****. Sorry to hear that.
Given the state of the truck, I'd hope they don't find it or hope your insurer will write it off as unusable. I couldn't use it again. Yuck!
Hope it works out for you.

Camper was found a couple miles away on the corner of Genesee and 36th. Pretty messed up and lots of needles. Thanks for the help guys.

Sorry it wasn't a happy ending. Out of curiosity, was the alarm on? Wondering if the scumbags who stole your truck defeated it.

That sucks eggs. Sorry to hear of your misfortune. I’m 2 weeks into dealing with my insurance company for damage done to my camper by another driver. You need to keep on them for sure. It’s amazing what they don’t know!

One of the reason I have a fob based ignition bypass. It arms when I turn off the truck and I have to activate the FOB to turn the ignition back on to make the key turn the truck on. no wires, no switches

not going to post the link for the bad guys cruising the web to get a heads up but PM me and I will send you a link. Its not expensive ( except to repair your punched door lock and column key) and its a DIY install.

As expected with any tech, soft bypassing of these systems seems to be already at hand. And I'm sure thieves of expensive vehicles already have gadgets to defeat your FOB. Though not likely in the hands of the junkie set looking for a quick buck, probably not long before it's just a phone app available for all.
Friend of mine's Pitbull trapped a thief in his car. Guys couldn't move so he just left him there to marinate in his wet pants. And knowing the friend, the thief was lucky he got dealt with by the Pitbull. That's a security system that can't be hacked.....

Fortunately, most of the people trying to steal vehicles are just meth/druggies. They don’t use any sophisticated equipment and focus on easy to steal items. It’s about volume for them.

I know some of the substations were able to stop copper from being stolen simply by painting the copper, black.

We are mostly only trying to keep idiots from stealing. The bar is pretty low. They will just move on to the next easy to steal item.

Absolutely. Love the painted copper trick. That's good thinking!
Getting them to target the next guy is what it's all about. I tell the same to clients that want window security 'bars' but don't want bars like a jail. It's all about the visual. They don't have to be bomb proof. I can do something nice and the thief will see it and just go to the next house without anything on the windows. There's always the super nutters, but 99.9% aren't going to want to bother trying a place with something that looks secure. I've even done ones that are just 'set in' the interior window box. Can't tell the diff from looking in.
