Anti-theft measures

I need to know some anti-theft measures for these trucks.

Sadly there was a loss in the family, my Uncles crew cab was stolen.

My little cousin had to go in for surgery and they planned on taking both vehicles and his truck was stolen.

so I am scared cause that is 6 trucks I have heard of in 3 weeks. what can I do to prevent them from stealing other than buckshot buckshot is messy and possibly hurts the truck to.

I bought a rear door handle for $68.00 at the local ford dealer, and removed the keyhole, and exterior door locking mechanism COMPLETELY. I would rather have to call someone to open the truck with a slim jim, that have someone open it with a screwdriver. It was about a 1 hours job total.

I hate to say this, but since my truck is a little more difficult to break into I also try to park next another SD with a keyhole.... .... It is bad, I know, but when it comes down to it I would rather someone else lose thiers than I lose mine ..... ....

Hope this helps!

Bob~!

I have good insurance. It sounds crapy, but if someone wants it they can take it, nobody pays anymind to car alarms these days.

I ain't talkin car alarms I am talkin things that disable my vehicle and something mounted in the truck that lets me know where my truck has gone and how fast it was moving to get there.

I have good insurance to and so does my uncle but I love my truck its not a king ranch, lariat, or a Harley. Its a 2003 6.0 with low miles. you can't get that whistle any where else but seriously an insurance company would not give **** for my truck. I also have plans to turn it into a one off truck.

You can get a custom chip with a disabling setting, then hide it under the dash. and you may want to look into something like lowjack.

Couldn't you put an on/off battery disconnect switch on the power line to the starter? Mount it under the hood, and onlly you would know it's there. You'd just have to remember to turn it off every night.

I had a nova in high school that I wired a switch to the hot lead of the distributor.... you might do that to a wire on the ECU. they also make "Jimmi Jammers" they go inside the door and stop the locks from getting busted in.
