he's young, it's probably more to do with the heavy foot than anything else. I had a lot heavier foot when I was 20 something.

Edit: Ha, thinking about it I had a heavier foot before gas went over $4 a gallon.

Just an idea- for more security on the Torx, buy some slightly longer bolts, drill a hole near the bottom tip crossways, and add a cotter pin or castle nut arrangement. Can't unscrew, can't steal!
I just keep the doors unlocked and the jeep empty. I might run an ignition kill switch just for those crafty basTURDS

Tuffy! (because of above)

Inspired by Neoxxis... Phase 1: Wood.

Phase 2: marine-grade rug or rhino-liner? It's pressure-treated, but the boat guys say use epoxy (@$45/quart) under the rug (@$17/foot). Will bedliner stick to PT wood? Please advise...
We're the doors locked? If so, that was the first mistake. Of not, the thief was an idiot.

I don't have a heavy foot. I don't enjoy going fast in my jeep in Kansas the cross winds are something terrible.
I think it has something to do with the fact that I drive 80 miles or so on the highway everyday

Yeah that'll do it. Especially if the highway is rough old worn pretty bad. Driving from ft hood to Austin i do pretty decent. If I'm driving on the local highways that are ripped up for repair its about a tank per week

Added my shackle mounts yesterday onto my front bumper. And made my own quick discos.
Can't upload pics though.

Made an appointment with the dealer to replace the Wireless Control Module in the Jeep so the clock will no longer lose time. (Hopefully!)

Added AEV rear bumper. Would add pics but they are too big. My supporter status is in doubt for renewal if this continues. =/
