I am at a different EMS station today than I was supposed to be at (hooray for instant promotions ) and I have my top and doors off (where I usually work is secure and in a nice part of town), I have seen several "thugs" checkin my ride out today while I was outside . Makes me worry a little. I have good insurance so I'm not all that worried about it but still.
Sorry to hear about your rig, I either have to leave my Jeep outside with the boat in the garage or the the opposite, I choose to let the Jeep set in the driveway for obvious reasons, no problems so far...Thank God.
Acts of vandalism are totally senseless! Whenever a loss occurs whether it be to self or your personal property it causes grief. Loss and the grief it brings are sometimes too hard to bare. But don't despair my friend,your hope and comfort lies in the arrest of the person responsible. Rejoice when that phone call comes!
They're probably little bastard teenagers from your neighborhood. You should do a stakeout and observe your street at night. Did it once in my locker where thieves broke into, but they never showed up. Perhaps you will be luckier.
JK- Fun ride, always, all the time.
must be hummer owners "jeep hunting" for revenge... Sorry to hear of the troubles, will insurance help at all? Its just the opposite where I live out in the middle of nowhere. Thugs don't know how to survive in the woods. We worry more about racoons vandalizing things! Shoot, I even forgot the garage door open last night with all the lights on. And the windows were down in my van in the driveway.
I found it this morning on my way out and thought "damn it!" I had to shake my keys around in the garage to try and scare up any stray animals that might had moved in during the night.
Some people are just rotten!! Jealous. You have something they dont and take it out on you. If I cant have something nice neither should he/she. Id love 5 min. in a locked room with someone that did that!!!!! Insurance covering you great but not the point.
So, after my JK was broken into and the NAV was ripped out, I had my insurance cover it and fix it all up. That was about 3 months ago. It took about a month for the body shop to do the repairs, but my Jeep came back like new. Great ending right? Wrong!
The same exact thing happened again last Saturday night. I went outside to run a few errands and surprise, surprise, my dash was ripped wide open again and my NAV was gone. SO MAD!!!
I spent the day today removing all of my mods and I will be trading in this 2011 JKU Sahara for a 2012 JKU something without the NAV. We will see how much $ I will lose in the process, but apparently I can't have the Loaded JK where I live.
To catch the SOB, you might try a game camera. It takes a picture every time something moves. They can be concealed in the vehicle. At home a remote camera hooked to an old pc can record everything that happens for weeks.
When my car (not a jeep) was broken into, my insurance agent warned me of a repeat. He said it wasn't uncommon for thieves to strike again nice the stuff has been replaced. Sorry to hear that statistic held true for you.
I recall a debate I was in a while back where we were discussing the concept of blasting someone caught in the act of stealing your bike or ride. At the time, many suggested that no possession is worth defending like that.
I am a peaceful man, and I have insurance... but I also know how much time has been deducted from my potentially average allotment of lifespan to earn the money to buy my bikes, and now my Jeep.
Hpw many meals not taken with family, how many trips not taken so I could work late.
All this, potentially reduced to a few minutes time from a societal parasite.
How could they do this to you? Because they are low life scum, who have never worked hard to achieve anything, and therefore do not understand why you do not touch another's things. It is because they likely were raised without a father, beyond some potential wastoid seed donor. It is because they hate you for revealing that the American dream is alive and well, if only you buy into the notion that if you work hard and manage your resources, atttainable realistic goals can be met.
I am so very sorry your Jeep was vandalized. It's a violation.
