Default People suck...

So I woke up this morning to take a ride to get some coffee...What do I see? Some low life POS broke into my truck and stole my radio bezel and headunit, fishing rod, fishing tackle, and about 1k worth of tools! I cant stand that I work 50 hour weeks to provide for my family and put some money into my truck and some ***hole, who probably doesn't even have a job, takes the liberty to rip me off in minutes. Karma is a b*tch...

Buying a car alarm today, some window tint...and maybe a shotgun!

Anyone have any tips on what I could do to fix this...I know replacing the door is my only option really...

I had the same thing happen to my truck, but they didn't steal anything which was weird. They took a screwdriver or something to pop out the lock on the outside to unlock the door. This pisses me off because I work hard like you do and try to get nice things and people do shit like this because they are too lazy to get a job and get things for themselves.

Seriously what a POS. Someone probably walked or drove by when they were trying to get in and they took off. I hate how easy it is to get into these trucks...

Did you have to replace your door shell? Junkyards around here want around 200 for a used one! Ive been calling pawn shops and whatnot all over my state to see if they turned anything in yet..


I feel so way to describe it..

Sucks! This is my top most pet peeve I think. I've been broke into too in other vehicles I've owned. Once woke up and looked out to see my Mustang's trunk open. At least I wasn't surprised when I went out there. Already knew what to expect. That was about 15 years ago. Funny, I just had a nightmare last night about a break in.

Insurance may cover the loss right?

This car alarm should suffice, this way you can find the culprits in the morning when they are burnt to a crisp next to your truck.

There are very few people lower than a thief (child molesters and rapists but that's about it). Have you contacted your insurance company and they will probably want a report from your PD. Most cases the insurance will cover items that were in the vehicle as long as there is a police report filed. That doesnt do anything for the sense of violation that I'm sure you feel. But at least you may be able to replace your stuff.

Viper car alarm and heavy duty door locks, best investment my family has done to my truck. Call pd, my truck alarm kept going off night after night and finally I called the police and had it fingerprinted. Ran it back to a locally know car thief a few months later and now it's considered "trespassing" second degree if he's near my truck again. Just saying it never hurts. They really should have done something different to these doors, he didn't even need to punch a hole in it

Some people in this world are pitiful. This is why with my radio, my CB, my Ultra Gauge and all of my tools in the back seat, I'm going to start being a lot more particular about where I park.

That sucks man. I feel your pain. I had my truck broken into three years ago. They smashed my driver side window. Took my amp and 10"kicker sub, and a tool set.
What sucks is, the amp and sub were over 6 years old, so the stuff they stole was barely worth $100. It cost me more than that to replace the window. Fucking Gieco wouldn't cover anything!!!

They will probably sell them for the money , about 25 cents on the dollar , not hardly worth what you paid for them . . Had it happen to me years ago . My Dodge had a Viper alarm and I loved it . Sorry to hear ....
