    I just hate thieves...

    I have installed an anti theft skid plate that covers the front catalytic converters and half of the rear converters. Now if someone really wants to steal these aftermarket cats, they will have some extra work to do. It will not take just a second over a minute to cut them off next time. I am...

    No alarm on my old 12 year old Tundra :( I have installed some anti theft devices to keep it from happening again.

    Laughing In A Movie Theater

    The Mrs. and I were at a movie a while back where there was a gentleman in front of us who was very easily humored. He laughed at everything, whole heartedly, belly groaning laughs. At first it annoyed me as he was laughing way beyond what the humor deserved, but he kept laughing, long and loud...

    Maybe Next Time Use The Door, eh?

    Almost 30 years ago my oldest daughter was asleep in her crib when she spat out her pacifier. Since it was my turn to take care of her I got out of bed and headed for her room. Unknown to me the door to my bedroom was slightly closed, and I walked straight into the edge of the door in the dark...

    Had to have my truck towed last night

    My old 1973 Chevy Pickup would just eat starters over time. There was a design flaw where the header from the engine was routed right down almost against the starter/solenoid which would heat it up really well. I got pretty good at replacing those units even in the dark (every 18 months or so I...

    No Tie Long Enough

    Was sitting in the KC airport waiting on a flight when this really tall man and woman walked into the airport. The man had to be all of 6'10" and the woman was all of 6'4" and I can confirm that as I was eye to eye with her and I am 6'4". So I am watching them wait around baggage claim and then...

    Had to have my truck towed last night

    My old '73 chevy would start without a key in the ignition. One day did not get the keys out of my pocket and I just turned the switch and it started. The key was just there for show :)

    Well said sir! I think as the social economic gap increases we will see more of things like this happen. I remember talking with a friend when I lived in Odessa TX back in the 80's after the oil crash. Him and his brother were guys who I thought the world of and kind of idolized as I was three...

    One of the guys on the Tundra forum had his stolen, he got it fixed and was ordering a skid plate (lead time then was like four weeks) and before his security plate arrived the thieves had hit his cats again. He installed the plates and felt safe till he came out one morning and his truck was...

    Certain Tundras are more easily accessible than others. First and second generation are the worst (up to 2014 models). Here is where I got mine, no affiliation. Install took two guys 30 minutes top. Can they steal the cats still? Yes. Will it take them longer than a minute now, Yes!!! I have...

    You and I think alike!! I told my wife I was going to put a hand gernade and attach the pin to the cat pipes. When the thief pulls the cat down, the pin pulls out and five seconds later no more thief. My wife looked at me and said, "you know that will destroy your truck too, right?" LOL

    Tulsa... you should read about all the Cat thefts there. It is like they are giving the kids meth in school and creating an epidemic. Tulsa has gotten so bad lately with all the stuff going on there.
