I saw this guy walk out of his car with his steering wheel in hand. I was like... wtf? Funny stuff. Alarm for me. I guess if worse case scenario I get Low Jacked activated. Hope it doesn't come to that.

Well... There would definitely not be much of the guy who is stealing it!

But... There wouldn't be much of your truck either...

^^^ Are you the one who bombed my truck the other day?

I have you know I had to go wash the explosives residue off my paint after the dust settled!

There's not much you can really do. Get an alarm, park under light and by the front doors of the shops you're visiting when you can, and get good insurance. If a knowledgable criminal really wants your vehicle, he's going to be able to take it without much problem.

There are also GPS tracking systems, for recovery purposes.

Mine has the factory security keys just as all the v6s do. I am sure someone somewhere knows how to defeat the system, but by then they would just bring a tow truck or trailer. You could put in a fuel pump kill switch to slow them down I suppose. I don't think alarms do much unless you can hear it yourself and run outside.

Why kill an innocent lamb for its blood to smear when you get some on a monthly basis from your wife or gf?

I just read in 4wdtoyotaowner magazine that Grant makes a removable steering wheel for 2nd gen toyota. I wouldnt risk not having my air bag over my truck getting stolen.

This is my vote!!
