Odd.

He's in possession of stolen property and still walks. What ever happen to "guilty by association?"

Besides you could post his name, ebay handle, & address on every LR BBS you can subscribe. At least we'd all be wise to any future BS he might push.

I tried to buy the bumper on ebay the other day. After emailing roverhybrids to see if it was one of their bumpers, they responded saying that the bumper was stolen and the thief had been caught.

I'm with you Ron, it would be worth the jail time. Or maybe be a little stealthy and the cops might not look so hard for his assailant.

Batter up!!

That's f.kn horrible .. thank god the truck was found, and considering strip jobs, the damage is relatively minimal.
Coincidentally, I have also been checking out internal auto GPS systems, the type that hooks up permanent, and lets you know where the truck is at all times. I figure t would be a good way to immediately have the authorities locate the truck and bust the little pr.ks.

How bout reporting him to Ebay, as selling stolen goods? If enough complaints go in, they might discontinue his membership?

if you are worried about one getting stolen pull the fuel pump relay. I think only a hand full of people would be able to diagnose it. I hope the thieves get in big trouble.

better than a fuel pump relay, ive got something that would stop a theif dead. I think the D90/110 has an inertia switch under the hood, i know my D2 does. I spliced into those wires and made an "inertia cutoff switch" using a covered toggle switch under some fabric in my glovebox. Kudos to any theif that would be able to find that switch and figure out its why the car isnt starting
