WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen yellow Jeep Cherokee

This one-of-a-kind vehicle has been stolen:

Its owner emailed this morning to say the 2001 yellow Jeep Cherokee was stolen last night between 8:30 and 11 pm at the West Seattle Health Club lot. Its unique components include front steel bumper with winch, 32-inch mud-terrain tires, and 15-inch black American Racing rims; its owner says this is the only yellow Jeep Cherokee you’d see in this area. Plate is CAS1799. We don’t have the police report number yet but will add when we get it; call 911 if you see this vehicle.

    Easiest car in America to steal. I have one. So worth it to invest in a club and a killswitch. I even have a GPS tracker hidden on mine.

    These folks in Utah would beg to differ on the “one of a kind” nature of this Jeep.  https://youtube.com/c/MattsOffRoadRecoveryhope you find your Jeep soon. :)

      Matt’s was repainted to yellow.  Jeep did sell a few XJs in “solar yellow” from the factory, but they were only produced at the very end of the model run.

    Condolences to the owner.  Cool rig.  Looks like a twin to the banana!  Wasn’t there another Cherokee of similar vintage stolen a month or so ago?  Did the owner of that one ever get it back?

    I believe there’s a 2nd 2001 “Solar Yellow” Cherokee sport.  In 2018, I sold mine to a couple living in North Delridge.  Unless they’ve moved or sold it, it’s still in West Seattle.  (It’s not this one as mine had a sunroof.)

    My 2001 Cherokee was stolen from First Hill last week. Jeep theft seems to be going around… 

Sorry, comment time is over.
