I have been looking for it when I drive around green hills and hillsboro village, But so far I've seen nothing. Maybe it was some Edge hill kids who didn't know how rare it was and needed a quick ride? Do happen to live of belmont because that's were i have seen it in the past, and edge hill isn't far away, I go to hillsboro so i'll keep an ear out for people trying to sell the car/parts

On a 2nd note I wasn't going to install lojack, but after hearing about this in nashville I've changed my mind.

Hope you find your baby, and I'll keep my eyes out for you

Sorry to hear about your loss. For EVERYONE'S information, Viper offers an 2-way alarm that will page you if your rig is jacked with as long as you are in range. I keep the alarm remote, flashlight, and my 45 next to my bed.

Christian Beck had his 110 stolen. I suggested that he start rollin down all the local logging roads and days later that is exactly where the cops found it. Defenders are a rare beast which makes them hard to chop and turn. Most D's will have the basics stripped and the rest of the rig abandoned. The more rare the rig, the more likely a perp. will be caught with parts. Keep checking Craig's List, Ebay, and other spots. But if I were you, I'd be doing some driving down logging roads with a 12 guage. I actually had a friend who did exactly that and came across the perp's mid strip. Walked up to them and clocked one of them with the butt of the shotty, then held them at gunpoint till the cops rolled up.

Good luck man

Smile Found!!!!

Friends, my baby is back! Metro Nashville PD called me on January 8th (exactly 30 days) to say that she was in an impound yard. I rushed right over there to see her. She was listed as an abandoned vehicle and towed out of an apartment complex. Apparently someone at the complex called Metro between the 8th and the 18th. The officer who responded simply put an abandoned vehicle sticker on the windshield and called it a day. Didn't run the tags so they didn't know that it was stolen. So then she sat there until Jan 7th when the wrecker picked her up for being abandoned! ARGH!!!!

Overall, she's in really good shape. I can't beleive the theives were dumb enough to just steal my AV system and two of my IPF trail lights! They even left 4 other lights! IDIOTS!!! The interior is a mess as you can see. The only 'mechanical' damage that I could determine was that there was a vacuum leak in the intake manifold (have had the same problem before, probably a hose with a hole in it) and the brakes felt really soft like there was some air in the hoses. She's at the local dealer getting the interior patched up and then back to the electronics store to replace the AV system installation.

Thanks again for everyone who sent me emails and encouragement. I really appreciate everyone trying to help out. Hopefully you'll be seeing me in her on the trail sometime soon!

That is excellent news, I have been watching the shit out of mine every since I read that yours was stolen. I have even called my insurance company to find out how much I would get if mine disappeared. I found out that I would lose in a bad way. Still havn't figure out what to do about that, but that is another thread.

Scott,

Could you enlighten us on how things were handled with your insurance company? Did they send you a check for what the truck was worth? Did they try and stick it to you?

And how have they handled things now that the truck has been found and returned to you?

Congratulations on getting it back... Wouldn't it be nice if they still hung people for stealing horses or trucks? :-)

Hope to see you on a trail or two,

Scott

Hope to see you on a trail or two,
I have Progressive and in the beginning of this odessey I would've told you that they've handled it great. Literally, the day that I got the call from the cops that they found her, I had already left a message with my claims adjuster asking him for a total for the replacement value. I estimated that they would go with a high NADA value, and I have receipts for almost all of my extras. I expected to get pretty much what I needed to try and find another Arles Blue SW and re-equip it with the same stuff. Conversations that we'd had previously left me feeling like that wasn't impossible.

SINCE they've found it, I've grown very wery of Progressive. I had to make the arrangements to have her towed to the shop to beging repairs because all of the local claims people were out of the office that day. I had to arrange for the estimates with the shop and make sure that they knew exactly what was expected. I also had to recheck with the shop to make sure that parts had been ordered and repairs were underway. My claims adjuster has not been very communicative since this process has shifted from replacement to repair. I'm hoping that this changes quickly, as I will not hesitate to drop this policy after the repairs are complete. I have several vehicles and have been a customer for nearly 10 years.

No matter what, I intend to install a Lojac system on her ASAP and I will be getting a rider to make sure that everything gets sorted if this were to ever happen again. The stress of all this was unbearable!

I actually HOPE that whoever stole her the first time tries to come back around. They will find a very different situation.

Scott,


As far insurance in TN goes. Get Farm Bureau, it's worth it.

Congrats on getting your D90 back.

Good news, at least mostly. Sorry about the damage and the stress... at least you got it back in repairable condition.

My brother's crappy little VW was carjacked - with him in the car - gun-to-head. Eventually they let him go, but the car was found, 3 weeks to the day later. The gun man was in the car, dead, gray matter on the opposite door - someone carjacked him and he said no, I guess.

Irrelevent story, sorry, except to say, hey - your D is back and it could have been oh-so-much worse.

As a Defender owner I find that it is best to ask your insurance company to inusre your vehicle for a "said" amount. Yes your rates are higher....but you can atleast replace what you have in the vehicle. My insurance company was more then willing to insure the vehicle for 40K. Just a thought

I have safeco and they are insuring mine at a "declared" value of $31k for only about $30 more per year. I had to initiate this and negotiate a bit but I think its worth it.
