    There are dash cams now that auto upload footage of the exterior and interior of your vehicle to the cloud using 4G LTE, so that you can get footage of the vandals, even if they steal the camera too. Might be worth checking out.

    We should just cut their fucking hand off when we catch them
    WTF!! Yes, I'm 100% with you on the hacking off of hands. Sorry to hear about this shit.

    Hate thieves. Sadly, this kind of stuff happens all too often in my neck of the woods. Sorry to hear.

    My first time question is who steals a tailgate, and my second question is who steals something as big as a tail gate and doesn’t get noticed!? It takes a minute to get those things off

    Purecam allows you to buy their data plan or use a sim card from any other data plan you like. This is the one I will probably get for myself.

    https://shoppurecam.com/purecam/purecam-16gb-card#/

    Blackvue also offers cloud uploads, but you need to have a separate wifi hotspot in the car for it to connect to the internet. At SEMA last year, they announced that they were launching a model in early 2019 that has built in 4G like the Purecam, but so far it hasnt come out.

    https://www.blackvue.com/

    There are a few others too. I think there's one called The Owl, but it turns off a few minutes after the vehicle turns off. Do a search for "cellular dash cams" or "4G dash cam".

    Well, it does, with the key. I usually forget, and because I'm in it multiple times each day, it is a PITA.

    This is a top of the line 2016 F-350

    My Chevy's as far back as 2004 and my Dodges as far back as 2012 automatically lock the tailgate when the doors lock. Ford seems to always be behind the field on simple things like this.

    I haven't gotten a quote yet, but was told these newer tailgates, mine had the integrated step, go for something like $4K, then you have to get it painted.

    I guess the thieves have a ready customer in some shady body shop.

    As for not getting noticed, the security camera gets my left front headlight, and the car to my left, plus everything else to the left. The next camera starts about 20 ft to the right. The entire space I'd a dead zone, and a convenient gap in the hedge as plowed easy access.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
