Found this stupid thing under the dash because of sloppy install and the wire hung down. Red is tapped into OBDII line and other is grounded. The body zip tied to the moulding support.

Me being me with a dark sense of humor, let’s have some fun with it.
Stay tuned .

Mine had a similar one, only wired in with an obdII splitter. Found it day 2 while doing my armorlite. Pitched that shit right in the trash. Should have wired to a 12v battery first...good luck finding that at the landfill...lol.

Pull the SIM card, and try it in a burner phone...
Nah. That doesn’t work.
Im retired from a three letter fed agency. I’ve slapped these on my share of bad guys cars. With some electrical tape, rare earth magnets, epoxy glue, a label maker I would have a neat little pretend DEA or FBI tracker

Now the target. One of my best friends or my 17 year old daughter’s fairly new boyfriend. I just got to make it somewhat easy to find. And let the fun begin. Someone has to keep that fkr on his toes.
Im thinking maybe the label should read DEA TRK-5309. Or FBI TRK-0401. What do you guys think?

You've retired from a federal agency, which implies you're of a decent age, and you have a 17 year old boyfriend? Should we be worried?

Hey man, I'm not one to judge. To each their own 🤣.

If you do mount it under someone's car, might I suggest you also zip tie a harmonica under there close to it? That'll be just weird enough that it could take some time, but would give them a reason to go looking underneath when they wonder what keeps making noise as they drive...

But the harmonica would clue in as a joke. Next time I’ll do the harmónica by itself.
I’ll leave a sloppy antena hanging from it

Speaking of the harmonica prank my JT started to hear like air hiss from the dash area or under. Went up and down with speed and rpm. I was like “now what?” Finally stopped to inspect. The floor plug. Duh.

I've got a guest wifi with the SSID name "FBI Surveillance Van", that I turn on every once in a while. I figure it will keep the neighbors guessing.

Because that joke hasn’t been going around since the 90s……

Question for the OP, was your truck used? I can’t figure out why the dealer would install this on a new vehicle. If it was new, can you explain further to where exactly this was installed? I want to check my truck
