I embedded the pic in Post #1, kenabi.

I figured you'd rather they see the image than have someone too lazy to go off site.

Good luck getting it back.

I had a van stolen in Portland once. I finally found it by using a map and driving around the city looking at everything. Long story. Took me a few days before I found it. The bikers next door to the thief helped me recover it after I dropped a couple of cases of Michelob on them. Nice guys.

Can't hide a truck like that very well. Put it out on social media in the Portland area. That's a very unique looking truck. You would notice it right away going down the street.

I don't go too heavy protecting my truck in the driveway. My office window overlooks everything. (We use a spare bedroom as the office) Only had to go down there once in fifteen years, since we live in the very back and it's not good pickings for thieves. Walked out with my Ruger MK2 held down at my side. They just went away and never came back. I can snatch a pop can off a log at 25 yards without even thinking about it using that damn thing. And believe it or not, a 22 is to be feared.

When you get your truck back, consider installing a hidden kill switch on the power lead to the distributor. And buy THE CLUB. It works. It makes people move on, and even if they get the stereo, by God they ain't taking your truck any damn place. I will keep a lookout up north here.

with an oem steering wheel, it takes under 10s to bypass a club. literally. relevant article explaining how and why they can be a terrible idea; http://freakonomics.com/2010/06/08/w...k-of-the-club/

if its recovered intact i'll be putting some mod plans into place immediately and looking into lojack. when i'm done it won't move under its own power, even though we're on a hill. even popping the clutch won't do a damn thing.

and i've been trying to figure out something to post to craigslist but honestly every time i start trying to put something down i get all cheesed off again.

Just remove the ignition fusable link. No crank, not start no ignition.

Similar plan, but less problematic to get done quickly.

Haha! You are too kind.

I covered it for ya. Being on a PC makes it a lot easier to make edits than it is on a phone or tablet.

apparently you need to update it sorry -_- people were basically complaining at me because they were like I THOUGHT IT WAS A CHILD YOU HEARTLESS MONSTER..

... do these idjits not realize how many people call their cars/trucks their baby? ffs. you also don't steal a baby when referring to the event, you say 'kidnapped'.
