amazing that this thread dates back to 2008. i live in los angeles, ca. we have what our city calls "public transportation" metro rail. i decided to try it and bike the 1-2 miles to work from the train station. on day 2 of utilizing our metro system, i come back to the park & ride at the gold line station only to start my tundra and have it sound like a really nice lowrider. peek under the truck and see that the cats have been sawed off. such a shame that when you try to save money, be green and all that, it ends up costing 100 times more. if anyone wants to buy a los angeles metro pass, please let me know. haha

I had my truck cats stolen. They do it in about 10-20 seconds with a sawsall. Insurance will cover, but still need $500 deductable. I don't want to have it fixed only to have it happen again. So I am purchasing catlocks. Do a google search for catlock and you will find it.

Toyota sells the catlock2. You can order online for $129 each. You will need one for each cat.

Heavy duty construction to make thieves think twice about spending so much time under the car. They may get it, but not without raising suspicion from the noise.

Tests show that the cable can not be cut with sawsall even after a minute. Excellent deterrant.

I just had my catalytic converter sawed off my 98 4Runner at Stanford University parking structure 1 during broad daylight! I was too shocked to file a police report earlier tonight when I first realized what had happened, but I definitely will be doing it second thing tomorrow morning - first thing is to get it towed to the mechanic :(

Woo-hoo! Found a place near me in Cypress, CA that will replace it for $150 (that's including parts & labor).
Can't believe I'm actually excited to fork over ANY money for something that was stolen from me...*sigh*

I had my Catalytic converters stolen from right in front of my girlfriend's house in Brooklyn New York. Friday Feb 22 2014. I heard that there is platinum in the originals that's why they are stealing them. My mchanic came up with a metal plate to cover them up. I'm getting them done this weekend. This is some real crack head bull shit. I wish i had caught that guy under there.
