Hungry Pit Bull in front seat?:hide: What is the reason for the lock? I assume theft? Do you have a factory alarm or aftermarket?

I tried one of those once. Biggest PITA ever and really not worth it. If a thief wants to steal your truck they will. I can have a steering wheel off the truck in under 5 minutes. Airbag literally pops out with 2 clips in the back, and then 1 large nut holds the wheel on. Replacement steering wheels can be had for as low as $10.

If a thief wants your truck, they will see it has that goofy lock and plan accordingly when they come back, if they don't have the basic tools already.

Even something as basic as a club is a deterrent and you cant get the airbag off with that bar in the way, yes if they want "your" truck then you'd better have a good policy but if its something general they're looking for your truck could be skipped for the hassle, all depends on the thief and his training

It's like a regular door handle you just find the door handle line and push and it will come out and you pull simple as that

Basically my point is you can park a locked escalade in the best neighborhoods vs an unlocked lambo in the worst and escalade will be gone first in response to your what kinda neighborhood do you live in question

After market alarm ( Viper ), 2 way remote with feedback, Smart Start app on your smartphone. Works with factory alarm. Saved my truck at Great Adventure. Knuckleheads popped door lock and turned it with a screw driver or any key. They thought it would shut off the factory alarm since this is another way to turn off your factory alarm, just unlock with your key. They had no idea I had the Viper system. Sent me a page on smart phone, they ran off, they could not get the horn to stop honking..... They had no "quick way" to turn it off in a busy parking lot.... Saved my 100K truck!

Yup, that's my philosophy.

Just make it harder, more time consuming for a thief and he'll likely move on to one that is less work for him. You'll save your truck from all but determined thieves this way.
