Half the time the bastards are just selling them for cash, so the economics of cost don't apply. The other half are just chitheads too cheap to buy their own parts, bust a light, take two because they're a matched set.

Lowest of the low stealing things you don't need. I could see food in dire circumstances, but that's about where my tolerance of theft ends. That and at the end of a Ruger Mini-14.

Any details on the lock you use? One of my concerns running a cab on the truck that locks, etc. is the tailgate doesn't lock, so kind of pointless to have a locking top.

Reading this post got my warped little mind to thinking about the perfect solution to that kinda' problem. Mount a metal strip to the inside of the tailgate handle wired to a hot wire that you can arm and disarm by a toggle switch in the cab,, you'd know if someone tried stealing your stuff by the smoking corpse lying behind your truck. You'd just have to make sure and rig up a little blinking LED or somethin' so you wouldn't forget it was armed.

Anyone have an idea roughly how much to replace the wires and process?
some people are just stupid.

it probably would have been faster to just unclip the bulbs instead of having to get the wire cutters out and clip the wires

What it looks like is someone had their lights stollen and they needed replacement lights and connectors to fix their truck.
I think that anyone that would steel something off another persons truck should be dealt with sevier penelity.

I quit taking my Cuda to auto shows beacuse lately people are getting parts stollen off their cars in the parking lot. Mirrors, trim pieces, etc.
I ran a switch from the tail gate to my alarm system. It is not the prefect answer, but it is better than nothing.
