...and, disseminating it on the internet just makes sure that would-be criminals are aware of the vulnerability as well.

the easy fixes:

1) weld a plate behind the door handle so that your truck can no longer be broken into in this manner, or

2) if you have electric door locks, do the "LED Lock Mod" so that your truck can no longer be broken into in this manner.

caveat: if they want in, they'll get in, no matter what you do or don't do.

aside: even if you don't lock your doors, it's still a burglary if they open the truck up and steal stuff.

...and those are just some of the reasons why you shouldn't publicly post the how-to, and with that, thread closed.
