He came back from work a couple weeks ago and it was gone.

2000 Black Sahara TJ, DANA 44 front and rear, no swaybar, Atlas transfer, 6" lift, winch, no back seat (metal security box instead), and a broken CB antenna on the back tire mount.

Maybe someone out there knows something, maybe someone has seen something, but $1000 for its return, no questions asked.

He's just heartbroken that its gone and I'm hoping someone out there has seen something.

Look, maybe it was just taken for a joyride, maybe it's already in parts, but if someone knows something, hit me up.

Jeepers are the best people I know and we have to stick together.

Thanks. You can email me @ philip.spry@gmail.com or text me @ 480-241-7779.

Here's a video of him helping winch someone out of the lake. His jeep is the black one in the picture.

The black jeep in the middle doing the winching.

The guy moving the towels in that video is lucky his day didn't get ruined by a broken winch cable.

When the guy parked there, it was dry. Soon thereafter, the water came in and he was screwed.

Several other people with winches were there but wouldn't help. Stupid kids.

The irony, moving the towels holding down the cable in case it breaks, yet risking himself by standing there.

Sorry to hear about your bud's Jeep. Good luck with the recovery.

Yeah, he's brokenhearted.

This makes me unreasonably upset. What's the point in even having a winch if you're not going to use it to help people who are stuck?

That sucks about your buddy's TJ. If he gets it back in one piece, I can recommend a tracker that works pretty well.

It's a soft-top now with a giant metal box in the back, replacing the seats. Plus, the antenna snapped off, so only the mount is left.

Thanks for blowing it up.
