Quickest way to disable truck

I have to leave my superduty and enclosed trailer for the weekend together at a show in London .. a few years back a few trucks and trailers were stolen from the parking area .. So I'm thinking how can I make it so my truck wont start? I know over per-cautious...not really, just wanna make sure when I go back in 2 days if its gone they had their work cut out for them...


looking for some thing easy to do but not easy to figure out in a parking lot when in a hurry .. if it was a gasser id just pull the rotor...lol

A big pile of dog doo doo next to the driver door will keep it from getting stolen.

Pull a few fuses; disconnect the batteries; Take the batteries out!; take the wires off the starter; disconnect the connectors on the tranny; drop one or both of the drive shafts; (if it's a manual) pull the shifter off; pull the connector for the fuel pump; take all the wheels off and leave it on blocks...

Those are just a few off the top of my head.

Something easy is wiring up a switch that disables power from the starter. Nothing but a $4 (or less) switch, a relay, and some wire.

Smile fool them

replace fuses with ones that are burned out, if the are missing they will just stick wire in to bypass if all fuses are there, then you got them stuck.

its Ontario's largest truck show they have people from all over the united states and Canada so they rent a huge lot where all the tow vehicles park and well its easy to rip off a truck if ya know what your doing.. they do have security but they cant stop and check every one coming in and out... looks like they wanted diesel trucks only though

Remove the power wire from the starter. Also buy a club for your steering wheel. I live in Tucson where auto thefts are very popular being so close to the border. I talked to a Tucson detective, he said he had never seen a vehicle stolen with the club on it. The thieves move to an easier target.
