Good idea, if a tad expensive.

interesting. that's a tough sell at that price point for welded metal though. that will be very successful if he can get the price down.

In the USA, if thieves stole random cars, youre looking at less than a .02% chance of getting your car stolen per year.

That said, car theives do not steal cars randomly.
Discount the few joy riders, and you get pros/semi pros. They steal a few varieties of car (differs greatly by area) and thats likely all they could steal. Looking at the cars most stolen here... Theyre doing the owners a favor... Nothing that would be missed. Notably high in chrysler products of similar years.

Add in, near zero market for a rover at a chop shop in north america, and all you have left are the people on these boards and the joy riders. I only lock my doors at work. Thats because i dont want anyone pranking me.

I have seen many cars stolen... But of the friends and neighbors i knew, probably about a dozen... In that area... Only 2 models. Civics of a certain generation and b2000/ranger. They made up most of the thefts there.


Touch wood, i wouldnt spend a dime on any devices, save maybe window screens and hasp locks so i can keep tools safe. As is, if i keep em in the truck, i just leave the truck unlocked and prominently display my tool case, securely locked through the bulkhead or around the roll bar.

Related note, do all exmods have the same key? Thats how the DoD does most of its tactical fleet. The ones that have keys anyway...

Do your keys have numbers stamped on them? Mine do. I'm not sure if it's a key cutting code, part number, or what.

Mine has the Ft125 on it.. which just indicates that its a motorcycle keyblank. But it did come with the reg number dog-tag attached.
Having the reg on it wouldn't necessarily indicate a special key, just would keep track of which vehicles are where.
I've been thrown a key before when arriving... "what's this for?" "its a 1008 key, works in all of them, put it on your key ring." It worked on anything GM. Many a boxed lunch were retrieved from the flight kitchen with that key in hand.

Hmmwv don't even have a key hole. Just a cable lock.

different militaries... different missions


Next time I see an exmod in the parking lot, I may try it.

So it is... So it is

Motorcycle blank ft with a few codes..

Do real rovers use the same moto key? I may be mistaken, but i thought my other one had a big key.... Or did it not have a key... ??? Who knows. I usually switch my toy cars to push button start sans key if they dont have a wheel lock or an easily defeatable one. No fun dropping keys in mud or reaching into pockets with greasy fingers

I wouldn't recommend locking a ST, Defender or otherwise.

I've got a hard top, but in the summer time I don't have windows so locks wouldn't help anyway.
