JK FAIL!!

I posted this in the fail thread of Pirate, but it's too good to not post here!

Story I gathered from Facebook.
Drunk ass hat bebopped his 2016 jeep through the "360" trails, decided to drive on the bridge (stupid idea, 30' drop on the other end of the bridge so even if he made it he would have had to back all the way back across the bridge). Drunk stuper kicks in and he damn near slides off the bridge. He and friends walk out and tell a fellow jeeper his jeep is stuck on the bridge but isn't worried about it because it's not his favorite car. Tow truck comes to pull it out, gets stuck half way to it, and leaves. Next day the jeep is discovered by a member of North Texas Off Road Recovery (FB group). They post pics, people come up with plan to help, but can't get ahold of owner. FB post gets shared all over FB and bad people take advantage of it and go strip the jeep, taking the bumper, winch, seats, stereo, and parts off of the engine. A knuckle head helper person goes to try and get the jeep back on the rails of the bridge with out the owners permission, gets too late and he bails, but posts on FB that he tried. Owner finds jeep in pieces and calls cops... Now everyone who went near the jeep is in question and FB group had to close the post.












After Strip...

Probably too big to fit into whatever they were driving.

As for the owner... Do stupid shit, win stupid prizes.

It shouldn't be a high priority for the police, it wasn't his favourite car! (The insurance company who will probably be paying out if they cover it, on the other hand...)

Steering wheel and Airbag still look intact. Surprised wheels still there.

What a mess.....hard lesson to learn.

While the owner is an idiot and it's to feel too much sympathy for him, it still pisses me off seeing the Jeep stripped like that.

Regardless of what the driver did, what gives others the right to steal things and totally destroy that Jeep? I don't see it as some righteous dealing of justice. Mostly it just seems like assholes taking advantage of the situation.

I make a big assumption when I presuppose that 8 of 10 new Jeep owners are probably about as intellectually competent as a turnip.
There is a percentage of those that, once they get the new Jeep like all the cool kids are driving , realize that it is nothing like the lexus or fourrunner ride-wise and get rid of it however they can ; I got my JKU because of someone hating how it drove on a 120mile commute ( facepalm: my gain)...it happens.

This pictured route is, no offense - is not 'off-roading' in any sense I understand of the term ; first, it is clearly on a road. 2nd, it is a derelict,dilapidated (seemingly)80 year old ,back-road bridge .
It is / was likely intended for wagons and or tree/logging/farm trucks or tractors to pass across.
Even utterly zonked I would not feel compelled to try and drive ACROSS ( notice I didn't say "over") this.

This all makes for hilarious post-posting lulz , but I would be highly suspicious of this individuals motives ,were I an assessor or criminal investigator 'cause it simply reeks of trying to get some amount of money back through insurance claim by abandoning a vehicle then trying to concoct or providing what someone might think a great way to make it appear as-if it was vandalized while stuck.

(edit: notice how BigTB - no disrespect intended @BigTB - immediately got fired-up by the assholes that took advantage of the guy? That is the magic of victimization-play. Exactly what I presuppose the owner was hoping for.. it helps getting money back if you are victimized ; not so much if you are stupid. )

I call bullshit and if it is truly as described, thankfully the gene-pool-weakener that owned it is not representing Jeep owners any further.

Honestly, you're right, it does seem like a setup by the owner. Making a big stink, posting it online, then acting outraged when he returned to find it vandalized and calling the police; it all sounds fishy.

However, I do want to point out that I wasn't implying people took advantage of the guy. Like I said, I really find it hard to find sympathy for the owner. He is an idiot. But I personally know people who it seems like they almost look for an excuse to justify thievery and vandalism under the guise of "he had it coming." Like they almost hope for a mob type scenario so they can loot. That's all I was pointing out. I don't put victim status on the guy, I just hate when people steal or vandalize something, insurance has to pay for it, and everything ends up costing more for everyone.

As to the owner, I have a hard time believing he was supposed to be up on that bridge. Vandalism or not, he should have to pay any and all costs involved in removing his Jeep from that site (despite whatever state it is in when it is removed) and should be prosecuted if it was an attempt to defraud insurance (or if there were any other laws broken). But if the vandalism was done by strangers (and not by the owner or people he "encourage" to do so) who thought "F this guy, let's take/break his stuff", then I think they are idiots as well. Because ultimately they really aren't hurting him, they are just making a mess for the police and insurance to sort out.

good points , for certain; I ,too, cannot deny associating - for reasons best left blanketed by over 2 decades of time - with shady characters who were set to rip or rob someone and anyone blind at a moments notice and I'll just say it ; drugs bring that out splendidly in humans . Desperation and politics go hand in hand with the devil so it's just nature of life. You're also correct that if they just did it for evil kicks , that's mess d up (" We Are The Warriors!!" Heh) ; I am betting it was driven by the first people that posted about it. I misundtstood ya ; I understand now that you didn't man to imply they ripped him off but it certainly isn't out of one of the many possibilities...

Personally it's really really hard for me to comprehend taking a socket and ratchet with other tools all the way there then undoing seats and opening someone else's engine bay then the time to take , say , a starter off WHEN IT ISNT YOURS AND YOUD BE HURRYING and turn packing it all out ....it has to be another jeep owner since we'd be the only ones that'd consider it valuable ...even if I were driven by addiction or evil I wouldn't wanna go thru that effort level for jeep or wallet ..

of course there's the elephant in the room ; I can't be the only one imagining a Sasquatch setup with Sirius crankin' beneath a pine tree and nice Rubicon seats in a little circle and the side mirrors on a tree , little Bigfoot Jr. grunting happily in a new tire swing and shit.. . as believable as the reported story!

lock the doors that can be removed at the hinge by anyone with a specific sized torx socket ? Drain plug popped out and a couple straightened coat hangers have been reported methods of access ( I am a security software engineer ,not being jerk ) ; better than locking jeep doors is a lockbox ( where r u Al Gore?) or at least glovebox locked or a tuffy box. Also, packing heat is always a good idea as long as you practice responsibly , legal self protection laws and firearm usage. Anyway, not to Debbie downer but don't be fooled by thinking your door locks are safe . Welcome to JKOwners

<edit1: notice I said nada about softop cutting; the post was about a hardtop so I kept that as considered victim ...that goes without saying...

My wife had a '91 when we met in '92 and bless her for having two Replacement Spice soft tops crackheads would cut into to take her jewish american princess radio out.
more than once, lmao.


so ask me how I know softops are bingo easy if they see something they want better to not keep anything you'd miss or regret in it


lockbox!!...>



<<edit2 : looking at picture #1 , how did he proceed even that far ? The trac of the Jeep isn't as wide as the spanse of bridge with the closest pairing of length runner boards ;
IOWs , it should only be possible for that vehicle to be where it appears to be if some of those track straps - that run down to other side left and right that tires would have to run upon -had to have fallen away as it wars driven on , right?..there are some missing that fell down I guess ? >>

My $.02:

The owner/driver definitely deserves to be sterilized for his dumbassery, but . . .

the tweekers and/or shitbags that stripped the Jeep need their oxygen privileges revoked.
