It was reported stolen on the morning of Friday the 19th. No broken glass since I had a Can-Back on there. I'm sure they popped a button and reached inside.

I'd appreciate anything you could do with regard to the police department. I call up there every other day or so to see if there is any status on it.

I reported it to insurance yesterday, but I haven't talked to a claims adjuster yet. Should in the next day or so. I hope they don't screw me out of all the money I put into the rig. I have proof of all the stuff I paid for (Can-Back, ARB, gears, marlin crawler, hi-steer, header, cam, throttle body, exhaust, etc)

Thanks again for all of you keeping an eye out.

Oh yeah...Plate was "Texas P43 SRK" But I'm sure they've pulled the TX plate by now. There was no front plate installed.

Just for a success story.... My rig went away for FIVE MONTHS. Came back with a new exhaust, fuel pump, seats, and some new wiring, in perfect condition.

Dont give up hope!!!!!

Good luck man
Dave

UPDATE

Hey all,

I'm pretty sure I saw my truck today. I was driving Westbound on 580 in Livermore and a black 4Runner was getting off the freeway at N First St/84. I couldn't get over in time to make the exit and it was a mile before I turned around.

Anyhow...The truck had a hard top on it and smaller tires. I'm 99.9% sure it was my truck. There is a small dent on the drivers side by the rear tail-light. Looks like a baseball hit it. Well this truck had the same dent!

I was cruising about 70 MPH and didn't catch the plate.

Please keep an eye out in the Livermore/Pleasonton area!

Thanks,

- Mike

Question

Any luck finding it ? I have a 1985 that looks a lot like yours and I am afraid to leave it anyplace. I hope you get it back.

No Luck...I got a call from the Pitsburg police department saying they found my truck. Said it was now red and stripped to the bone. Engine, Tranny, Axles, Seats, Crawler, Tires, etc all gone. Since insurance paid me out for it, the wrecker won't let me look at it.

Doesn't make sense to paint it then strip it....Oh well, time for a new one I guess...I'll so miss that truck

Did they say where they found it?

That totally sucks.

Seems to me you might be able to take a look at it if you say you are interested in buying it back?

A few shady wrecking yards exist in P-town. and a lot more shady people in that town.

Yeah the yard I went to were complete dicks...I talked to the insurance company and they said they'd let me look at it. However, I'm not sure it will do too much good. EVERYTHING except the frame is gone.

Disco, I'm looking at going to Phoenix to get a new on this week. I'll let ya know...It's killing me to see you guys bolt up on the weekend. I gotta get in on the fun. Gonna need a Sticker for the windshield Rob said you guy's had a blast in the snow last week. Can't wait!

Cya,

What yard was it at. I bet it was the real shady yard.

I bet the fawking yard had a hand in the whole thing.

They probably raped what was left of the truck.
