    I always lock the doors of my cars and truck. Even though I live in a very nice neighborhood it is out a little further from the city in a more rural area and my reality is; I don't trust people that I don't know-period! I don't care how nice my neighbors are, I don't know them like that and they don't know me like that. Recently, my wife got word through the neighborhood website, that people that live out this way were reporting that their cars had been broken into and that some of them even had the tailgates off the back of their trucks stolen. What? Stealing tailgates? Damn! Anyways, when I heard all of that, I no longer leave my cars or truck outside in our driveway at night. All of them are parked and locked in my garages.

    Sarcasm. 2.2 Billion active users on FB. It is likely we might find at least one baddie in the bunch.

    My buddies truck was broken into last month. It seems there is a phone app that will defeat the electronic access on a new vehicle. The VIN and code number were behind the fuel door (new f350).
    They got a backpack with a handgun and a $8k remote for a piece of hydro graphic survey equipment in it. Non of the missing property was cover by any one of three insurance policies.

    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Tailgates can bring big money. They are easily damaged and can be very expensive these days. Used ones around here can be hard to come by (legitimately).
