I can't believe how many people here actually "lock" their doors... Now I lock my Tuffy on the regular, but never the doors.

Ha... Looks like I'm not the only forgetful one. Dennis, I tried to get in through the sliding rear windows; I'd like to suck start a .45 after an hour of driving due to the rattling, but yep, they refused to budge when I pried on them. Perhaps bad form.... I know that the next time I lock myself out, it will be in the wilderness somewhere without access to a yardstick or wire hanger.

I'd be interested to see some easy to use theft prevention measures in use such as the fuel cutoff. Something easy to access yet hard to detect for the "hoodies...."

I don't even know if I have a key to lock my 110. I tried once and I was afraid the key was going to break. I dot have anything to steal in my Defender.

Just about any similar sized key would unlock my rear door.

I am getting my 110 ready for a round the world trip and am doing a few things to make it "theftproof"... take a look on my thread build on expedition portal... http://www.expeditionportal.com/foru...he-world/page7

Shayne - Question, Do you have a parts list of that setup? I think this might be the ticket... I'm about to fit the Atlantic British fuel filter kit and will be cutting into the lines anyway. Might be a great time to do this.

On second thought, would cutting power to the fuel solenoid itself be less problem prone? One less mechanical item to fail?
