    Old Man Emu 885s with Nitrocharged 90000, Bilstein 5100 in the back with AllPro 3 spring progressive AAL, 16 inch Baja Black 6-spoke alloy wheels, Flow Master exhaust, bed lights, Pioneer HD radio, Uniden CB Radio, K&N Air filter, BAMF Sliders w/kickout, Relentless Aluminum IFS Skid, 24 LED light bar, custom/homebuilt expedition style bed rack and basket combo, and Body Armor rear plate bumper.
    Opened the door to my truck this morning to go to work and saw my stuff all over the place on the inside. Glove box was open, center console was open, stuff all over the seats. They went through the pockets on the back front two seats as well and the door pockets. The truck was LOCKED, but none of the windows were smashed or anything, so they must have shimmied it open.

    Only a few things taken, which was surprising considering some of the stuff they left. They got:
    SOG Seal Pup Elite Satin knife with a custom leather sheath I had made for it
    Midland two way radios
    Big MagLite (mounted to my drivers seat)
    Tool/Ratchet set
    Old registration papers

    Totaled it up and it comes to just under $300 before tax. Insurance will cover it (still on dorm/apartment insurance from my undergrad years that covers this kind of thing) and it's only a $50 deductible.

    The weird stuff is my iPod (which was in plane sight), cb radio, aftermarket Pioneer Radio, and some other stuff was just totally left.

    And thank goodness they didn't find my current insurance and registration stuff, which wasn't in the glove box. They also didn't discover that the back seats have storage because I have a lot of stuff back there, including a few axes, inverter, and tools.

    Oh well, a bummer, especially because I live in such a random place where this thing never happens. My neighbor said he has lived here for 30 years and he has never heard of this kind of thing happening. They also tried to get into my landlords truck, but I don't think figured out how to open up his in-bed tool box.

    Filed a police report but I know there is nothing they can really do. We have a major fire going on here in Pollock Pines right now so the sheriff is stretched incredibly thin as it it. It's just weird to know someone was crawling around my truck and getting into my stuff. Looks like I'll be investing in an alarm system though!

    What a bummer, lucky you didnt have to deal with a broken window or any other type of damage besides stuff mention above.
    Good luck getting your things replace , setting your new alarm.

    Sorry to hear bud. Getting broken into is a very violating feeling to deal with. I know when I had a truck broken into about 10 years ago I was seriously pissed and would've love none more to find the useless POS that did it.
    But its life and it happens. Like ^ said least glass wasn't broken and more stuff taken.
    Hope you catch em' next time and shove something up.. meh - you know what I mean.

    Ya, it definitely feels violating. I am very happy they didn't break a window though.

    I have a feeling/theory it was probably assholes up here because of the fire. There is a real problem with burglars taking advantage of evacuations and breaking into peoples homes. With a big fire just a mile away right now I think some folks are out just trying to take advantage of people. I know the sheriff has already arrested one guy, and some folks were able to get back to their house to grab some stuff and found a truck in their driveway with two people trying to get in the front door. Needless to say those pieces of shit ran for it...
    Sad to think people would be so willing to knowingly take from those who are at risk of loosing everything.

    Just curious does anyone know if it is easy to jimmy the doors on these trucks? I am sure an experienced thief, or a locksmith could do it pretty quickly, but what about your common thug?
    Glad to hear your truck was not damaged.

    But opinions....

    Any luck with alarms?

    or even dash cams with motion sensors?


    Been doing some research and there are a lot of options out there, especially for security alarm systems. Viper seems to be a big one, but there are lots of them out there.

    Its sad but when people are hurt or down the trash bag mofo'n crap from down the road usually moves in.
    We see it here if there is a Hurricane or Evacuation. THey'll come in groups to take everyone for everything they can.
    My advice, sleep with your room window open and have the ability to fire one off in the sky if need be.

    How will your insurance cover this? Just curious since my girl friends 4 Runner was broken into a few months ago. Same as you, no signs of entry. I think she may have left it unlocked, but it's hard to know for sure. Spend the $20 and buy a rear window security bar from a vendor on this site. in case you are interested.

    Well I kept my dorm/apartment/student insurance, and it covers vehicle break ins under the policy. I'm having a police report filed, and in a day or two I'll file a claim with the insurance. Should be a $50 deductible if I remember, and hopefully I can just hand them my short list of things taken and they can cover it.

    I'm mostly bummed about the knife... it was a $100+ knife and I had spent a hell of a lot of time on making a really nice leather sheath on it.

    Sorry for the invasion! I hate thieves.

    I keep my insurance and registration for each of my trucks in my wallet. No way a thief is talking themselves out of a ticket without either of them if they get pulled over while joyriding your truck as you sleep.

    yes

    Toyota has two of the top ten most stolen cars (#2 Camry/ #3 Corolla). I'm sure our locks are similar.

    That sucks man. For alarms, I like Viper. And as many sensors as I could afford.

    Why any of you think it's rational to shoot someone you catch rummaging through your coin tray is beyond me.
