Have you heard about the rise in tailgates being stolen?
A report from the National insurance Crime Bureau says that tailgate theft is rises quickly in the US.
Most tailgate thefts go unreported because the cost of repair is often less than the truck owner's insurance deductible. The rise has been sharp though, with three thefts in 2008 moving to more than 500 in 2012.
GM and Ford have manual locking tailgates which means that people lock them less frequently and they are easier to steal. Chrysler is one step ahead and has automatically locking tailgates, which has helped to battle against those pesky tailgate thieves.
Be careful where you park your truck, that's all I'm saying.
