angry angry What the hell is wrong with poeple!? I mean seriously?! Someone broke into my jeep, stole my cd's and my skateboard and then stole my gas tank along with $1700.00 of other misc. parts. The weirdest part being that they didnt break any windows to gain entry to a locked car and they left my radio/xm radio alone, left the vintage record player in the back plus some tools (including the ons that they usd to get the parts off with, but those were left UNDER the jeep)... they also locked the doors when they were done and put all the bolts/brackets back together after taking all that shit off. So my jeep is sitting at this shop without a gas tank, fuel pump and every other stupid little thing they took. I think my jeep is bad luck. angry angry

I don't think I've heard of anyone stealing a gas tank before Shocked ??? I know that XJ's are an easy slim jim target though. I used to be able to get into an XJ in about 10 seconds. I wasn't a thief though...just worked at a stealership.

Oh...did I tell you I have an XJ gas tank for sale? Very Happy It's missing straps and bolts though. Rolling Eyes

(sorry...couldn't resist Embarassed )

I'm really sorry to hear about that. My '03 Dodge dually diesel got slim jimmed a couple of years ago in the front of our house. Stole some stuff. I had an alarm put in the rigs after that. At least maybe I could sick the dogs on them now... and if push comes to shove, I could shoot them in the ass with my 12 gauge.

I don't think your Jeep is bad luck. I will venture to say however that winning the lottery probably isn't in your near future though.

yes i did have a full tank.. but i'm almost sure they had to suck the gas out anyhow... i mean dropping a 20 gal tank thats full isnt easy. Its a long job just for gas. I havnt figured it out. I was parked near Duval street in Old Town key West... its not a bad neighborhood.. i mean its a 2x3 mile island.. its all pretty much one neighborhood. But yeh gas is like $2.60 a gal for reg. Who knows.. i just hate that it happened to me. GIRRR pissed

Well since its just a small island just driv.....er um .....walk around looking for a yard full of broke down Cherokee's and nock on the door and start asking questions. Wear your sidearm for good luck.


Im sorry that I need to pic on you about this.....but Ive never heard of someone having thier gas tank stolen and Im just trying to lighten up your mood. I would be serously pissed if It happened to me too. It sounds more like some weird fawked up prank than anything else....like maybe it was for a scavenger hunt. Maybe some guy has a crush on you and will stop at nothing to keep you thier......or maybe the e-Stalker has finally found you....maybe keep your weapon handy.

i mean i know they have in tank fuel pumps so the whole tank set up is like 600 bucks from a dealer... but still. Loosers. Eh.. dont worry about making fun of me.. i lauhged for like a good 20 min when i noticed it was gone... i mean i was just shocked.. like huh who steals this stuff! haha. Oh well... thank god for USAA and deductibles... cause $500 is better than the $1800 its not costing to repair it.
