I would think it would be easer for people too see it. It would give them a reason to break in and take it. I like hiding stuff so people can't see what I have. Can't trust people! Especially near the city Lancaster where Iam near.
I have a 1999 Ford Ranger with a 4.0 in it with a 5 speed manual transmission. It has 4 wheel drive also along with a step side bed. Every thing is stock so far lol!
