Re: Keeping Your New FJ
I like the gun rack idea, although here in LA (where CaliFJ and I are located) that would probably get it stolen even faster!
Remember that old commercial with a uniformed cop saying, "I recommend The Club." What a priceless, cheeseball commercial. But heck, everyone had one in their car for a while. I have to admit that I too was lured in by the seemingly Fort Knox lockdown capabilities mentioned in the commercial. Then I saw a news report with teenage car thieves showing 10 different ways to get around one and quit using it. I guess they would make a thief go to another car just out of a pain in the butt factor, but with a 4x4 like this usually the thief knows what he wants and will just circumvent The Club.
I feel for you tectorgorch because 4x4's are hot commodities anywhere near the Mexican border like San Diego, and even stretching up to LA. The thieves just take 'em over the border and they sell like hot cakes.
BTW, how well do hotcakes actually sell?
