    It started about a year ago and now this is the 3rd time we have been hit, the first time the guy stole wheels and tires off of a new Jaguar XJ-L and a used Chevy Malibu ss. He got caught because he tried selling them to a local scrap yard.

    Seems like a lot of effort... Damn fairy.

    Here's a thought....Maybe Toyota should include wheel locks on all their vehicles.

    Brush guard, TRD exhaust, Hard tonneau cover , Toyota tube steps - was already on truck.
    Check with the scrappers. They should all require ID to process anything.
    I recall a few years ago when I lived in Knoxville, someone hit the Comcast motor pool overnight and absconded with every single catalytic converter.

    The epilepsy foundation box trucks in my old office parking lot got their gas siphoned and a few catalytic converters stolen over a weekend this spring.

    At least those wheels weren't from your Tundra.

    Wheel locks are a joke. All tire companies and Maint shops have all the keys.

    We also had all the spare tires stolen from the TRD off road Tacoma's a couple years ago, they obviously wanted the BFGOODRICH tires. We had no idea when it happened because we didn't realize they were gone until I sold one to a customer and he called me the next day wanting to know where his spare tire was

    Sounds like your dealership needs to up their security.
