    We are offering a $1000 reward on the trailer, with or with out the police being involved, The officer who we were buying it from has a been friend of mine for about 25 years, or since we were 5 years old.

    Good luck, sorry to hear about your trailer being stolen. By the looks of that truck, it shouldn't be too difficult to find.

    I don't know, we are in redneck country, We have seen about 5 trucks just like it in less than a week. The good news is the police in the neighboring counties are stopping any trucks that meet the description. iIt has been painted and had the vin # ground off it by now. It helps to have lots of friends with the police.

    u think the police could check the rmv- to see who has a registered
    truck like that in the general area---
    i know in my area, you hardly ever see 93- older dodge rams
    any more

    Yes the latest update is that over the Thanksgiving holiday, someone stole our 2001 f450, it has had a transmission problem and some times wouldn't shift into the highest gear, so it was parked in our outside lot. We have moved everything we own to our farm for now and our waiting on the police to come through. There is a cash reward for info leading to the recovery of either the truck or the trailer or both. $1000 per is what i was thinking.

    Everybody in Kentucky keep their eyes open for the truck. It won't go faster than about 50 mph.

    You might want to consider security cameras or something. That's a significant investment gone, although I'm sure you already know that. You can get yourself set up with all weather outdoor cameras that see up to 100 feet in the dark and a recording box for under a few thousand dollars last I checked.
