that sucks. My suggestion is to move from California. Its just something you guys have to deal with. If i lived in cali i would definately have a radio. Even on my cj. My brother drives a civic (the most stolen vehicle ever) we dont have a problem with that in out area but hes paranoyed Here are some good suggestions.
-At home try and park yourself in with another car.
-I would recommend an alarm. Clifford makes some really good two way alarms for 150 or so. Use motion instead of shock sensors. Hide the brain and put in a back up siren. A seperate siren that has its own battery and when wires are clipped that ****er just keeps going and going. This type of alarm will tell you (up to 1000ft) if when it is being triggered.
-Re route your your hood cable so they can't open it.
-install a couple hidden switches. The best are one to kill the ecu and one to the fuel pump.
-if your really crazy by one of the cheap boost mobile pay as you go phones. Put this in a a discreate place and hardwire the charger to your car. Activate the phone when car goes missing and use the gps on the phone to locate vehicle. Now you know where it is.
No car is un-stealable and certainly nothing stops a flatbed. What you are doing is finding ways to deter them. Make it take longer and make it more obvious.
That really sucks tho man! was it modded? I really hate thiefs they are worthless lowlifes in society. I would put ohios castle law to use if i ever caught someone doing that where i live.
Disregard everything i say
I have a dana 30 front axle and amc 20 rear if anyone is looking. Both are 3.54, drums, narrowtrack.
