There were at least five other Wranglers in the lot. One had the top down and was sitting on the far edge of the lot. My Jeep was right next to the door at the first available space.

I shop at that Lowes all the time .. and park as close to the doors
as possible ...

Mine has a kill switch, hardtop, but I am still paranoid when I leave it .....:aagh:

Did it have that blue line on the front of it?

saw one llike that this week in Prescott Valley, towed by a big RV, had the blue things hanging from the front....

It was in Pronghorn Ranch subdivision the guy was backing it into his front/side yard. This would have been Wed. or Thurs. though....looked VERY similar, black, or dark blue...cant remember exactly. I can drive out there and check if its still there if you think the time line is the same. This would have been the 7th or 8th of this month though...when was it stolen?

Phone #???

Does anyone have a good writeup on the killswitch for a wrangler? Maybe a fuel pump cutoff switch? I did one on my Grand but that was a few years back.

Thats a bit over the top but...ok!

I have seen that on my other knife website. Sounds over the top but i hate criminal scum. Again a car is the same as a horse used to be and we should do the same as we used to do to horse thieves.... And leave em hangin for a sign for others to beware.

Still no recovery so I guess it's gone for good. The blue cables on the front were the safety towing cables when hooked to my RV. No kill switch but I could not have been parked any closer to the store. There were several Wranglers on the lot but mine was the only lifted with tires and wheels. Hope they hd fun with it.

However, this has definitely been an eye opener for me and I definitely have been giving my concealed carry permit a workout ever since. There is just something about car theft that gets to you. I am thankful to the Scottsdale PD and the Tempe PD for their quick response. Scottsdale responded for the theft and Tempe sent 2 (TWO) officers to my house to wait for a friend to get there to ensure everything was safe and secure.

anything on your jeep?? I work at that lowes and mine was one of the other ones in the parking lot. (The one with the top down)

No nothing but State Farm gave me a total of 19k for an 05 Wrangler X with all my add ons. I would like to knock out your prissy ast mgr at that lowes with the glasses...I have never liked him and he is such a jackass to customers and employees. I now have my 2010 Rubicon Ulmtd and am liking it but I really loved my old Jeep.

sorry to hear that, and yes your right that guy sucks (not like any of the others are any better)

Found in Tucson at 1 AM Sunday. Not sure about damage yet and the cop said it appeared driveable. However it is now owned by State Farm. Apparently they found a key in one of the door locks. I talked with Scottsdale PD and they said they can sometimes use "pick" keys to start tyhem so I wonder if that is what the key in the door was. It was found on a street empty and I don't have any other details.

Well I guess thats good news...? I'd be real irritated if I never found out what happened to it, even with getting a new jeep out of the deal!:D

Sorry to hear about your Jeep.

As far as the other posting being over the top..I respectfully disagree. I, for one, have long ago run out of patience for soceity having sympathy for the suspect(s). Our criminal justice system is broke & the only real justice these dirtbags get is street justice. One is perfectly within their right to, not only threaten, but actually use deadly force in defense of their life, so long as that can be articulated.

Yes, I know the craigslist ad was a joke...I still love it.

Anyway, getting back to the stolen Jeep...if I may offer some humble advice to everyone...buy a "Club" - type of device & use it....whether you've got a kill switch or not. They can't see your kill switch & will bust out a window, or tear your top...then destroy your ignition, only THEN find out they can't start it. If you've got a Club, your chances of them moving on to another vehicle go up exponentially.
