just so you know a slim jim is not the only way to get into a bronco. Those little triangle windows can be opened with special tools that come in a slim jim kit. You just slide the tools past the rubber and you can get the locking latch to unlock and pivot upwards. Sorry to hear about your truck.

if it's just in front of your house that you're worried about just get a really loud alarm...i hate the things but it sounds like you need one. remember, if somebody really wants in they can always just break the window...maybe you need to move out to the country where that crap doesn't happen.


It's a multi-purpose passenger vehicle and it eats SUVs for breakfast...get it straight!

Ya know how you feel. Ive been broken into a few times and have lost some cds and a camera. I was thinking of getting one of those Tuffy consoles for the middle thats solid steel and not plastic. Lets see them get into that.

I'd give the baseball bat idea a second thought the way things usuallt go either the punks will have a gun or it will be you that goes to JAIL.In either case it's just not worth it.

all very good points. just needed to vent a little, as even the cops are like, what do u leave stuff in your truck for. as soon as i am done with school, the country is where i am moving.

what do u think, full unbreakable plexiglass windows, and shave the door handles so the doors cant be opened if they pop the lock? ;)

I live in North Jersey too. We have two problems here. Theifs and Canada geese.
After my shop got broken into twice, I got an alarm. That didn't stop them from trying...it just stopped them from succeeding. I swear the next time I catch one of those crack addicts, I'm gonna kill him, shove a flag of his home country up his a$$ and float him down the Passaic River.
I heard leaving the dead carcass of a Canada goose around works well at keeping them away so it should work well for the theives. LMAO

I detach the face plate when I'm in rough areas and stow the CD binders above in the overhead console/shelf. If these guys truly are on drugs they won't have the brains to notice the overhead shelf.

Take heart, 10 to 1 these guys hated your CDs and got no enjoyment. I know they'd be mighty disappointed with my dinosaur rock.

Dudley, we have the Tuffy 12.5" Series II console in our 96.
A nice unit!
http://www.tuffyproducts.com/consoles/stereo.html
some have been on e-bay, and a few aftermarket firms carry the Tuffy consoles now, but at not too much of a discount. We bought it directly from Tuffy.
Also, bought the wolo vent wind. lock at Pep Boys for $3.95 last week
http://www.wolo-mfg.com/sec.htm

of course, these are only to slow someone down, the avg creep woill be frustrated and prob just damage the bronco in frustration.
and, we have a security cam set-up..working on an in-vehicle wireless cam unit now (12vdc powered, low draw)
