    So yesterday at about 5am, I couldn't sleep and kept hearing my alarm's warning chirp. I had the keys in my pocket and would arm the alarm anytime I heard it. So maybe like half hour later I hear the alarm go off for reals. Look out the window and notice it's my brother's tacoma going off so I go outside to check. At first I need see anything done but got closer and saw shattered glass. Sure enough, his window was busted and someone stole his usb flash drive that was in his stereo and an aux cable. We're lucky I was awake and probably scared him because I kept messing with my alarm. The dude didn't steal anything of value but he wasted our time and tint.

    Today I was driving back from church and notice one of my neighbors also had his window busted. Get off and talk to him and he says he had no alarm and they got to steal his $50 stereo. He was more relaxed than I would've been but then again we drive Toyota's and he has a dodge. :p

    Well I just wanted to warn people here in Arizona or anyone actually. There's criminals/stupid kids that'll cause more damage than the stupid items they steal. In my family's case, It's our 4th car with a broken window so cameras might be going up. Cops can never do anything because they don't have a suspect.

    Yeah right dude. I don't know if you guys remember, last year my window was broken, I had stock everything besides a sub and amp(hidden behind the bench and stock stereo) and all they stole were burnt cd's. Same with my sister's 2000 hyundai accent. Completely stock with nothing but old papers in it. My brother in law's STI was broken into as well but they only stole cd's as well.

    I used to have a marine sticker but my brother is a marine and the neighbor with a dodge is a marine and look what happened. Plus, I'd need to be a member to get a sticker and membership is like $80 or something.lol

    It's really not.ha

    My door ended up scratched from the glass. My brother's window was all smashed inside the truck but eh, his paint is starting to fade anyway. :p ('04 first gen.)

    I have a webcam in my window rigged to my comp with a program that uses motion detection to take pics. Shows the entire drive way and part of the street.

    A few weeks ago I caught a couple kids going through my Mom Sequoia. Opened my blinds and there they where, inside the truck. I grabbed a baseball bat and my truck keys and hauled ass outside, they saw me through the window and had taken off into the woods before I got outside (I'm upstairs). Was a couple 15 year old looking kids on skateboards, I'm 6'2 and 250lbs, they made a wise choice by running.

    The above story is why I now have a security cam. I'd be anything they where the same little pricks who stole my CB antenna a few months back.

    I think security cameras would be the only help. There's no window directly in front of the driveway. :( Cameras are a good idea though

    My dad had his ram 1500 broken into what, 7 years ago or such. After that he put on up a webcam that uploaded to a server on-line and he could watch from work, and a motion light that was pretty much a massive spot light that lite the truck up like daylight. No one messed with it again.

    i think i've seen your truck parked on the steet, you live right off of McQueen right? I live right down the street from there, and my brother's truck was broken into last summer, then my neighbors truck was broken into in November. I bought a timer switch for my outside lights so they come on at dusk and shut off at dawn. I also cover my stereo with a white cloth, and sit one of my shotgun shells on the dash in plain view... haven't had a problem yet.

    I have a worthless Rockledge Security System that the dealer convinced me I needed. Only good if they open the doors. No shock or glass break.

    Any recommendation on a good alarm?

    Mine is an autopage alarm that i got after they broke my window. It was $160 but since i don't have any power options, it serves just as an alarm, no keyless entry.
