Stolen J10 hope they find it...I know I'd be bummed if it had been mine.

That sucks. One of my big fears with making my truck look really nice on the outside is that someone will steal it. Back in the early 90s I was in Alaska but my Harley and Triumph motorcycles were in storage in Oklahoma and were stolen. As a result I've always been afraid of having something that others think might be worth stealing.

It's not a terrible expense to drop a GPS/LoJack type tracker in a vehicle anymore. I certainly will if I ever have something really nice.

That stinks, hopefully folks will see that and help them get their rig back. Seeing that makes me wonder if installing a kill switch might not be a bad idea. Has anyone done that in theirs?

And a nice conclusion to that story....

With all the support from our friends it looks like the J10 was too hot to handle with the crooks that took it. It was dumped in plain sight on a busy street in Orange today. Big thank you to all those that shared the MISSING info.

Good to hear.

That's awesome news! Here's hoping there wasn't much damage done to it! Pleased to hear it was recovered.

Good to see it was recovered but the one('s) who stole it should be sent to jail and have there ass('s) whipped!

They must be dumb too, who steals an FSJ and thinks they'll get away with it?! If your going to be a jack off and take a car, ya gotta steal something common. FSJ's and cars like them aren't common, they stick out like a sore thumb in today's traffic.

That is excellent news. Hopefully no worse for the experience.

"Truck has been sighted stopping at every gas station on I5 Northbound."

You have to wonder what they were thinking, it would be impossible to sell it on without someone finding out.

Glad they got it back!
