How many of you have had your catalytic converter stolen off of your jeep?
Being that wranglers are high off the ground seems were a good target.


Just curious

They get big money at the wreckers, they are full of platinum and other highly sought after materials, there have been car lots here that have seen every signal cat converter removed from every truck on their lot.

Not on a jeep, but a friend of mine in Dallas has been the victim twice of this issue on his Toyota T-1000 (i think thats the model...) First time, it was gone completely, 2nd time, they must have had to leave in a hurry, they left the socket on the bolt.

Our company parking lot was hit, I was on vacation. Another place I worked had some cats stolen, again I didnt get hit. I don't know where it is on my jeep never looked maybe its hard to get to due to the TC pan?

it's a common crime, they crawl under your rig with a sawzal and cut them out. A used car lot was hit around here last year....got every car!
There are laws now at the recycling places, they arent quite as easy to sell as they used to be.

Knew someone from high school who used to steal them (way after we lost touch). After he had a family and had "cleaned up" his act, he still couldn't stop if he saw a perfect car for reaping. He got surprised by a off-duty officer and tried to drive off with the cops arm still in his truck. Long story short, the officer shot him while he was being dragged. Lost his life for a stupid catalytic converter...
