Ha, I told my gf about this thread, and she told me a story about her best friend who walked outside one evening and found a guy under her truck, trying to steal the CC. She went right up to him and kicked him in the nuts as hard as she could. He left without the CC, once he recovered :boxing3:

Here, but occasionally There.
Good luck stealing mine out from under my brz unless they bring low profile jack and stands. Jeep would be easy but I bet not worth it. Something tells me only very large vehicles are what are targeted.

Son and DIL had their RV parked for sale near our house. Sat there all day Sunday, went to pick it up, I heard them coming down the street. I meet them, Son says there is an exhaust leak, I say yea, your CC was stolen. Sure enough, it's gone, F450. They sold the RV that day, new owner wanted it the same way he saw it, cost them $1500 to get it replaced. Fast forward a couple of weeks and I hear their Element start when they were leaving, they got the CC on it too. It was rampant in Tulsa, Elements and Prius were the primary targets.

According to Shoot Summ's comment, Elements and Prius cars are targets. I doubt that they are very large vehicles.

I have had 3 co-workers hit at their homes.
Tundra's are pretty popular too because they have 4 CCs. Here was my chosen solution.
