Thieves...

...some bastard stole my Jeep hitch receiver cover. I know it was just the cheap ($15) Jeep Rubber cover, but still, it pisses me off that someone stole it.

I guess it is alright, I needed to install my Warn D-Ring anyway (with locking pin!!)

venting over

Re: Thieves...

That sucks. It's ashame that people have to do something like that no matter what price the item was. Where you home? Even though my XK is garaged, I have a surveillance camera in the front of my house.

Re: Thieves...

I thought someone stole mine but I think I lost it when I was going through the mud at the Jeep Owners Playground at Camp Jeep last year.
I was going to pick up one of those hitch D-rings but wanted one in all black instead of stainless or chrome. Anyone know where I can get a black one?

Re: Thieves...

I got one of the Jeep rubber ones on my old '00 Gr. Cherokee. Had it for 6 years and, since the Commander didn't come with one, I put it on. Damn if someone didn't steal it within the 1st month!

Yes, it really P'd me off too! Really liked that cover!

Re: Thieves...

Where I work I can see my car in the parking lot and one day I saw a guy janking on my door handles. I called the cops and they found a slim jim on him. I was pretty hacked because this happened in the first week and the dude put a nice little scratch on the side.

Did he end up paying to fix the scratch?

Unfortunately not, to use the nicest words as possible he seemed to be a "drifter". Kinda like Stallone in First Blood. Lets just hope he doesn't retaliate towards me like he did in the movie.

Re: Thieves...

I know the alarm works really well, after a 14 hour drive I pulled over and went to have a sleep in a truck bay, just to be on the safe side as it was in the bush still i hit the emoboliser to lock the doors.
there were about 3 road trains parked in the same truck bay and it was 2am.
all i did was roll over and all hell broke loose, the lights started flashing the forn started beeping very loudly , I sat bolt upright hit the button to unlock the car and peace prevailed. always lock the car from the door button if you wish to have a sleep in your jc. lesson learnt.

Re: Thieves...

It's amazing what folks will pilfer. One can purchase the exact same hitch cover (sans the Jeep logo) for about $8 almost anywhere.

I have a hitch mounted bike rack that tilts down to allow for opening the rear hatch. It's held up with a clevis pin. Can you believe someone actually stole the clevis pin out of it one day when I was parked outside the grocery store? Fortunately I noticed before driving off. I was able to secure the rack with a bungee cord.
