Is Gen 3 just as easy to break into?

Looking to get back into a Raptor, wondering if they addressed how easy it was to break into and steal, still the same?

Also...how's the new 5-link rear suspension?

The glass is still the same afaik. 5-link…awesome!!
ha - yup, that's always an easy way, but the Gen 2 lock was easy to punch out and get in without breaking glass. There was an aftermarket kit that folks were buying to prevent. Then once inside, there was a fuse they could pull yada yada - anyway, seems like they didn't really address it, which is unfortunate.

The Gen 3 does have a new/different
Protection set-up that looks like it will make break-in more difficult. Hard to say exactly as I never tried stealing a Gen 2 or 3! Lol… If you compare the 2 they are different for sure.…check out YT videos of Gen 2 issues and compare those to Gen 3 set-up.
