STOLEN: BJ60 in Abbotsford, BC

***RECOVERED***

Hi all, just thought I would send out a message to the cruiser heads, that my 1983 FJ60(converted to 3B/5spd) was stolen last night at 8pm-9pm from Ethical Addictions coffeehouse in Abbotsford, BC. It is Tan in colour and is a very clean truck from Colorado. Specs are:

Stock Tan colour (very clean and almost rust free)
stock chrome rims
33x10.5 mud terrains(siped)
OME lift susp.
Aussie style mirrors
Thule roof rack (no rocket box on it currently as seen in the bottom photo)
Other than that the exterior is stock
323,000km on the odometer



I am sad but you never know where it will show up. However I just filled up with 75l of diesel and last tank got 700km, so they could have driven quite far.

Thanks
Joel

Really sorry to hear it. Don't give up hope too quick, they do often seem to turn up after a short time.
You should post this down on the Coastal Cruisers section too.

Hope you get it back unscathed soon.

Five Land cruisers stolen in the last 4 days

Hi everyone,

Just heard there is a new rash of stolen land cruisers in the langly or abotsford area. I guess yours was one of the five stolen so my guess is this thief is selling them for parts. Keep your eyes peeled and put in a way to track it. I am going to set up my gps tracking device in the event somone steels it.

That really sucks, man! Mine 84 bj60 is not original like yours but I would really miss it if it was taken. I can't imagine anyone having the gall to drive it unless they were keeping it out in the woods for their camp or something. Please tell me that you had an appraisal and insurance that will cover your loss…

Don't lose hope…

Thanks guys for all your concern and keeping your eyes open. I dont know where it was found yet (cause I forgot to ask due to the excitement!), but the truck was recovered on April 5. As told to me by police, no apparent damage, but possible loss of goods from the inside.

man your lucky. Thankfully you had no damage. I may suggest a trex stearing wheel lock is in order or mabey a way to track it via gps system.

a way to track it via gps system.

I'd like to do this but in order to do this you need to subscribe to a service and so far no one can tell me if that service will return a location if it is outside of the USA or Canada. I know GPS is worldwide but will the service see a location outside of the USA and Canada as an error or not?

Does anyone know for certain?
