Here is a couple of Pics to try to explain what I thought about..
My fuel flap is on the road side, and the storage door to the water tank and underbed is right in front of it.
It occured to me that if you could drill a small hole, say 1/4" through the rear frame of the storage door frame, into the fuel flap, you could put flat headed pin or nail in it to engage a tab on the fuel door.
That way, when the storage drawer was shut, the pin would be held in, and it would be locked.




A bit of accurate drilling required tho, and the is no tab on that side of the fuel flap, so I would have to TIG one on...
Plan B, would be to use the tab on the other side, and have a spring loaded pin, with a release cable from inside the storage door or even the water flap...

Sorry if this seems a bit crazy... Vicodin is not my favorite way to fly!

Key,
Looks like a plan, but there's still the drilling the tank problem...and I still maintain that clipping the rubber gas line before it gets to the gas pump would negate the locks, and clipping the gas line would create a faster drainage than a drilled hole(and it would be quieter...m

Let's face it, anything we do that would possibly slow them down is better than nothing. Like anything, if someone wants what's yours bad enough, they will figure a way to steal it. Me, I'm doing all I can to keep what I've paid with my hard-earned dollars. After having my home broken into, an alarm system on the house. Once the 'beast' is out and about later this year, I plan on some kind of an alarm system on it as well. Kinda liking the idea of car alarm systems that subtlely tell you that 'You're too close to the vehicle'.....We'll see.....

Agreed.
I do like the idea of putting a Diesel sticker on it too...
Adding that, and "NRA Member" and "I love my Pitbulls" Stickers too!

Or you could get the bumper sticker that says "Trespasser SHOT on sight, survivors will be SHOT again"
