    Definitely something metal. If you load things into the bed, you don't want them to be able to fall out through holes in the tailgate. My first thought was put some diamond plate on it. The stamped metal would be way better though.

    Too be fair...wheel locks are pretty easy to defeat, but at least it deters casual onlookers.

    I think so. Wheel locks/locking lug nuts same thing. There are some that spin, so you cant hammer on a socket to take it off. But even then, I think you can break those off with the right tools.

    Yeah, it’s like 2020 is the psycho ex that’s now stalking me. I’m adding wheel locks this time around, though I realize it’s just a deterrent rather than a solution. Nervous now that my truck has been targeted.

    We (TW peeps on this thread) are a really small sample of people in this state and I think your the 4th person in the last month or so that’s been hit. We had two car chases through our job sites now involving stolen vehicles. It’s a crazy world we live in now. There is no recourse for people’s actions anymore.

    Not that I'm condoning vigilante justice, but I won't be calling for police backup until the other person is on death's doorstep. Gunshots are common to hear in my neighborhood. Any screams I can attribute to my goats being terrorized by the local coyote population.
