Killed my year, it was another company that did it..
I also have state farm and they have been wonderful!
I might add that getting with in 9k of 40k is pretty good. But that is my opinion.

A relatively inexpensive and quite efficient protection against theft of vehicles is achieved by adding a kill switch to a vital component, like the fuel pump, for example.

The trick is to do a VERY good job. The switch must be strategically located. And the wires must not stand out.

I used to have kill switch installed on all my cars.

What if.... each piece of equipment had a hidden tag with technology inside that could be registered by the owner. An application connected to a world-wide tracking system is able to locate that piece of equipment at the touch of a button on your phone or computer.
When you by the equipment you mount the tag and sync if with the application. Print out your inventory and store it too, maybe. When something is taken, the app locates the tag hidden within and shows you exactly where it is. Then call the cops. Bring the proof with you. Retrieve your stuff.

I can imagine how this tech would work. I'm wondering if there is enough demand for it to build it.
Your thoughts?

On 12/12/14, my 2007 chevy silverado 2500hd single cab long bed pick up was stolen from mesquite, tx. It has my lesco 100 gallon skid sprayer mounted in the truck bed.

Truck vin#1gchc24u87e122332
lic plate dds 8519 texas plates
texas department of agriculture numbers on both sides tda 0504755

lesco skid sprayer serial number 6211010157

i am told that there theft of heavy duty trucks is rampant right now and is being carried out by a professional organize ring of the aryan nation. That more than likely these vehicles are being chopped and landscape equipment is probably being shipped out of state.

So please pass this around so that other states and texas be aware.
