    you arent allowed to know. the tech choses a random spot.

    i am sure the device is very small... maybe 2"x2" or so. it runs on an internal battery and you need to have it inspected every other year or so.

    ohh... and some insurance companies will give you a discount for having it. i think i got like a 3% discount on mine.

    Although I don't have it on mine, I've recovered a lot of cars with lojack. None of them had severe damage. It is a pain to track if the car is moving, since lojack is based on radio triangulation. You will usually get your car back within hours of being reported, since the locator box will beep really loud until the vehicle is recovered, and you can't shut it off, so it drives cops nuts. Its a shame Toyota doesn't have a on-star style system, those are gps based and the operator gives you exact street locations, and direction of movement, we get a lot more arrests from those.

    Bump.

    Has anyone found their LoJack mounted in their truck? Where at? I would guess LoJack has an install sheet with recommended spots.

    When I bought my truck it had LoJack already installed but I negotiated to not pay for /activate the service. That mystical box is still somewhere on my truck and I'd love to find it and remove it. I think I'm being followed...

    When they were installing mine I went out to my truck to get something and dude got pissed. Told me I couldn't be anywhere near the truck while they were installing. He was under my driver's side dash so I'm assuming it's under there somewhere. Haven't looked because I don't really care.
