while it is likely not yours, this story could be related...

i saw one advertised on kijij in mississauga about a month ago..and was a little suspicious when i spoke to the seller..definately tweaked me that it was stolen...obviously not yours, but check the ads...im sure it is very common as they do come off easy...this guy was too slick...basically told me the cover he had will fit any year ram...i mean im sure they are all close, but come on...he wanted to kow what year mine was and told me he guaranteed it would fit and he would deliver the cover to me...45 minutes away from where he lived. he claimed it was brand new, taken off his parents truck because it was the wrong size(brand new/wrong size/no exchange...BS)?...anyhow to say the leasti never contacted the seller back due to my suspicions, and he never hounded me to come and get it...never heard a peep back...very strange for kijiji sellers.

instead, i purchased and i just installed a truxedo low pro qt...im not entirely sure if it is a serial number or not, but i do have some sort of number stamped on the underside of the canvas...might be something to look into if you find the ad for your stolen cover...and maybe your receipt shows a serial number...im sure there is some sort of number to ensure compliance with the various different length warranties on these covers.

as an aside, as hard as it is to believe, i will tell you an amazing theft recovery story...

when i was 21, i had my 1989 honda CR250 stolen...all my gear and everything stolen right out of the garage, and the friggin dog didnt even hear it...i thought it was gone forever. one very little unique difference in my bike though. the oil filler screw was stripped, and i tried to retap it, frigged the shit out of the crankcase and had to use orange rtv to hold the filler screw in...i hated it when it happend, but as you will see...everything happens for a reason.

fast forward 6 months from thedirt bike theft...one night, i stayed over at my girlfreinds house and awoke in the morning to see that my 5.0 mustang was stolen....the insurance companay gave me a rental car to use until my car was recovered or i found a replacment ... shortly thereafter, my lovely grandma called me a few days after my car was stolen and asked me to go to mcdonalds for her(something i used to do all the time for her...she was the best!!!)...get this...for a pizza...remember mcdonalds pizza??? so i shit you not, there i am pissed off because im sitting waiting in the drivethru at mcdonalds because i have to wait for a friggin crappy pizza to cook for granny, and what do i see?!?! some @$$hole walking to 7-11 pushing a honda CR250 across the street from the very mcdonals i am at pushing my dirtbike..the orange rtv is as clear as day..like looking a the moon through a telescope!!

i bolted from the drivethru (without the pizza) and got my bike back...

SO...moral of the story...start looking at some used covers...i bet you'll find yours...and of course, if any of you guys are wondering, i did go back and get granny her pizza.
