Stolen from the Denver Airport last night

Probably on it's way down I-25 to Mexico.

Kill on sight. I mean... Please notify the authorities is spotted.

Thanks,

The responding officer told me that the politicians are trying to make car theft and burglary something like a misdemeanor offense where you only get a ticket instead of going to jail. It costs money to put people in jail...

Man what a damn shame...
I sure hope you can recover your rig whole.
No Onstar to locate?
Nope. And the Denver PD called me back because their computer says my license plate doesn't exist. The one I've been paying for for The last 5 years.

That does suck. I've heard a lot of thieving going on these days. If not your vehicle, then your catalytic converters.

Anyhow, I have been even more cautious, parking the vehicles in the gated backyard instead of the driveway. Guess I'll go back to cabling my rear axle to nearby fence posts when out. There's MP's truck.... going down the road with 50 feet of chain-link fence trailing it... lol
That's what the guy hanging out with me till the cops got there said. There was a particular model of 4runner that they would cut them off.


What reaaaaly sucks is that this is the first time in the 15 years I had her that the market is so ridiculous. Like I could even find another LBZ with only 100k on it to start with. FML.

If the truck was parked in the long term parking section of the airport the thief had to pay to get the vehicle out of the lot. Did they get a face on camera?
Short answer: No. And the outflow gates have license plate cameras.. On hold with ExpressToll making sure they know it's stolen. Dude told me yesterday sometimes they just smash the arm on the gates and don't stop on the way out with a stolen vic. And now it's snowing out and I've got a POS KIA Sol.

Cease fire, cease fire. Unload and show clear. Remove all magazines and case all weapons. The line is now cold. The vehicle has been located.

I have no idea how bad she's beat up but when I woke up this morning I had voicemails from both the Denver and Lakewood PD's. Apparently my Chevy was FORD. (yes!)

Meanwhile...Notice that they were certain to remove the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor off the back window so it was harder to find them. Pics are here.

Pay attention peeps. Time have changed. Nobody give a crap if you have passlock XVI. If you read the scene here.

Step 1: Remove Plates from front and back and destroy identifying EGA. Departure cameras will not notice.

Step 2: Break the plastic that holds the door handle, then reach in the hole with channel locks and bend the locking rod that goes to the lock cylinder. Gain entry

Step 3: (not pictured) Hammer something into the ignition cylinder so that it breaks, you can unlock the steering wheel, and get it out of park.

Step 4: Unhook the ECM from the engine. Connect your own standalone and bypass all VATS, etc. Passlock? WTFE Bro, we're outta here!

Step 5: exit public space, take it to a quite dark warehouse, and gut it for a 7 YO touchscreen. Steal all the boxes and adapters that Roswell worked so hard to integrate. Take his almost new monoblock amp, his RF slim subs, his flashlight, his hunting and fishing licenses, his freedom pass for national parks for disabled veterans, his floor mats, the little box that makes the DVD headrests work to keep his kids happy and quiet. Take the combat trauma kit, the roadside EMT kit that his wife used to save a life one time, the recover strap, hooks, half a quart of oil, and a behind-the-seat set of tools. Take the bed cover.

Step 6: Fill the bed with random crap from the next car you steal Leave the new sweet ass wheels and tires. Leave the Banks tuner that you unhooked. Leave the iDash, but smash the screen because the best part of you obviously ran down your mom's butt. For some reason, break off the real wheel hub caps. And...disconnect the MAF extension.

I mean, seriously. WTF happened here? Tweakers in a hurry for a fix? That was a lot of work to get it out of the airport parking lot. I might just have to park it back there once it's fixed and go sit on it. I'm sure I can find a nice spot 6-800m away...

Really, you sphincters took my weathertech mats but left a $1000 tuner+iDash? I wonder if I still have a spare?

And why was it abandoned on the side of the road instead of properly stripped? I didn't leave that much fuel in 'er but that's easy enough to fix. Enjoy my brake controller you flocking ducks. Oh yeah, and the locking pin for my hitch. Better add that to the insurance list.

That's it, I'm making a thing. I don't care if you bypass everything with your own electronics. It still won't run without fuel. Grrr.

