Pickups: 10 Most Stolen Vehicles

As the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) released its annual Hot Wheels report, which lists the 10 most stolen vehicles, it concluded that full-size pickup trucks from the Big Three U.S. automakers made the list.  The report gathers its information from the vehicle theft data that is submitted by law enforcement to the National Crime Information Center.  There they determine the vehicle make, model and model year that were reported most stolen in 2013.  The report also performed a state-by-state analysis and what they found was that pickups were the most stolen vehicle in nearly half of the U.S.  When the NICB puts out their annual report they also include helpful tips to prevent a vehicle from being stolen such as, locking your car and taking your keys with you.  Also, having things like a warning device, immobilizing device or tracking device is a good precaution to help prevent theft.

Load'N'Go service bodies by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies, such as the SecurityTop, are equipped with stainless steel, double locking T-handles, and made to protect expensive cargo from both theft and weather damage. They can be transferred from one pickup to another with optional four-corner lifting jacks, a crane, or a forklift via the built-in forklift tunnels. The Security Top fits all major makes of pickup trucks such as Chevy, Dodge, GMC and Ford short or longbed models. Some of its features include 2000lb capacity on floor above drawer, 1000lb capacity drawer, and double locking compartments (cylinder and padlock).
