We have transponders on all our trucks and even our semi trailers there hidden and no one knows they are there.
At any given moment 24-7 we know where our trucks trailers and equipment is we cross ck against time cards and daily reports.

Years ago we had four trucks and several pieces of valuable equipment taken from our yard, the Police and CHP were able to track there movement from our system we got everything back and the fellas ( a well organized group that were targeting contractors ) Were put in Jail.

Check with your cell provider its not that costly and when you just can't insure everything its a way to sleep better at night.

Getting hit sucks ..

Good Luck and Merry Christmas

This generation Ford is very popular for theft. If you own one and don’t install an ignition kill switch it will only be a matter of time until your next.

Shitty deal, my friends neighbor had an 02 7.3 clean one owner with like 90k on it. They pushed it into the street coasted down a block and took off never to be seen again. Sucks when assholes can’t get a job and earn money the right way! Hope it’s found safe and hope your father in law gets well soon!

Those 7.3’s are noisy! It was taken at 3:45 a.m. Thanks for the wishes

Truck was found last night. It was in a police chase heading down the wrong side of the freeway in Elsinore, it was towing a stolen dump trailer and skid steer. Police spike stripped it... dude kept going till the rims were down to the hubs and came to a stop when he hit another vehicle. Somehow managed to hijack another vehicle, and continued down the wrong side of the freeway and crashed again. That’s all the info I have now

My neighbor had this exact scenario happen to him, same exact truck as yours stolen out of Corona, caught towing a stolen trailer. I believe he was also caught in Elsinore as well. This happened about a year or two ago so I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the same guy the way criminals get prosecuted in CA these days.

If you have an older F series truck, I recommend the following to help making it a lot harder to steal.
1) replace the front door handles and buy a couple rear door handles, they will not be able to punch the cheap key lock.
My 06 Lariat has a keypad, I'm not sure what other models and years do or don't.
2) Add a hidden fuel shutoff, just a regular alarm with the starter isolator, can be bypassed by jumping the starter.

If someone has anything other to add to the list, please do!

Interesting. I was coming home on Christmas night, heading 15N from Temecula. Passed the chase going 15S (was on the right side of the freeway at that time) in the Elsinore area. At least a dozen cop cars and towing the trailer w/equipment you mentioned. Told my wife I bet the truck and trailer were stolen.

Yeah personally I’d hate you too.. anyone in a wheelchair, handicapped, walking children in a stroller.... blocking the sidewalk is fucked up.

blocking your driveway with your other car is no problem. Blocking the sidewalk.. bs move

Thanks guys, this is my FIL’s work truck, he was recently diagnosed with cancer and is currently on the mend... over 500k miles on the original motor!
Let’s get this thing back home
Grant is my parents neighbor, my brother used to ride with Kyle and Colin all the time growing up.

You should visit Glenoaks north of the 118 in Pacoima. "pop up" restaurants blocking the sidewalks for blocks. NO WAY a wheelchair could pass.

I did some research over on the Ford truck forums and I'm leaning towards the Cyclops and a hood lock. The Revelco is a bit spendy, wifey wasn't convinced, lol.

I also tried to find the thing T&Y posted - but no dice.
