Angry My FJ62 Stolen Last Night in Denver

Hey y'all. First time posting on Rising Sun. Used to be active on TLCA forum about a decade ago when I got my rig and I posted the below there this AM and someone helpfully recommended posting here too.

My white FJ62 was stolen from in front of my house in Denver last night. Details:
-CO Plate# 341 OBA
-Black roofrack
-Thule snowboard/ski racks mounted to roofrack
-'Mudrack Improved' sticker on the rear bumper
-Slightly raised stance from 32 x 10" BFGs
-Some rust on the rear wheel wells
-And it's got a 12 HT diesel from a Proffitt's conversion




Please email me with any spottings in the Denver metro region or on sales forums in the event someone knows what they have and it's not just a joyride. Suggestions for other places to post are welcome.

I know this is a great community and am hoping I get lucky.

Will

Yikes! I've been parking my 62 on the street the past couple of weeks near 30th and Yates - a few short blocks away. The past few days I've noticed a lowered red dodge pickup stopped in our alley, its occupants acting somewhat suspiciously. Three or four high school age white boys looking guilty sitting in it both times I've seen them. Colorado personalized license plate is DRRY. Looks like Bart will be parked back in the garage for a while.
Sorry to hear about your situation. Will keep my eyes and ears open and thanks for the heads up.

Wow, stealing a diesel converted 62 doesn't sound like a random theft. Best on luck recovering it - hope it was heavily insured.

Assuming they knew it did. Does it take anything special to start a diesel Cruiser, like waiting for glow plugs or anything?