You know what? all the smoked in it was pot, and not much. I guess I'm better off than this lady

I can replace all the plastic in the interior. I probably taken it apart completely at least five times. The only thing I really can't replace is the motor and the transmission. And I think those are probably just fine. That's a pretty good outcome. And honestly I really wanted a new radio cuz my old one doesn't really work that well with my new phone :) you know what they say. When God closes the door he opens a window.

Oh the irony.

I'm definitely going to go with billet in the future, but that doesn't stop them breaking the window next.

In aircraft we have these things called firewall fuel valves that we use to shut the fuel off to an engine if it's failing or on fire. I'm sure I could rig one that would be hard to find and just cut it off when I park somewhere. Of course, the ones for aviation are probably a billion dollars, but no fuel, no drive. Or it would just die in the middle of everything, denying them the ability to get it to a quiet place and strip it.

If you're REALLY bored....

I'm not to cool for da boot. Cabling the wheels requires a lock, no?

@firestopper ,

Thank you so much for taking the time to pass all this info along in such a well-made post. This would be a great solution and probably get a decent insurance discount. I'll add it to the list of things for 'when I get it back' Great idea. Sorry it took so long, I had a lot to do for a new job yesterday, including getting something notarized in a snowstorm, lol.

All that said, my wife and I stay proficient with our personal weapons and have ample range time. Thats my idea of gun control.:)
There's proficient, and then there's proficient. Check out the hole in the little man's heart at 25yd. 'Course, he's not the one who stole my truck so...

That's one of the other sort of personal wounds about this. I've got a custom carry sidearm and had a sweet Kydex IWB holster I had made at OnYourSix in San Antonio before we moved. Nothing in a big box store fits it. And...because I was sloppy, the holster was in the vehicle. Not the end of the world but still. Hard to replace.

We can have that discussion elsewhere out of respect for this thread.
Y'all can have it out in here if you like, I don't mind. It's still going to come down to personal feelings/beliefs and background. I was raised and trained as swift/silent/deadly. Any known threat can be mitigated or bypassed. Much like the thieves who stole much truck removed the licence plates in parking to mitigate the threat of the exit cameras identifying the vic on exit. I'm a walk softly and carry a big stick kinda guy. But I do appreciate you open carry folks being a deterrent, and distraction :) .

I think the argument that a threat might target open-carry folks first in a mass cas/insider sitch is however, unfounded. It's trying to apply logic to an illogical situation. Nobody reasonable or logical just opens up on a group, and when they do, it's hardly what you might call tactically executed. Now, if the situation were different and was just tactics between opposing forces, then open threats become targets of opportunity. But this too has nothing to do with open/cc. We've just taken a pistol to a rifle fight.

So they decided today that they were going to total my truck because the drug test for meth came back as the strongest positive the testing company has ever seen. I can either take 28,000 outright, or about 24 and get it back as a salvage vehicle. At that point I could either rehab it myself or sell it to somebody else who wants to. Curious as to your thoughts. I've driven a truck since I was 16 and I really don't see that stopping.

Other planning factors are that I finally got hired by United Airlines so I have to commute an hour each way four or five times a week. I will be pretty busy and not have a lot of time to devote. I have a commuter car that arrives on Monday, so the truck can sit. It would cost about $5,000 to have the interior properly mitigated, but I could probably take it all apart and get junkyard parts for less. I've taken it all apart on multiple occasions.

Thanks in advance,

Joe

Sounds to me like you want to keep her with the long history. With a a commuter car, time is on your side to source parts on the cost saving side.
Amazing how a human can consume that much meth and not expire.
I know right? It makes my vehicle hazardous but.. somehow they just get bad teeth?

I'm keeping it. There's an industrial hygiene place that's going to remediate and certify it. Now I just have to find it every last part for the interior that's made out of fiber somewhere else. I would imagine removing a headliner that's 15 years old and replacing it with a good one is going to be difficult.

You could try car-part.com for yards near you that may have something workable.

Interesting. My neighbor said the same exact thing and he's a pretty smart feller
