    Yo TW peeps! There have been massive reports regarding cat converters stolen from Toyota trucks and suvs especially 1st gen Comas, T100s and old school 4runners. Just a heads up. Honestly it only takes a few minutes to take one out. I'm thinking of welding my cat converters.

    I hope those assholes get beat down. If I see someone messing with my truck, I'll curb them American History X style! Or I'll call sheriffs dispatch to handle them since they're patrolling now. Local mall parking structures are bad areas too.

    Even if you weld it, they'll still take it. A hack saw or Saw Zall will remove it in about 2 minutes.
