    With all these trucks getting stolen I was just wondering if anyone had the Lo Jack system? My 75 will be done soon (I will post pics) and I was just thinking of ways to protect it. I've got a hidden starter kill also I bought the Die Hard security battery (very cool battery). Was thinking of getting Lo Jack but its expensive has anyone used it or had experiences with it does it work? I live in Los Angeles so I'm a little worried.

    Malachi: The system works best if you live in a area where the Police have a lot of the receivers and you live in a area that is without obstructions like mountains. The patrol car mounted receivers can only pick up at approximatly 2 miles of signal but it does work.

    Its time to lock them in!

    It seems kind of expensive, considering they track the vehicle once it is reported stolen. Chances are your not going to notice it gone for an hour or so, while you are at work, asleep, etc. By then, there is probably a lot of damage done to it. I thin kthe money could be better spent on some more theft deterrnet things...like the sticker I saw at AutoZone the other day: "This vehicle protected by anit-theft sticker" j/k It sounds like the things you've done so far are good steps, still lots of switches you can install.
