Hey guys. I'm really hoping that one of you photo shop gurus can help with this. My buddy was broken into and lost about $5000 in tools. He got them on his trail cam coming and going but the lights make the plate illegible. It looks like a late 60s early 70's dodge with a homemade gate. Pretty distinctive. This is a long shot but I the hope the talent in here and a deep seeded hatred for thieves can get a plate number.

Thanks All.

My first impression is maybe a 70s Chevy?

Not a whole lot I can do with the photo unless there is something more high resolution.

Not sure what's on the back of the truck? Lumber or ladder rack? Some kind of tall gate or trailer?

I looks like an old dodge with a ramp on the back, like the landscape guys use. It's a 70's-80's truck for sure.

I'd post a lot of pics locally and offer a reward, someone will recognize that truck with the gate on the back.

late 60's early 70's dodge?....maybe late 70's but more than likely late 80"s early 90's dodge, if I was to take a guess I would say a 1986 to 1993 ram 250 with the drivers side front parking light out. I see you are in canada so maybe their models were different.

87 Ford ranger in the pic I posted. Looks similar

Looks to be a single cab older dodge, may also be a Chevy. It also resembles a 2x Ranger in a few ways. Split window in the back, square tubing ladder rack (Looks homemade) behind the cab. With two posts that stick up more than any I have ever seen. Left front running light is out. Very distinguishable ramp off the back. Rectangle pass side mirror. There are no two trucks like this.

This guy is some kinda handy man or something. If he is local you will see his truck again one day. I would also make the LEO's aware of this truck. They account for a lot of eye balls.
Please keep us posted.

We do think it's local. Going to keep an eye on Kijiji and I'm going to tour around google streetview to see if I can find the truck. It a small rural community but a tone of area to look at.

I think it's a Ranger. However if you measure the wheel track you can quickly rule in or out a full size truck. The driver side taillight lens looks to be broken.

If you crank down the brightness and up the contrast on the frontal pic, you can get a look at the license plate. There's just not enough resolution in the image though. Also, the gate runs right in front of the license plate.

Pretty sure that ain't a ranger, looks like a Chebby to me.

I was not anywhere close to the area so don't even think about my name

Well I think it's got a utility bed on it. The cab though with round lightsand smaller rear window says power wagon.

Agreed. This is definitely the model of the truck in the photo. Hope these idiots get caught. Maybe they will be caught doing another stupid heist like this.

The angles on the sides slopes to the middle top more than any other truck rear.

Ramp gate on a pickup truck. Thieving machine right there.

Put a bait listing up-
wanted : 70's Chevy truck for a restoration project. Top $$$ paid.
Worth a shot. Use a postal code from another town to not be obvious.
I've got a bait ad up myself right now.

Effing hate thieves man. Such losers. Hope you catch him

i agree. thats a setup to back up to stuff and steal it. nail those guys and you will probably solve a lot of thefts in that region.

Nice of them to shut the gate as they were leaving. Probably pull a nice set of prints off the gate.

What part of Canada?

That sucks and good luck. I wish this instead had been yet another MIA throttle body debacle.
