Be Careful Guys

Family friend had his '05 KR stolen out of his driveway. He lives in a gated neighborhood. They cut the chain at the back of the fence. Jimmied the lock. Got in. Rolled it into the street and started it up. They got it 3 miles out of the neighborhood and took out all the seats and door panels. $14,000 to fix it. Police say it was done by professionals who had an order for KR leather. Figured I would just let you guys know to be careful. BTW, this happened in Pearland, TX, a suburb of Houston.

Yea, insurance screws you one way or another. But I'm pretty sure he will be getting another PSD. Probably a loaded KR 6.4. It just sucks because he doesn't like to use tuners and stuff like that so if he doesn't bite the bullet on doing a DPF delete, he's going to get horrible mileage.

Houston and southern California seem to be the PSD theft capitals of the US. I don't know exactly what the stats are, but I've heard Houston mentioned in a lot of different forums for stolen trucks. Home Depot and Lowes are favorite target spots.

With that being said, I would like to sit in the parking lot in another vehicle with a poison dart gun watching my own truck.

screw the poison dart gun, go for the .50 cal Destert eagle or 00 Magnum 12ga buck shot. These idiots might as well be called urban militia, b/c that's what they are and they have more rights than us... F'k that. They kill your whole family and get a 10 second fly by media coverage. You defend yourself and you'll get nailed to the cross every night on the news. Sucks what happened to his truck... I'd be calling/visiting local upholstery shops hehe.

Yea, I read an article in the paper about this. They are wanted for 3 reasons. They can hold a lot of people and cargo, they are easy to steal, and they have big tanks for long trips. These trucks are being used by drug cartels and human smugglers to make runs back and forth across the border.

Fantastic. but remember... they're here to do jobs we won't. I tell ya the Repubs dropped the ball on fixing that horrible border problem. And if the white house gets painted black (hey it's what "Luda" said) we're all screwed. might as well give them the keys to our truck and house.
