New Door Lock Cylinders

So I have been thinking about some different door lock cylinders for my truck. I have been noticing a lot of break-ins on the site for the past 6 months. Yeah some are through the windows but I have seen some damaged locks. So I remembered something I wanted to do to my RX7 that could work for our trucks. A lot of the import guys with a lot of mods would do this mod to keep their cars a bit safer.



Solex lock cylinders. Any thoughts?

I wouldn't bother pissing thieves off, they tend to mess stuff up in anger. But just stealthy is the safest thing IMO.

I don't know if there are any US distributors. The website on the bottom of the page is to a UK distributor. I was thinking after i get power door locks in I will just cut the rod or I may try and recreate the led lock mod.
