Just wanted to let ya'll know that I had a theft attempt on my 2010 Tundra this morning at Home Depot in Sugar Land (just outside of Houston). The thieves broke the ignition and messed up the steering coulmn but thanks to the Ravelco Anti Theft Lock I still have my truck. The Toyota salesman told me when I purchased my truck that I did not need any additional security because the Tundra has a factory anti theft system. Don't believe it, I had my last truck stolen with the factory security system. It is a good thing I listened to the Houston cop I met that told me about Ravelco.

Great item, should be standard on all vehicles!

:first:

Did your last truck have an engine Immobilizer?
You cant hotwire a 2007+ tundra, but you can tow one away.

Some added info, Toyota uses rolling cryptographic codes which prevent the code from being copied or replayed from a recorded transmission.
The token (different dynamic code created each time the car is started) must be authenticated in the ECU so simply bypassing and hotwiring will not work.

yeah, but it's too bad. it is a decent product for the right vehicle.

I had a ravelco on my older dodge and believed in it, but I don't think it's necessary in these trucks.
