    Renter's insurance. They will cover it all. A buddy of mine had renter insurance and had his van broken into. They replaced everything.

    I think I'd be considering an inexpensive video setup (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16881147011) to monitor the area where you park, and and maybe spend a few nights sleeping in the van with a .45

    Do you have your tools laid out in ready to grab tool bags or toolboxes? If so take them with you inside, they know your truck as an easy target and I think they"ll be back. With my layout it will take some time to gather it all, hopefully too much.

    thats seems cool and priced reasonably.

    or a real good theft deterrent auto alarm , the one with a beeper remote that can sit on your nightstand near your gun so when it goes off it shows broken glass or which door was opened and you can grab gun and run out and take "care of the situation" . Its only 300 dollars installed and works great ..i have one and sleep much better and take less out of my work truck since its been on there.

    Nah you can grab a cheap hard drive for $40 or take one from an old pc you may have collecting dust in a closet. A terabyte of hard drive is only $75 new.

    if they don't cover it, find a new job, drop off and park the truck length wise at the driveway with the keys locked in it, no two week notice. they wanna treat you like a jerk, act like one!
    You have to pay your due's before you pay the rent!

    That would have been a good time to show him what the 12" Crescent was for!
