No idea what he's talking about. If it's so easy tell your buddy to go steal it for you.

If your a thief and know what your doing you can steal anything fast. If someone wants it bad enough they will get it.

No, you can't steal it easy. Not like a 2nd gen ranger...just pop off the antenna and stick it underneath the door handle and pop...doors open! haha

yeah, you might be able to hot wire / steal one in 10 seconds, but there's no way you could make a ford ranger, or chevy colorado, or isuzu amigo for that matter...
... increase in value and be worth as much in 10 seconds.

Ahhhh, Abe is rare form this evening. Go get the 88 already. Anthing is easy to steal, if you know what your doing. Thats why you install a "kill" switch in line withthe power wires for the fuel pump the minute you get the truck home. If you install a kill switch, and you flip it when you get outta the truck, whoever's trying trying to steal your truck will need to tow, or flatbed your rig, after it stalls on the thief a few away from where it was parked to begin with....

Why not leave little miss twinkle toes in the truck? I'd rather face a pitbull.

I've heard 4Runners are really easy to steel.

Someone tried to steal my uncle's old diesel pickup...but they didn't know crap about diesels so they couldn't get it started. The next night he left a bear trap on the driver's seat. Hasn't been attempted since.

The reason some peeps say they are easy to steal is the old ones keys often fit in each others. Ive helped a fellow toyota driver out who locked his keys in his truck, just used mine to unlock it. Sometimes they work in the ignitions too, I could take my buddies truck and drive it too with my keys lol

Also my buddy got a basic alarm system installed that would keep you average car thief out for under $200 I believe

Yep..When I had my MK3 Supra, my roommate at the time who also has a MK3 Supra (Nice Single Turbo 1JZ) could use his key to open and start my car, but mine didn't work in his! lol

haha, thats the same, My buddy can't even unlock my door with his key (his trucks an 82), but mine works in his. His actually did get stolen before he got his alarm, and the investigators said it looked like it was just unlocked and driven away! Odd

I put a club on my truck. Perhaps you could cut it off, but thats going to make it a harder target than the truck down the street.

thats the trick, making it take time to steal. the longer it takes, the more likely the thief is going to be noticed and/or caught. park in well lit areas, lock your doors, install a kill switch, use the club... you get the idea.

it takes all of 10 seconds to cut thru a steering wheel and bend it around the club... we had to do it to get my moms off of her car when she got mugged and her keys were stolen...
