    Avalanche Engineering \"Bruiser\" STOLEN! Keep your eye out for parts.

    That's what was just passed down the grapevine to me. Evidently someone started it up and drove it over the fence last night. This was in Denver so it may not have gone very far.
    I know this probably falls under general chit chat but time's a wastin' on getting the thing back so if anyone sees it, call the cops. We should keep an eye out for the parts too, it's hard to imagine anyone keeping it whole since it's so recognizable so if you see funny looking parts selling for cheap, keep it in mind too.

    There is a post over at the PBB in the 4x4 forum. Some links to some pictures. This thing is totaly one off. Custom hand made rear axle with rear steer. pumpkin is made by hand even not a cast peice with a drop out carrier.
    Once you have seen this thing you will understand how STUPID it was to steal it. Paint will not make this truck blend in. it will be stripped if it isn't found soon.

    Here's a link to Clif's post on the Coloroado4x4 board; the thread contains a pic of the Jeep, the rear axle, and a list of special components (including the Atlas serial #).

    Dang Stephen,

    It sounds like someone is collecting shop rigs or something. Rocky Road in utah here had thier shop rig ripped too. I'ld be slepping in yours with a shotgun if it were mine! :-)

    Good luck finding it

    It was one of two things, it was stolen for a quick joy ride and will be found out on some trail or a big canyon or something else, or it was stolen to get shipped overseas. That is a very big market and once out of the states you can forget it. They might not even paint it or try to conceal it if it was stolen for someone in another country.
