That won't stop them from dragging it up onto a flatbed though.

I've heard this is the preferred method of choice for cars that are getting chop shopped now. Nobody blinks an eye at a tow truck today with all the repos and stuff going on, but messing with door locks and wires is a little more suspicious...

Best way to not get a truck stolen buy a police boot for the wheels(they may strip it and take 3 wheels) but the truck cant be towed without damage.

There are plenty of ways to get that boot off. I watched my buddy in Denver air his tire down, drive forward about a foot, boot slipped right off.. Scratched the inside of his wheel but who cares since you can't see that part anyways.

Stolen

Sorry to hear about the theft. Put a Ravelco on my 2008 TRD Sport a couple of months after I got it. Researched and found not one vehicle stolen equipped with one. Usually people will be pretty ticked if they spent a bunch of money on a security device that didn't work...at least I would. No negative stuff anywhere on the web about Ravelco. I live in a fairly secure place but anytime the truck is parked, the plug is on my pocket. The thief can have a key, computer to swap, or anything else he wants but time enough to defeat it. All the connections are under the hood. Short of a tow truck, mine goes nowhere without me.

Cutting the wheels all the way one direction would require they break the steering lock/ignition. Sounds like they didn't do that in your case. I would feel violated as you do. Hope the new ride you find stays secure. Just my two cents on what I think works. Check out the Ravelco.com web site. May or may not be for you. My niece had her Civic stolen twice in the Phoenix area. Guess just about everybody knows someone with a theft story.
