It happened to us, too, in November 2014, 11 months after we bought our TT. We had a hitch lock, but it didn't deter the thief :-( We were told to kiss our TT goodbye as it would be rare if it was found. Amazingly, a week later, our TT was recovered! Those who were negative were shocked. Like yours, ours had minimal damages, and the thief, along with his son, were living in our TT for a week. Ugh! I was so angry because I had spent a long time looking for a perfect TT only to have it stolen! We found another TT, even better than the old one, and traded the stolen one for our current TT. Since then, we bought another hitch lock and tire boots. It is parked on the same lot where our old one was stolen, but this time, under the street lights *knock on wood.* I need to change the storage locks as the lock is universal (CHP751). I am also thinking about changing two door locks but haven't gotten around to it. We did think of getting a tracking device but decided against it as it's expensive.

I had a YJ stolen years back. Thankfully, they burnt it.

Amen to that. If mine was recovered I would immediately trade it and eat the loss. Would probably have it hauled straight to the dealership to avoid being in the same seat as a "thieving" piece of scum. Had a radio stolen once out of an Expy and was mad every time I got into it for a good while.

On the lighter side.

Have decals made to be put on all doors and windows that read:

"Protected by Smith & Wesson 3 days a week.....
You guess which 3!

I've been watching on E-bay but haven't seen a portable force field available yet and I think that's what it would take to be 100% .
My recommendation was to help prevent theft.
Of course you are right. No force field available. Those situations are usually accidents, this was deliberate.

Still it turned out alright in the end, just wondering what if anything other folks use to prevent break ins, after that, I agree, insurance can cover me.

On Star, originally only on GM vehicles, has extended their service to other makes. It has less features than on GM vehicles, but it does have theft protection/tracking. The "mirror" is about a hundred and can be installed at Best Buy. Annual premium is just shy of $200. However, this added theft protection could give you an insurance discount.

Can't answer for all makes but the Ford cutaway has no anti theft built in. Hard to believe, right?
