I always lock my doors, and I've never had my top cut, nor do I worry about it.

Well if someone breaks into my jeep all they will find is insurance paperwork. Never locked my doors before.

Never lost sleep once. I'd rather not have people car-hop my jeep and set my alarm off.

Had my pinion bearings, wheel bearings, inner axle bearings, and all seals in my rear end changed. $400 later it runs like new again, no "howl" or "whine" from the rear anymore

I didn't get to do anything in my TJ today.

Please Help, Having a really bad day right now. Go through my daily routine as usual, grab my lunch, and head out for work. Only to be left there standing with my keys in my hand asking, "Where's my Jeep".

If you are in the Iowa area please be on a look out for my Wrangler or for the parts.

If you see anything or hear anything please contact the West Des Moines Police department.

2006, Jeep Wrangler Sport, 2DR:

- 4 inch lift
- procomp alloy xtreme wheels
- 4 BFG Mud Terrain 33x12.50 15 tires used
- 1 Procomp Mud Terrain 33x12.50 15 tire spare (new)
- Smittybilt XRC front bumper
- Smittybilt XRC rear bumper/tire carrier
- Smittybilt XRC rock sliders (side steps)
- Bushwacker pocket flares
- The floors have been lined with Mostaliner, as well as the inside of the back tail gate.
- There is a decal of "Eugene the Jeep" on the front quarter panel
- Smittybilt windshield light mounts (was just about to install the lights)
- Red 3ft Firestik antenna
- Tarraflex passenger side, behind the taillight mount.
- Ammo Can with "tools" painted on it.

Below are some photo albums for reference:
Photo Album - Imgur\
Ammo Can Toolbox - Imgur

This photo is older but you can see most of the main items that I had on it.


I'm going to go throw up now, and try to keep from going insane.

Quick test for me was to jack the rear up and see if there was any play in the driveshaft up and down or side to side. Sure enough . Without further inspection that lead me to believe the bearings were out so I took it in to have them replaced. I then received one call after another saying my axle seals were leaking, my wheel bearings were bad, and my inner axle bearings were bad. Figured while they already had it apart it made since to let them replace em. Didnt expect to spend $400 today but knowing that i shouldnt have any problems with the rear for a while eases my mind

Tinted tail lights today to match the marker/blinkers. Can't stop doing stuff to her, I love it. Still debating on painting the grill black, maybe custom rocker panel protection too along with a whole other long list of stuff. 'Sigh'

Check engine light came on today.. Went to the local auto parts store and had it assessed, front O2 sensor was bad. Sure enough $70 later check engine light was gone!

So, So Sorry Man. I can't even imagine! I would rip the nuts off the little bastards if I ever caught them!

We should set up a Jeep "Amber alert" on here that would go out to all the members instantly when such a thing happens! Especially to the mobile apps.

It is going to be in the mid 70s for the next week or so here in beautiful Tucson so I did something I've never done before. I do love living in the desert!
