Yeah I only have a locking tailgate to keep the tailgate theives off it (a few scratches in the paint also help deter that).

Get an easily openable tonneau with snaps and don't stick anything good back there!

I had a nice crime of opportunity done to my ram, but since I got the hard roll toneau that locks into the sides of the box and tailgate i've had no such problems. They can cut a soft cover, and unless they manage to pop the crypt-lock i have on it now they can't get in.

I have the roll cover cuz I still use my ram on the ranch from time to time for hay so I need the box open.

you could always post snipers around your truck. And then some more snipers to watch the first snipers...

I looked into the sniper idea, but I don't think it would be cost effective, there is all that food and housing...

I ended up going with the Craftec bed cover that a couple of members on this forum have talked about! Instructions were not the greatest for assembly, but I got it all together properly, and it seems to work very well! It is a full hatch style lift up cover with aluminum frame and gas charged struts covered by vinyl. I added a Bully tailgate handle lock. For my use, this is a great combination. I only lock the handle when I have something in the bed that I am concerned about leaving in there. So, if someone tries the handle when it is empty, they will be able to see that there is nothing in there and will not have to break the handle or the bed cover to check it out!

To combat tailgate theft, (damn, they are easy to take off!) I made my own version of that little bracket that is sold to go over the passenger side tailgate pivot! It came out great, and looks like the store-bought version. I was able to make it out of scrap cold-rolled sheet metal that I had laying around from another project!
