You would be surprised how much demand there is for isuzu and ud truck parts. Engine is worth 5k tranny is worth 1.5k, cab 1k etc. People steal ud rollbacks all the time where i am at just for the parts.

Hopefully insurance will cover everything?

I sure hope your insurance covers everything you lost.

That really stinks.

Were filing the claim. The truck will definitely be covered, they might question or negotiate covering what was in the truck but I have pretty good documentation on everything.

Thanks man. $500 cash reward if you come across any information that leads to an arrest or recovery.

I left my business card on a dump truck that was parked on the same street and the driver just called me. He said the last time he saw the truck was on Sunday July 8th at 6:30pm when he got off work. I discovered it missing at noon on Monday July 9th.

Thanks man, I appreciate that.

I got a call on Saturday at 2am from a dc police office to tell me that he found the truck abandoned on the side of a road, recovered it, and had it towed. The steering column is all jacked up, the radio is gone and the back locks were cut. Its safe in a tow yard in northeast DC, but I'm going to have it towed back to a dealership near me to repair the interior and wiring. The bad news is our insurance won't cover damage caused by theft, so I will have to pay for all the tow fees, storage and repairs out of pocket. I'm waiting to hear back from another insurance agent about the equipment(which is what I'm mainly concerned about). I only made two payments so far on the new 36" viking hydro and fs110R trimmer, and when you sign the loan agreement there is a clause that says you agree to pay the loan even if the equipment is stolen. Everything else was paid off, but it just sucks having to make payments on a mower you don't have anymore. I just need to wait to see how much insurance will cover on the equipment.
