Makes sense. Easy addition.

That's typical media for you...creating fear for no real reason. The article states that stolen gates "jumped" to 1,090 in 2013! To put that in perspective, simply clicking on the second link in the article takes you to the NICB (who track these stats), and you can see that 53,995 Honda Accords alone, were stolen in the same year.

I feel bad for those who have had their property stolen (I've had 2 4runners stolen myself...as well as many other things over the years), but this article is a joke...my opinion.

My brother had his tail gate stolen. Tell him it's a joke.

You completely missed the point.

thankfully Sneak's tailgate is a locking one, plus he locks down his tonneau cover.

Even though I lock my tailgate and retrax cover, I still don't drive it to Houston, and I limit how many times I drive it to the heliport to fly offshore. I take an old hoopty. One of those they'd leave a donation on opposed to stealing something.

I was thinking about this yesterday...I wonder how many of those "stolen" tailgates were falsely reported due to dents and such.

I have an aunt who was a major oil company executive in Houston. LOL you'd be *amazed* at what her "daily driver" vehicle looked like, as opposed to what she and her husband actually drive otherwise.

She had reserved parking in a parking garage, but says the theft/abuse of vehicles was no lower there than on street parking and that was 15 years ago. Can't imagine how bad it is now.
