A Ford Superduty Truck Owner’s Ravelco Anti-Theft Device Thwarted a Second Attempt

The best Anti-Theft Protection for Ford Trucks!

A Ford Superduty truck owner who had his first truck stolen was determined to find a way to protect his second truck from being stolen. He installed a Ravelco Anti-Theft Device, and precisely one year later, it thwarted another theft attempt.

Our customer recorded the whole event from his driveway security camera. Notice how thieves work in pairs. One to hotwire the truck and the other to drive their vehicle. Watch how they bypassed the Ford doorlock instantly and tried to hotwire the F250 Superduty, but it wouldn’t start. So the thief quickly fled the scene and moved on to steal the next Ford Truck.

The first theft was typical. The thieves broke the doorlock and easily hotwired his truck. His Ford Superduty was gone.

After he bought his replacement Ford Superduty F250, the customer wanted something to give him the peace of mind that his second truck wouldn’t be stolen like his first. So he had the Ravelco Anti-Theft device installed.

A second theft attempt exactly one year later

The second theft attempt occurred exactly one year after the first, but our customer was ready this time. The thief quickly opened the door again and attempted to hotwire his truck, but the Ravelco Anti-Theft device prevented his truck from starting. The thief immediately gave up and moved on to another target.

This customer is grateful for the Ravelco, which has saved him from the heartache and expense of having his truck stolen. He is also glad that the thief was ultimately defeated, and he hopes that his story will help other Ford Superduty truck owners protect their vehicles from theft.

The aftermath: Thieves just steal the truck for its valuable tools. Typically the vehicle is recovered later but the cost of replacing the tools is typically at least $25K. The business’s revenue loss because of canceled appointments is much more. 

Why the Ravelco Anti-Theft Device is So Effective

The Ravelco Anti-Theft Device is effective because it is designed to counter the three things that limit thieves: time, resources, and their overinflated egos.


  • Time: The Ravelco makes it difficult for thieves to start a vehicle. They have to break into the vehicle, cut the wires, and then try to bypass Ravelco’s security system. When the vehicle doesn’t start, they must move on to another unprotected Superduty Truck. 


  • Resources: The Ravelco is a very sophisticated security system requiring specialized tools and knowledge to bypass. Thieves need more time to understand the system. The key to Ravelco’s success is the target-hardened installation. The wires are hidden and not located in apparent locations. This means thieves have to invest time and money to try to steal a vehicle with a Ravelco installed.


  • Ego: Thieves often have an overinflated ego and believe they can overcome any security system. However, the Ravelco is so effective that it defeats experienced thieves. This can significantly blow their ego, forcing them to reconsider their career choice.

“In 2013 we lost 13 vehicles to thieves, with no end to the thefts in sight. We got the vans back, but not the tools, costing the company over $250,000 per year. We tried alarms, clubs, locks, GPS. Nothing worked. Until we installed the Ravelco Anti-Theft Device. Since then, we haven’t lost a single vehicle protected with a Ravelco, and there have been over 30 attempts. We put them on every single vehicle we don’t want to be stolen. In 5 years, it’s saved the company over $600,000.”
