4runner (old hand)
Posted on 8/22/01 07:05 AM
From IP 209.184.192.23


CRAP!!!! THis is getting scary!!! That's THREE Runners in less than a week! There are notes on the POR about two others--all are modified and would make great vehicles for Mexico/Central America.....Unless it was local high school kids out for a joyride(in which case it is in the next town or in a lake or river) or it went south of the border.....good luck and hope it is recovered...

4.3runner


yeh this all is scareing me too.. I have spent way too much on my toy,, I would... get down right mid evil on any one that even tried. going to hook up the hidden switches. locks.. ect.. any one got any good ideas on how to not get our toys stolen?????

Install multiple kill switches. The main switch--- a momentary switch, meaning it must be held on while turning the key. Either way, if the right person wants your ride they will figure out a way to get it.

don't leave it where they can get it.

pro's will just drag it away with a tow truck in about 30 seconds. rendering alarms and switches useless

Has anyone wondered if this is POR related? Alot of us post pics of our rigs detailing what is in them and our security devices (kill switches) and WHERE there are located. And some of our pics are in front of the house where we live. This was just a thought. This might of happened to Frosty. By the looks of it you wouldnt think he had much in it. But those of us that know him and those on the board know whats inside. So the moral of the story be carefull whatcha say.

I was thinking ( yea i know it tends to hurt when I do it)
There is also the possiblity of crooks seeing ppls trucks on the next and seeking them oout to steal them- it would be easy then to find a truck ya wanna steal and then strip it down or something.

I sure hope one of the fu*kers get caught and beaten by some angry toyota owner...

Run an extra ignition wire (extra extra long) from the coil up into the bottom of the driver's seat. The thief will shit themselves in more ways than one when they try to start that vehicle. Of course, popping the hood to change the wire everytime you leave your car is a pain, but for long intervals it makes for a good time!

Enjoy,

Brian

doubt it. the day frosty rig was stolen the cops said there were 5 other toy trucks stolen in fresno that day. it has more to do with orders for vechile types coming from south america and being stolen by professional car theif rings..

If they want it they will take it...

...if they do, mine is insured for $20K.

I love my truck, but you can only do so much.

I wanna know the guy that could tell what his rig even was. It didnt really have the true 4runner look.

Here in Fresburg they just got a chop shop with a couple Toy's but I doubt it was Frostys.

You could put one of those "guns don't kill people- I do" stickers next to an NRA sticker behind your gun rack in the back window. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
