Stolen 4x7 semi portable from Lake Ann near Howard Lake, MN

5 posts in this topic

Went to pick up my house today and someone had beat me to it. Talked to a few people that were out and sounds like the *((*&&(* were out this last weekend (2-21) after the snow. Mine is a green canvas flip up style with a 2'x3' spear hole and three 12" round holes. Ends are grey with white trim. Only had my DNR# on it-220-971-378. Just built it this year and I don't have a picture. If anyone sees it please call me at 952-270-3526. Thanks.

When was the last time you were out there? I was out there the weekend before last and saw a house that looked like what you descibed on its side away from the other houses. It looked like it had been blown over and half across the lake by the wind. I didn't see anyone messing with it though. Did you check around the shorline to see if it may have blown to shore?

I was out last Wednesday to get it and it had tipped over after that thaw but was frozen in. I went back out yesterday since we had the warm up. I was hoping it might have just blown away too so I drove the whole shorline but no luck. Same looking tire tracks were next to it as the ones that were next to another house that was broken into. Filed a report with Wright County and am watching [YouNeedAuthorization] daily. Guess I should have busted it out last week.

Thats a shame, these people are despicable. I hope you get it back. I will keep a look out for it.

Another distinguishing feature is that it has two lexan skis on the door end. Looks like plexi-glass. About 8" wide by 6' long and curved at the top. I know it's not an ice castle or anything worth a lot but it still grinds on me.

Thanks for looking.

    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.    
    • After doing a little looking there are a lot of options to these things. Anyone know how that new V6 compares to the in line 6? Some of the stuff I would like is the bigger tires and because I would consider putting a plow on it a lower rear end gear. The Dana 44 rear axel would be nice and would want a hard and soft top. I'm in no hurry to get one so Ill wait till the right one comes around. There are a lot of them out there that never leave the tar. More options in the later models as far as transmissions to. So it also comes down to how much I want to spend on one and how late of a model to buy. Sure don't want to spend 35K on a new one.
    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....
