Blue 1985 Toyota Pickup
« on: Nov 03, 2014, 05:26:03 AM »
First off, thank you for taking the time to read this.
On October 22nd my vehicle was stolen from my parents driveway in the city of Oakley, California.

Vehicle Info as it was last seen:
1985 Toyota Extended Cab Pickup
Color: Blue
License Plate Number: 7W16578
Engine: 4.3L Vortec (Chevy s10)
Lift: 6-8 Inches, Alcan Leaf Springs in the front, 63" Chevy leafs in the rear
Tires: 37" Pitbull Rockers on Black steel rims
Other Info: Bobbed bed, round tube bumpers, square rock sliders, dual transfer case, crossover steering, hydraulic ram assist, the oil pan is quite noticable as it is painted chevy orange, new gas tank (no dents and a silver aluminum color), Front axle truss, Grey Corbeau Bucket seats, Grey Inner Roll Cage, Winch on front with regular aluminum fair lead not a roller (although a roller was in the bed so it may have been swapped), later model wider rear axle so there are spacers on the front axles to even out the width, black grant steering wheel with a single .5" yellow stripe, under-carriage rock lights, removable square tubing mud flaps, the front reflectors have been converted into turn signals, and the rear tail lights have a new distincive euro-style, detroit lockers front and rear (they definitely pop and squeal around corners), and longfield axles front and rear.

Please keep your eyes peeled and thank you for all the help.

The following is a video of the theft:

This sucks watching somebodies rig being stolen.  I hope you get it back. 


After I had to fix my sticky ignition switch, and finding out how easy it is to swap them out, I'm doing some anti-theft systems.

Thanks everyone I really appreciate it. I've received a lot of help from fellow wheelers getting the word out there, I can only hope that with that with a little luck and all the good people out there that are now aware of the theft and the vehicle that someone will spot it.

Unfortunately I have received no reports in regards to my rig. That being said several chop shops have been located and shut down in California since its disappearance for which I am grateful to our first responders for. The most recent being in Richmond and police and Coast Guard are still searching the bay looking for vehicles. Attached are a few links to news articles regarding chop shops that have been discovered since my truck was stolen.

Just a reminder to everyone auto theft is an all to common occurance in California, if you have the means you should consider installing an anti-theft system in your vehicle. It would have been a small price to pay in comparison to the time and parts I put in the vehicle only to have it stolen.

It's been a long time and I had just about given up hope when a friend sent me a video of what he thought was my truck on the internet. Time and date unknown but it was seen on Coal Chute at Hollister Hills OHV park in California. Here is the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVPMSDHOyYo

If anyone has seen a vehicle that appears similar to this please contact the police department or let me know. Thank you.

I dont have facebook and it would not let me watch that video.  Could you not contact whoever posted the video to find out who had it or when it was posted?

It said the page was missing for me  :dunno:
RIP KYOTA

You can go through life being scared of the possible, or you can have a little fun and tease the inevitable.

Give a man venison, he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to hunt Blacktail, he'll be frustrated for life!

First off thank you everyone for keeping an eye out. A gentleman contacted me earlier stating that he was the owner of the truck in the video. He has been kind enough to provide me with some photos and it does not appear to be the same vehicle. I have passed on information I have received from several individuals to local detectives and they are looking into a few things but nothing solid yet. I'll keep everyone updated if anything turns up.
