    I don't think this is a joke, I've heard of this happening. thieves stealing cats out from under vehicle's for the metal in them. Can't remember what type of metal but that went on a few years back around here anyway. That sucks man. :(

    Titanium, raised trucks are more of a target cause their easier to get under.

    That sucks bro, Dealership will be double of price if you get an aftermarket.

    Thats not true, they are after palladium.
    There is no Titanium in a cat.

    How Catalytic Converters Reduce Pollution
    Most modern cars are equipped with three-way catalytic converters. "Three-way" refers to the three regulated emissions it helps to reduce - carbon monoxide, unburnt hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxide molecules. The converter uses two different types of catalysts, a reduction catalyst and an oxidization catalyst. Both types consist of a ceramic structure coated with a metal catalyst, usually platinum, rhodium and/or palladium. The idea is to create a structure that exposes the maximum surface area of the catalyst to the exhaust stream, while also minimising the amount of catalyst required (they are very expensive).
    There are three main types of structures used in catalytic converters - ceramic honeycomb, metal plate and ceramic beads (now almost obsolete) - the Scorpio like most cars today use a ceramic honeycomb structure.

    My Brother works in the only palladium mine in the United States, and there largest customer is GM.

    Should, but have to consider how much your deductible is? Maybe try homeowners also if if happened in your driveway. ;)

    Time isn't an issue. Grab a sawzall and it takes 45 seconds to steal the cats. It's very easy on trucks because of the ground clearance.

    They took your catalytic converter and muffler.

    :facepalm:

    Platinum and Palladium are both expensive, but the really expensive one in there is Rhodium.

    Like most people now, who's gonna give a shit if someone is stealing your cat. It's not like someone is willing to call a theif out in a parking lot. Just the arrogant world we live in.
