Been searching the site for catalytic converter protection options for most of the night. My job isn't in the best part of town and some folks have had their cats stolen in the parking lot so I know it is a matter of time before they come back and make a go at mine. The truck is a CA model so if it does get taken I will need to replace it with a CA specific cat ($$$$$$) or else it won't pass inspection here in AZ.
The only solution I have found so far is the cat clamp or skid plates.
If I go the skid plate route it sounds like I need to get more than 1 since they seem to bolt to themselves from front to back to get the protection I need for the converter. Is that correct or does someone make a plate that will bolt up to my truck (2011 DC) and cover this area specifically.
Has anyone come across anything different lately?? Since it seems to be such a problem I would think someone would have started manufacturing something specific to combat this issue. Yes the cat clamp is specific but at around $300 I would assume someone would make something cheaper by now.
Any help is appreciated.
