So last friday I was cruising my way through my local U Pull It back to the Isuzu section and stumbled upon a Grand Cherokee that looked an awful lot like my old one.

I started looking it over and finally found a few clues that told me it was mine! I had the Jeep about 5 years ago and traded it in on a truck I no longer have. I have seen it driving around a few times after I got rid of it but I never thought I would see it in a JY.

Everything I had done to it was pulled already. The wheels and tires (except for one), springs, shocks, K&N air intake, speakers, exhaust, etc.

Has anyone ever seen their old vehicle in a junkyard? I was absolutely floored to see it in that condition!

Before

Thought I had a pic of when I went back to the factory wheels and BFG ATs but I guess not.

After

Oh yea, I've done that double take. Mine was a bit more painful and frustrating, but thats because it ended up in the yard against my will. It was my last Impulse, my 1989 Turbo that I had taken apart to rebuild the engine. I ended up having to move halfway through the tear down and had to leave it sit in the car port for 3 weeks. Some jerk of a neighbor called it in as dead storage, even tho it had fresh tags and all, because it wasn't in running condition. I didn't know about it until I went back to get the car and it was gone and another neighbor told me about it. Here in Douglas County they have the legal right to tow a vehicle out of private property if it is in obvious non-running condition (which is bull****).

Anyway, a week later I went to the local Pick-a-part to grab something for my daily beater car and there it was, stripped to hell, up on blocks.

I still have a sour taste in my mouth because they took BOTH engines I had for the car when they towed it, which WAS illegal, but obviously that case hasn't gone very far with this state....

That is horrible! I would have been livid!

I wasn't upset to find my old Grand in the yard, just couldn't believe the shape it was in. Had a lot of fun in that Heep! :D
