Door Handle Guards

Had my truck broken into last week and they went through the door handle. I have seen on here or at a parts house a metal plate or something that you can put behind your door handle to prevent thieves from breaking into your truck this way. Can someone point me in the right direction and about how much should I expect to pay for them?

I have heard of Jimmi Jammers. Here is their website.

Vehicle Security and Theft Prevention Devices

I have never used them before, so I have no idea. I just have heard lots of people talk about this product.

If you can live without use of a key in the front doors, just install rear door handles up front and use you keyless entry/keypad...

I put a back door handle on mine and removed the locking plunger rod from the truck altogether. May not stop someone, but JUST might be enough to discourage them, and make them break into someone elses ..... Mine was broken into when she was only 36 days old !!!

Sold the truck to help pay $1.5M in medical bills! Now I have a F150 6cyl that is slower and gets worse mileage

Most of the POS's that break into and steal our trucks are looking for the easy take...and most don't want to break the windows....

Literally about 15-20 seconds to steal a Superduty...
