Warning! Ford super duty easy too break in too

Well it seems Superduty Fords take about 3 seconds too break into. The lock rod is just behind the door handle and are extremely easy too get the lock open. There is a company that makes a protection kit for the locks. Luckily they only got a couple 100 dollars of stuff so you guys be careful.

Any truck is easy to break into. Throw a brick through the window and it's wide open.

Yes a theif will not be stopped but this flaw allows the theif too walk up and break into your truck in the same place he would be inserting a key.

I would advice you too check what your insurance actually covers. You may be suprised!

Sorry too hear about that.

I had about 5k worth of lasers , 500 dollar Dewalt set and a 10k grading system for my excavator in the truck so I was darn happy they only took my Nexus 7 tablet.

This same thing happened to my 05 super duty in bass pros lot at noon on a Sunday, in 20 min they stole my wife's purse, DVD head unit, and tore apart my truck and spent $800 on my credit card, all at Walgreens! You feel violated when someone who has no respect for other people's items, especially when we work as hard as we do to have nice things!

Doors and locks are for honest people. If they want it they will get it.

You have this timed just about right. If you use a key it takes longer to unlock the truck than a thief can unlock it. Several late model ford trucks get hit every weekend in Tulsa at the malls.
