Makes my blood boil for you! I have a '07, (which is new to me this year after not having a wheeler for 15 years) and having it jacked is the last thing I think about when in the hills in Central Wa. This really disappoints me, I will keep an eye out for sure!

Had a burglary some years ago and through a strange series of events found some of the booty.  Took three days of pleading to get the police to go so I could get it back.  I am certain it is much worse now.  Be careful out there

Definitely a scumbag move
My buddy used to have property near Liberty
They came on the gated private ground
Swiped all kinds of stuff
Got in the rv that was parked there
TP towels cleaning supplies batteries and propane tanks

Giving this a bump with a new season of hunters in the woods coming up. The most identify feature is we put in a manual fan switch under the fuel switch. If someone finds it or sees it id give them a cash reward, i unfortunately cannot afford a replacement and its put a damper on my hunting season. Thanks to those on the look out

Bumping because I wish I still had it. there is a manual fan switch on the left hand side. Definitely not a factory thing, please keep an eye out.

We are still keeping an eye out for it. I took a screenshot of the picture so I have it for quick reference if I do ever see it on the trail. Man I hate thieves, hopefully they get what’s coming to them one day

I think the only way this stops is if there's enough bait to bring them out, catch in the act, then have a good talk with them. They obviously don't care about law enforcement, with the lack of, or the current court systems that favor criminals.

Anyone ever attached one of those tracking devices to their property? If so what kind?

I haven't tried any of the trackers but would seriously consider it if I had an ATV.

Pretty cheap but you would have to recharge the battery on this one often.  Knowing me I would try to wire it to the vehicle's power.

$20 a month on top of the purchase price.  Might be better options, that's just the one I saw.

There are other trackers that use bluetooth but you would obviously have to be pretty close to it.

If they were only being stolen when used it wouldn't be bad to pay for a month during hunting season but it sounds like a bunch disappear out of back yards so you would have to pay all year.

Looks like a sound investment,if your gonna be away from your ATV for hours and leaving it. :tup:
