  1. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    Ha!! Brilliant. I barely logged into Reddit in 2022. Will try harder.
  2. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    To be honest, I don’t get the reference!
  3. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    Build Six begins! I’m still waiting on the settlement from the insurance. Fingers crossed that my mods will be included! Had to get a new ride though, and JTRDs are hard to come by. This is a new 2022. I have the new SUV Club, and I made room in my garage to park inside. It *just* fits. Re...
  4. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    And now I have to watch the movie again. All work productivity out the window!
  5. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    Community is *everything*. We’re all in this together. I was buoyed when my neighbour, a native of China, told me my original FB post about my Jeep being stolen was shared by others in our community on Weibo! (Huge Chinese population in my ‘hood.). I was touched. The better we get to know our...
  6. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    Loved this site. This is the importance of math, peeps! It helps you be a critical thinker. FWIW, I did find the claim of millions of installations and zero losses to be a bit dubious when I first went to the site (after the first recommendation much earlier in this thread). How would they...
  7. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    And they claim 'hardened wiring' behind the dash portion of the plug, but the install location makes it vulnerable--and while that wouldn't necessarily mean it could be defeated easily, I am not keen on having it be so accessible. Ugh... goddamn thieves, giving me ulcers.
  8. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    I actually already have one... but I had let the batteries die and hadn't recharged them since September! The detective said he'd seen a lot of Ring footage over the years and all they ever show are two guys with hoods and masks, vehicle lights coming on, and the vehicle driving away...
  9. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    That’s actually the current plan now. Waiting to hear from the dealer in St Catherine’s on whether or not I need to head down there or if there’s someone closer to install.
  10. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    Thanks... I shudder to think of what my premium will become with the next one.
  11. Where did you mount your iDash or other 52 mm gauges?

    On my recently-stolen 2022 JTRD, I'd had the Bank Derringer and PedalMonster along with the iDash 52 mm gauge. I had mounted it using their suction-cup mount up in the top-left corner of the windshield and ran the cable down behind the A-pillar. I'd like to see what others have done for their...
  12. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    Hey Jeremy! I had your beautiful ARB dual compressor mount installed on my dearly departed. You can be sure I will be ordering another once I get the new JT. It is a thing of beauty.
  13. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    Thanks everyone for the kind words and advice. A note about AirTags--I'd thought of that a long time ago but Apple very wisely implemented a security feature shortly after they came out which negates some of that utility as a secret tracking device: if an AirTag that is not paired to your...
  14. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    It is a never-ending arms race between security measures and cheap, easy technology to defeat those measures. The manufacturers can likely do more, but there's always that tradeoff between effective security and what the average or majority of users are willing to do--and in the business...
  15. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    Good question. Probably not, now that I think about it. The key fob itself is emitting a signal every so often, or constantly (not sure which), and that's what the keyless entry/proximity sensor is 'listening' for. Disabling it likely doesn't tell the key fob to stop transmitting.
  16. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    I had seen that on their site, but hadn't done the firmware update on my Tazer. The shitty thing is the thieves probably look for such things immediately. Pull it out and re-connect the plugs and they're off. Of course, it takes serious patience to get those plugs back in. I had the...
  17. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    Geico isn't a think up here in the Great White North, and the last time I looked at them when I was living in the 'States (over the previous 20 years--up until last Feb), they were way more expensive than what I had been paying with State Farm. Gawd I miss State Farm, they were the *best*. I...
  18. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    I don't recall. I had been installing a part onto the bed rack with the back end in the garage, so I think I had just pulled forward and parked like that--so in the "ready to drive away" position, goddammit.
  19. 2022 JTRD stolen from driveway (don't let it happen to you)

    Exactly correct. I did not have such an add-on. At least I had the “depreciation clause delete”. I have every receipt and photos of everything installed—as I did them or just afterward. If that doesn’t help me this time, well… it will be done as you described, next time—frequent updates to my...
