Please keep a look out. My XJ got stolen sometime between 7pm and 7am Wednesday-Thursday (12/4-12/5) in Jersey City, NJ.
My XJ is a 2001 Cherokee Sport, bluish gray color with NJ licence plate U81AKZ.
It has a 3" lift, 30" tires, 4 hood louvers. On the rear glass is a USMC Sergeant rank decal on the lower left corner, a white oval USMC Artillery decal in the lower middle right above the whipper and a Dive Flag on the lower right corner. It also has JCR offroad Deluxe rock sliders (black) and a new off road driver seat.
On the rear view mirror is a DEP green tag as well.
If it's spotted, please call the Jersey City Police Department @ (201) 547-5477
Jersey City Ford on Rt. 440 called me and they found some of my personal belongings that were inside my truck "dumped" neatly by their service department. They found it at 7:30am on the corner of Williams Ave. and Bennett St. neatly stacked and "protected" from the rain with the child booster seat over my work documents. On the pic is a dry spot where my belongings were placed. Unfortunately, they took my good work gear! It seems whoever stole it has some form of conscience to not just throw things away.
It seems my rig got stolen around 3-4am Dec. 5th. I didn't cancel my ezpass to see if it can get something. This is what I got today after remembering it.

On Saturday I got a call from my local police department saying that my vehicle was recovered by the Auto Squad of another city's police department (Newark). It was recovered on 12/14/13 but since it's the weekend, I couldn't do anything until today (Monday) since the Auto Squad and the impound were closed on weekends.
After going to the Newark police to get it released I head to the impound. Trudging though a mud filled lot that looks like a "you pull it junk yard", off in the distance I saw the top quarter of my truck, sitting over the other vehicles . As I ran for it, I thought to myself that this is a great happy ending for my horrible day. When I finally got around to the other mashed up, stripped car chassis before my truck...this is what I saw..
Had the lock punched in and my steering column destroyed by some thieves in a hotwire attempt on my old Chevy in St. Louis, MO. The 30+ year veteran SLPD crime scene investigator had only one piece of advice: "Get a Club"
