    It doesn't help that its a safe bet that you can often find a firearm in a Raptor... Don't think criminals haven't caught on to that as well. The OP was lucky he had a vault!

    Could replace the driver side handle with one that doesn't have a key hole. Eliminates the punched lock

    If you’re getting jimmi jammers you may want to get the one for the tailgate also. It’s also just as easy to remove a tailgate and apparently there is a ready market for those and it’s an expensive item to replace.

    If someone wants to get in, they will. There's no amount of engineering that will fix that. If there's no weak points in the lock assembly, they'll just break the glass. You can break into any automobile by breaking the glass.

    The point is having a design flaw with the lock that makes it take 3 seconds to break into the truck makes our trucks a prime target. Otherwise they might pass our truck by and break into something else. A lot of thieves don't like to break windows because it's noisy and it's a guaranteed alarm. When they broke into my truck the alarm never went off.

    Not sure what happened there. Trucksecurity.com is where I got mine. Front door kit comes with barrel delete cover too

    I considered doing this but not sure what I’d do if the battery dies after I jimmy and lock proof the truck. Break the window?

    If you're going to do all the other stuff, I wouldn't. If you wanted to just replace the handle and eliminate the lock hole, then yeah. If the battery dies (how many times has this happened to you, ever?) I'd call pop a lock and have them airbag the door.

    Do you know what triggered your alarm? Do you have the Ford Ultrasound "Perimeter Plus" system upgrade? I am under the impression that if the door lock is twisted after getting punched in then the alarm gets disabled since the truck thinks a key unlocked the door.
