    I went to the dealer today for some service. I mentioned the cat thefts. My service advisor says he gets about 4/week! Yikes. At the cost of $1500/each to replace, that's a hefty bill. I know, stupid-high stealership prices.

    Now that crazy priced $300 cat clamp isn't sounding so bad, considering the cost of potential loss x2 cats at $3000.

    Or I need to get those skid plates on quick. Lifted trucks are especially prone:eek:

    I would never live even remotely close to anyplace where vehicle crimes happen, I never even heard of exast systems being stolen. Yes I know my vehicles could to targeted unexpectedly, but there not, and there not going to be. :infantry: :bananadead: :woot:

    They found a guy near here crushed underneath a car and he had been there dead for a week or more. (This was some storage barn out on a farm).

    They found out he was in the process of stealing the cat when his rigged up jack stands fell.

    If your an officer of the law it would probably apear that way since crime is your job, no crime in my neck of the woods buddy. P.S. I do not live in the woods.

    When I lived in Richmond someone broke into our truck inpound at work and stole the cats off 4 trucks. The office was in a pretty good area of the city also in the west end just inside the city limits... Crime happens everywhere man, get your head out of the sand.
