Well my emergency kit includes: Pocket knife, gas, lighter. And to protect myself on the west sides of towns: a tire checker stick. I can't carry a pistol legally yet, so I just claim the tire checker is a tire checker.

I carry a "self defense" flash light. Its annodized aluminium, kinda heavy with sharp notches machined all around the edge of both ends. I think it would be pretty effective, but thankfully i have not had to use it yet.

@ 1994diesel, I haven't had to use mine, but might have to this year in the school parking lot.( c/o '13) Somebody removed my rebel flag and put it in the bed of my truck. Now I hate to ramble on, but 2 rules: 1. don't touch my truck. 2. Don't touch anything attached to my truck. I now have my flag wired with baling wire to the right rear hole in the bed side. I'll teach that SOB not to touch it again. And the same person put a condom on my door handle.

I would get your rules made into a bumper sticker.... Or just get a sticker that says "DON'T F*** WITH MY TRUCK."

I hope the condom wasn't used... but still, nasty!!!

If you find out who is messing with your truck you can do a number of things to their car to seek revenge.... A hypodermic needle makes a nice undetectable slow leak in a tire. Brake fluid in a squirt bottle or gun( takes the paint of)... lol I really don't condone any of this though unless its some dirtbag cheating on your mother or something like that.

I don't encourage eggs, but I'm pretty sure Mercedes didn't use good enough paint on a '96 car. whahahaa!!!! The condom wasn't used, but I was pissed. It was one of the spermicide lubed ones. I didn't know if that stuff would eat paint or not, but thank the Lord it didn't. I know it was either a certain student or the principal. Non of the teachers would have done it. and the needle trick is begging me looking into it further. I was also thinking of saran wrap and ivory soap.

Saran wrapping is classic but it probably one of the easiest pranks to "undo". Ive seen people get that stuff off of their cars and drive away within seconds. Mustard is a fun thing to squirt on a car in the hot sun.

Or catch it unlocked and put a snake or skunk in it... also vaseline on the door handles, jack it up, take off the tires, put wood blocks under the drums/rotors...
