Theft prevention..

Just curious In my last one (chevy) had a remote starter relay that would keep it from being jacked, well unless you knew about it and replaced the relay with another one.. So what would / did you do to make your F-250 theft proof?

That is a very interesting site and one heck of a claim, not one vehicle ever stolen with this device. It appears that our trucks are the number one stolen trucks around.

what he said, AND most of the SDs do not have the 'chipped' keys like the GM and Dodge vehicles do, easier to hotwire em!

I'm about to have the Ravelco put in mine. Have talked to several people that have them. Talked to a couple that wouldnt have their truck any more if it wouldnt have been for having one installed.

Now I wouldn’t know where to start splicing it in but I’ve seen some take a 15 pin computer bus and make this same setup for about $15 using all black wires. Sounds pretty simple if you know where to splice it in and hide a few ground wires in the mix to blow some fuses when they start cutting wires trying to hot wire it.
