Last summer came out of an Academy after 35- 40 minutes of shopping (longer than I usually spend ) and got in my suv, started it up, Thought who the hecks firing up their Harley next to me I don't see them. It was my missing c/c. Thought I had a loose or broken header, got home ,whole two foot section was gone. I got in touch with the store mgr. he said to come view the surv. tape. The tape showed two guys in a pickup truck pulled head in to mine, one got under the truck while the other was lookout. The truck had no front plate and he had pulled the tailgate down to obscure the back plate. Apparently platinum is a component in the c/c......Who knew?

Got to watch your gas tank as well.
They got a buddy's tank (plastic) on his Ford Truck.
Punched a hole in it and drained it in his front driveway.
I have 44 reasons and a magnum personality, so don't get caught under my truck or I'll have to share the magnum personality with you!

By posting it in this forum are you hoping to recover it? Believe it or not, it's common and has been for years. CC's and airbags as well.

I think the intent of the forum is to report stolen guns. If we started posting anything stolen, we'd fill up a server and still be no closer to recovering anything. Guns are different and although still a long shot to recover, there's a process and sometimes luck rains.

Good thing diesel owners have already removed their cat...
I actually still have mine in. With the 6.0, the cat, or particulate filter since it's just a big screen that catches "particulate matter" then burns it off, it's the primary sound reducer. And with it off, a 6.0 sounds like a jet on a tarmac. The turbo whistle is ear destroying. I've got a Magnaflow system and over the years, the muffler has lost it's functionality. I've tried getting that piece of the system to eliminate the muffler all together but they won't sell pieces anymore. It comes not accepting the cat and I had a shop actually cut and weld it back in place which is a trick since the cat is only 3 1/2" in and out ad the system is a 4".

Of course a big stick will punch holes in the screen pretty easy. Running a tuner tends to send a lot more "particulate matter" into the screen, and unsuspecting drivers next to and behind me.
