Another F-250 Stolen



Just heard of another F-250 being stolen here in Houston.

Since we're in a prime spot for the smugglers stealing pickups to do their dirty work, I'm getting more and more concerned about parking my Powerstroke most anywhere, including at the house.

In surfing the web I came across the Cyclops anti theft device that is a plug-in relay that kills power to the starter and/or the Powertrain Control Relay (PCM). Take a look at it here.

Vandal Alert's "No-Start" Anti-Theft Relay

Anyone have any experience with the Cyclops? $129 seems reasonable if it works.

No Problem, us Texans are tough! We can handle it. We handle bad guys pretty good, too.
