Default Stolen Shocks

Can't believe this crap, some one stole the rear shocks off my truck last night while it was in the driveway. I hope I find the person that did this.....

Now insurance costs for the Raptors will take a jump because these are the new hot item for thefts.

That's crazy. Look around for a dirt ball mudder rig with those shocks on them.

Sounds like easy money for shithead thieves. What are those bringing on ebay? Have any gearhead types that live in your neighborhood?

That sucks dude. I've heard it happening a lot actually. I've got 4 raptor fox shocks for my k5, and trying to come up with some sort of locking pin so they can't be easily taken.


Keep your eye on pawn shops and Craigslist/eBay.


And no I didn't steal or buy your stolen shocks. Cuz I got two sets at the same time and bought them all months ago.

By chance is there a part # on those shocks to connect them to the vehicle they were removed from?

Paint the replacements pink or weld the nuts to make them a bear to get off.

Weld the nuts and then paint the nuts pink so I know not to waste my time trying to steel them again.
