Unfortunately my F350 is too tall and long to fit in the garage so it has to sit in the drive way. Like you guys I'm paranoid about my truck not being in the driveway when I get up.
I lost my 78 F250 4x4 to a thief. I remember my son asking me "Dad did you lone your truck to someone?" Still makes me sick thinking about it. I eventually got it back- with a $10,000 repair estimate. It had a one-of-a-kind alarm custom built. Never did find out how they took it.
To keep my truck safe at home it has a Stealth remote kill switch- won't even turn over. Automatically sets when you turn off the motor. A Marksman Extreme alarm system- has a remote with a screen like a cell phone that shows you what part of the truck is being screwed with, the remote sounds an alarm and works up to 2 miles. Just remember to keep it close when you're in the house. The alarm shuts everything down, doors, tail gate, camper shell door are all wired, tilt alarm, glass break sensor, screamer siren inside the cab, another siren under the hood. And to top it off a heavy Master Lock club. If my truck is home it has a Covercraft Weathershield cover on it. That's not to say it will never be stolen but it will kicking and screaming when they try and take it.
I was thinking of putting a hydraulically driven rusty spike in the drivers seat to be operated by a pressure switch because of losing my F250. Kind of like a quite IED, except for the thief screaming. Only have to replace the drivers seat upholstery.
