My truck was stolen...

Well, I had that nail in my tire, still do actually..

I left it with PepBoys, they said they would have it done by 9.

I waited around for 30mins or so, left at 7:30pm after handing my cellphone #, last name, and the description of my truck with the guy.

I went over at 10pm, assuming they forgot to call me when they finished...

Closed up, locked down..

Truck hadn't even moved.

So, they have the key...

I have the truck...

Kinda sucks stealing your own truck back, lol.

Wonder if they will even bother calling me in the A.M. to say they ****ing lost my truck...







I had abunch of sharpies, and they had alot of glass windows...

They are lucky I'm not into vandalizing....





Spare keys are fun.

Fuel cut off switch, hmm, sounds interesting. Is it a manual or automatic switch?

Same here... most gas stations actually sell the plug kit too. I ride ATV's so I know all about having a plug kit on me.

Went by Sat. afternoon to pickup my key...

Never got a call from them, the key was just sitting on the desk there, guy was working on the computer.

I said, I'm just here to pickup my key for my truck that I left last night that you all didn't get to, I had to get up at 6am today to get it fixed then go to work...

I just grabbed the key, and pulled the string off, after playing around with it, trying not to be too rude to the guy that wasn't there the day before..

I went to Tire Kingdom to get it fixed, only reason I left it at PepBoys was because they were open, and they said they'd have it done...

I was making a trip to St.Augustine sat. Aft. so I had to have the tire done b4 work.

Start looking for a place that does truck tires for next time. Most of them will do it right away. They kow if a truck is down it's not making money.
Most places today have a guy that comes in does all the split rim on one day. A truck place will have a guy that does them on site.
If you have a compressor, buy a repair kit. The tire with the nail you could fix right on the truck.
