The plate he tried to steal. When he pulled it out he bent it in 2. thingy sucker.
haha fn sweet!! really think he had something to do with steeling it?
glad you didn't get hurt holding the douchebag..but glad said douchebag has been outed.are your plates expired?
Here is a more recent pic with some 15x8's and new 33x10.50's. Still clean, but nothing like it used to be. Interior has been molested and the old wheels and tires are missing, rear bumper is gone, seats and headliner got trashed, ect, ect. Powertrain seemed untouched thank god.
my cousin has had 2 first gens stolen out of the same parking lot. both times the trucks had the club on.
That sucks man. I know the Club isn't prefect and no matter what you do if someone really wants it they are gonna get it (just get a tow truck and tow it away), but the Club is a good start for people who are too lazy to take care of their own property. <--- I realize this is an offensive statement but seriously 1st & 2nd gen Toyota trucks are easy to steal and are very, very precious to you and the whole Crawling community. I hope maybe this will offend someone enough to finally take action and install a kill switch or a car alarm. I realize this guy was only ripping off a license plate, which wouldn't have been protected from a kill switch, but if you are not doing everything you can then what are you doing... This stuff seriously breaks my heart. I've had close friends have their vehicles stolen. There is waaay to much auto-theft to not take this seriously. Let them rip of that lowered Civic that is parked next to you instead of your Crawler that you've invested so much in building up. I hope all car thieves get their just deserved like this guy here courtesy of White83.BigMike
I have been considering one of the Grant Removeable Steering wheel systems for a few years. TrekkerPaul gave me a Grant steering wheel out of truck he parted out so thought it was a good excuse to order one. Cheapest place I found was from Jegs. Ordered on Friday, got here today(tuesday) awesome service IMO. About $50 lower than Auto Zone and $90 cheaper than Grant's List price of $215 :eeek:Install time is probably 20-30 minutes or so. Put the Grant Removeable steering wheel security thing in today:Put the key in, a slight turn to the left and pop off the steering wheel:Put the Red 'can't drive this one' warning in:I think this will be a great way to help me keep my truck around...
I also have this..
I like how this doesn't modify the shift handle and is removable. Very nice implementation.
what is that shift knob made from? is it just a steel ball welded to a nut?
my wife thinks I am paranoid about the crap i do to slow low lifes down but I have been working on my POS for 7 years. Have way more $$ into the truck than it is worth but at this point the truck is kind of like a piece of me. I can head out and work on it for a few hours every now and then and forget about the stress of life/work etc.
i had the idea of welding a small hoop to my tie rod in a spot so when i turn the steering to full stop in one direction i could use my cobra link lock to to lock the steering to the leaf spring kinda like a motorcycle steering lock. kinda hard to steal a truck driving in circles haha
I still daily driving my very first car I've ever owned since I was 18 yrs old. Being in love with a car for 1 and a half decade has amounted to a lot of experiences, stories, and trust in the machine that I could never replace.BigMike
ive been paranoid about my truck especially during summer when i run half doors everywhere. i had the idea of welding a small hoop to my tie rod in a spot so when i turn the steering to full stop in one direction i could use my cobra link lock to to lock the steering to the leaf spring kinda like a motorcycle steering lock. kinda hard to steal a truck driving in circles haha
Sometimes I wish a seat mounted Taser was legal...Have to turn it off or get hit by 50K volts...it would actually be pretty easy to do but not worth the liability, the tweaker would probably win the lawsuit...
that is awesome BigMike. I wish I had kept my high school car, a 1967 Karmann Ghia I bought from the original owner.
