    I guess any Tacoma Trucks 2005 and older are hot commodities. I thought I would share with you guys if you haven't seen this:

    Heard about this on the radio, anyone know how they are stealing them, or if theres something that makes them particularly easy to steal? If so maybe there are preventative measures we can take to stop this.

    Its 2005 and Older. Not the 2nd Gen. However, be careful of where you park and also leave valuables out of sight.

    "Tacoma model years 2005 and older appear to be targeted. PreRunners are reportedly the most attractive to thieves."

    I wonder why?
