So I just had my truck broke into early this morning, in daylight. Even with an alarm! it kept the truck from being stolen, but now has cost me a $250.00 window.
According to the sheriff's department I was one of the lucky ones. Lately in Southern California there has been a HUGE Rash of lifted F-250's and F-350's stolen, they are primarly targeting the diesels.
I will take a broken window over a stolen truck anyday, but now I am Extremally pissed. makes me wonder what will happen when I do get the new rims and tires.
As a word of warning to fellow FTE watch your trucks and anyone around them. Its not only happening at night now its in brawd daylight.
Are friends had their light silver 04 F-250 6.0 stolen right in the beginning of april in westminster(off springdale)
A few days before that like 2 other trucks were broken into. Heard that the key pad is the weak spot
About 2 years ago the X was broken into along with 5 other cars and a whole garage on our street. Ripped the front seats to get the headrest tv's out, used a pry bar on the dashboard to try and get the gps double din but only broke it and left it, took coins, gift cards, left a screwdriver and cig ashes all over, and then scratched the whole right rear panel from rear passenger door to tail light.

They just broke the glass and there is screwdriver marks on the passenger door seal where they tried to pop that window. And the drivers side lock is marked up. Nothing was stolen. So either the alarm scared them off or someone seen them. Since it was during daylight.
