces. This should help greatly during rebuild.

The police were fantastic including coming back in the afternoon with me to provide support as we collected the components. It is going to be quite a rebuild but the goal is to put it back together mostly as it was; hopefully only a 6-8 month project.

I will need to purchase parts and with this being my now second Jeep I will be trying to find used parts. Will post up a Google doc over the coming weeks identifying things needed and hopefully I can buy from folks in the area that have spares.

I will get a build thread going once I have more time to inventory and determine the best path forward.
