    Thanks! Glad it came back unmolested. I'd make my 90lb pit sleep in the car if he weren't such a giant baby. He's not much of a guard dog.

    Anybody have experience with LoJack?

    I just saw his thread come up on the Nextdoor app. I believe Rob was able to recover his 60. I’m thinking we need to get a group together and find the culprit who’s been ripping off our rigs. I’ve seen 4 or 5 get stolen just this last week, including mine.

    I’ve had my eye on the Winchester 1886 for a while. It’d be an extravagant purchase, but if we get another stimulus check, why not?

    The 1911 might be the second order of business after the kill switch. If only I can figure out how to incorporate the two? .45-70 lever action might be better at filling the would-be thief's underwear full of poop!

    Doors were locked, no broken glass. Probably used a slimjim or coat hanger? Ignition switch was fine, and no wires were pulled out or cut.

    As far as I can tell, no lock cylinders were tampered with and no glass was broken. They probably had a slimjim to pop the lock. As far as getting it running, I think anybody with a moderately worn early 90's toyota key can get these things started. Hell, a popsicle stick would probably work...

    I'd take an advice you've got - direct message me?

    Just picked up a club and going to wire in a switch this weekend, and left the transfer in neutral, pulled the efi fuse. The 5 speed, I would think, would be a deterrent for most. Doesn't help when the thief is a greasy old tweeker that grew up on a 3 speed. 🤷‍♂️

    Thanks! Still can't believe I was able to find it 24 hours later. I immediately picked up a club, pulled the efi fuse after I parked it, and left the transfer in neutral. Going to wire in the kill switch(es) this weekend.

    Wellllll, couldn't be happier right now. Got a text from a friend of my girlfriend saying that they had spotted my cruiser down the street from their house (about 1.5 miles away from where it was stolen), but with different plates thrown on. Showed up to confirm that it was mine, and sure...

    I'm hoping mine doesn't take 9 months to resurface. It's my daily driver for work and dog transporter on the weekends.

    First thing I’m going to do when and if it comes back.

    Thanks for the tip! Someone else just told me that there’s a known Toyota thief that hangs out around peninsula park area. Going to do a sweep around there.

    I'd recommend it. I'm kicking myself in the head for not wiring in a kill switch when I was doing the h55 swap a couple years ago. Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda kind of situation for me. Never thought it would happen.
