    As the title says, Im looking into beefing up security on my Runner. I will be moving at the end of the year to either Tallahassee FL, Norman OK, or San Antonio TX. Oklahoma Im not worried about, but Tallahasee sees 1300 car thefts a year and SA Texas has a fair amount. So Im looking to add beefed up security, If anyone has upgraded theirs or runs a recovery service like LoJack what are your experiences and what do upgraded sytems offer. On the dashcams, my old man had a hit and run recently and made me think it may be a good idea to have one since I commute a lot especially in the spring, plus to capture some cool recordings while chasing storms.

    Norman has it's share of vehicle burglaries, though it is an area I feel generally safe in.
    I think you should be more concerned with standing out, so consider a cam setup that isn't too obvious. Also, don't have tons of accessories or valuables on/in your truck... if that's possible.

    I keep a lot tools and other steal worthy things in my truck, but I have 5% tint and the cargo cover so it is impossible to see in my truck. However, my truck itself stands out with lift bumpers and more being added in the future, Im concerned they just would want to take the truck as a whole.

    Yep, you need a good multi-channel dashcam. I'd offer advice here, but... I need a dashcam too!
