Default Thieves Ughh..

So i have an 01 Silverado (in the avatar). It had these running lights i believe is what they are called. Well all they are is a plug and then they snap into the plastic holes under the front bumper. Well after owning this truck for 9 years i finally just had my third complete set stolen. GOD DAM IT. im tired of replacing them i pay like 35 bucks a light and no less then 8 months later someone pops them out and walks off. What can i say

get different ones, and bolt them on...hell, I would have done that after the first set were stolen

definately not condoning thievery, but theres also no reason to (continually) make it easy for them

The factory lights don't just snap in, at least not on any of the Silverado's I replaced them on for the 5 years I was a tech at a Chevy dealer. That and they cost more than $35 each.
