DW says if you let him steal it you would get a new truck,,,,
Yeah, but the insurance company won't be paying for it. If you are like me and take very good care of your truck the money I would get from my insurance if my like new 2012 Chevy 3500HD dually (which I bought new) got stolen wouldn't even come close for me to go out and buy a new one...

Plenty of YT vids on how its done.

If a thief wants your truck...

Quit worrying about it. The insurance companies love talk on this subject because they can sell more profit making policies.

If you can't help yourself on the worry front, put in a couple of discreet kill switches in different locations so in the event they find one quickly, they will become frustrated and move on. Detection time is the killer for theft attempts.

Kill switches or not... if a determined thief wants your truck....

I must live in a nice place. I never take the keys out of any of our vehicles and don’t know where out house or shop keys are. I’m so thankful.

worry about your truck? heck, there are more important things to think about; what's for lunch, what time should I take my nap, and what's for dinner---some of the important things to think about.


You have insurance, stop worrying.

More than one time I have forced bad guys to cease and desist attempting to remove or destroy our property by the simple application of a very bright green laser pointed near their head. They run like the wind because they do not know what the laser is attached to.


But as to your truck my recommendation is a hidden kill switch or a Revelco.

The OP asked about prevention. Let's try to stay on that topic and not wander into retribution.

I think that if vipermanden does not have it figured out by now (50 days of posts)..... well the only other suggestion might be to remove any way to tow or start the truck and many have been suggested here. First time in ~15 years I've had a post dumped.

I had a couple mine dumped too, and I didn't discuss retribution... in point of fact I argued against it... I feel your pain. Probably have this dumped too, but I understand why they were.

Seems like all mine got "dumped" too, some times the truth can be spoken for it doesn't fit the mold.
