Not a huge deal, but somebody stole the antenna off of my truck last night. WTF is wrong with people? I guess it's good I mostly only listen to satellite radio, but still, that's pretty shitty.

That's pretty weak :disappoin... at least they didn't scratch it all up or key it in the process (I assume if they did we really would have heard about it). As long as it's not permanent or costly, you just gotta count yourself somewhat lucky.

People might make fun of us "Southern ********," but living out in the country near the cows, chickens and soy bean fields has it's advantages. There are a lot of people who love the big cities (in fact thrive there), but you'd be hard pressed to pay me enough money to live in one.

Actually, most people know that we country boys are probably "packin' iron". ;)

Mine almost vibrated loose, I was washing my truck and found it loose, had to turn it 3 times to make it tight again. Just to to a junk yard doubt you have to find a toyota specific one.

Well this isn't very surprising. Insurance is high in Rhode Island, Mass and to some extent Conn because people drive with their head in their asses. Don't even get me started on when it's actually raining or heaven forbid.... snowing :eek:

Tried2Live, I've got an extra OEM antenna just chillin' at my place. I bought a stubbie antenna, kept hitting the parking garages. I can send it to you if you want. PM me and we can work something out.

I think you should track him down, slit his entire body with gashes from a razor knife, then give him an alcohol bath.
That's how they handle things "Vegas Style"... it's assumed that you would just add another hole in the desert when you're done. I love Vegas.

People do the strangest shit.

About 8 years ago, I had an '89 S-10 and someone stole my passenger side windshield wiper....took the whole thing off the spindle. At least they were nice enough to leave the drivers side wiper :confused:

You have got to be kidding me. Last week I picked up a replacement at Autozone, and it was stolen AGAIN this afternoon!!

I wasn't really mad about it before, but this time I'm pretty pissed off. I had that thing screwed in tight too, so they had to have used a wrench for it. Bastards.

Would be cool if you could put some fire to it via electricity when you aren't around. Don't feel too bad though, I had my car stolen twice. Luckily it came back both times. No pity for thieves............12 ga w/#4 Buckshot awaits.............ps thugs will steal ANYTHING

I've worried about someone stealing the cleats out of the bed rails. You know, just to do it.

Does everyone leave them in there, or just put them on when you need them?

I had someone steal a driveshaft from under one of my Mustangs. I coasted backwards out of the driveway, put it in 1st, gave it some gas, eased up on the clutch and nothing happened. I looked in the driveway at the big oil stain and the 4 bolts laying on the ground and figured it out. The worst part was the neighbor accross the street saw someone under the car at 4AM with a flashlight and she assumed that it was me working on the car.
