      Looking at the door latches on the 2009 trucks, I see they no longer use keys to unlatch the doors. The Lariats and Kings have only the #'d keypads However the other models are not using the keyed door lock any more. Hmmmm. maybe there was a problem.

      Pretty easy for anyone to replace thiers though, took 20 minutes to do my Lariet

        I'll third that.
        Well, it's not really that long of a story... i purchased some color cameras, installed them outside, one by the door, one facing the pk lot. The cops said he probably would not return, however, criminals being dumb, he came back the following weekend. I came in to check the new cameras with my son and lo and behold, there he was loading his truck on camera i called the local PD and they came down to watch the video... they said they couldn't make out the plate good enough to track him down, about two months later, after showning everyone i know the pictures of his truck, one of my freinds called and said he saw the guy on the hiway, he gave me the plate # and i called the police once again, they ran the plate and track him down, issued a warrent, made the arrest... when they questioned him he tryed to say he'd never been to my town, then they showed him some pics... and he confessed. Faced with jail time at his age of 70 yrs. old, he pleaded to pay restitution in luie of jail, the judge settled on 50% of replacement cost... i got paid... now he got a lawyer who says he was wronged by having to pay more than what he got for scrap price???... i say too F-ing bad for him, but it's up to the legal system....

          should have made him pay 100% replacement cost, screw the fact he was stupid enough to sell it as scrap, you cant buy it back at scrap price. he got off way too easy if ya ask me. just kuzz he is stupid is no excuse. who is paying for the lawyer, cort appointed payed for by tax payers. more $$ out of the working guys pay check so he can get off easy.

          did the crime at 70, better be ready to do the time at 70.

            Yeah, the judge was wrong in discounting the restitution like that. He confessed, so he's accountable for all of it. If it was stereo's or laptops, a fence is only going to pay 25% (if that), so why would it be any different for steel scrap?

            I'm so disgusted that our nation has become a bunch of ACLU pansies who seem to think criminals have equal rights to non-criminal citizens (and have a feeling it's only getting worse under bama). You waived your rights as soon as you violated someone else's.

              yea, what he said. he should be paying you 125% to cover your expense of having to go get it again. gas and time do not just fall out of trees.
              as for the " criminals have equal rights to non-criminal citizens " they tend to have more, they get a layer 4 free. the victim gets squat..

              the hole country is turning into pansy azzed turn the other cheek and he couldn't help himself sissy's. time to give the rights back to the victim. after all he is not the one that chose to take part in the crime is he.

                Sorry for all that loss! I agree with fun4now and all the rest of you...."Justice" System is unfair for all the good people. I still don't understand why you can't rig your car or truck to shock someone trying to break into your vehicle or house I had co-workers that spent 5-10 years in jail for B&E and they don't understand why people still hate them. Their comeback: "WHAT'S WRONG? I PAID MY DUES!!!!" I just explained to them that I don't think that people are happy or don't see them as "paying their dues" by being in jail....The victims didn't get their property back, trauma from their house being broken into, and the tax payers had to pay $50,000/year to house you in jail!!!!!!!!
                duh
                I'm not late...

                  anyone ever see the thing on tv a couple years ago that was to help prevent thieves and it was a flame thrower type thing that came out from under the driver and passenger doors? i highly doubt we will ever see anything like that on the road but on the show they were using dummies for their demonstrations... as bad as it may be if i had a nice new rig and someone was trying to steal it i think id get a kick out of hearing what kinda words came out of their mouths and what kinda looks were on their faces when them flames came a rollin

                    i saw that, i think it started out in england. bummer is its illegal, but i guess its ok to car jack with a .45. ya just cant use a flame thrower to defend your self.
                    just think how many rights you would be taking away from that poor fella with the .45 trying to steel your car.

                    i'm all for it, i think if a fella pulls a gun on you. you should have the right to defend your self with any thing you can come up with, including a flame.
                    i wonder if liquid oxygen would be denying his rights, after all its just air.now that would be fun.

                            The primary issue with electrifying the exterior and the flamethrower is that they're indiscriminant. The problem with modern law, is that it's somehow become illegal to injure someone who's in the process of stealing from you. I see these as mutually exclusive issues, but our laws don't.

                            I spoke to the police chief back when I was installing stereos about putting razor blades on the back of the deck so that when someone reaches behind it to yank it out, they slice their fingers. It's not a threat to the owner, because they know there's razors back there - but that's considered an attractive nuisance to the police. Somehow owning something that someone else might want to take is now "our fault." Mind you, this was back in the early 90's, but still... When did owning nice stuff become our fault that someone would want to steal it and we somehow have an obligation to not hurt them when they try to? If I had my way, there wouldn't just be razors under the dash, there would be a guillotine!


                            It's kind of expensive, but you could rig a halon fire extinguisher system in the vehicle and hope to suffocate the criminal. Just deny knowing that it's the likely outcome if anything comes up. You just wanted a fog that didn't leave a residue.

                              Ford's locks on the Superduty is not much for security. You can stick a screwdriver in the key slot, take a pair of pliers, turn the screwdriver and sheer the lock cylinder. They are also easy to pry the whole handle assembly out of the door. Some is manufacturing an aftermarket reinforcement or shield to help prevent theft by doin this
