So I was at a spring training baseball game Sunday and parked next to the stadium. I was gone 2-3 hrs and came back out, started up truck and hear insanely loud ticking. Look under truck and exhaust pipe behind the passenger side manifold is cut 1/2 way through. It appears some thieves attempted to steal my cats but then gave up due to the inaccessibility of them. So way to go Nissan for your hand crushing designs, you saved my cats. Cost 10 bucks to get the cuts welded up.

I would think a socket wrench would be quieter. 8 bolts, cut the O2 wires and you're done. Now what would really be funny is for those losers to cut out a set of resonators and try to sell them.

Glendale AZ must be more of a ghetto than So. Cal. Is it even legal to sell catalytic converters to a recyling place now? I would think they would question you up the ying yang on why you were scrapping a converter off a fairly new vehicle for money. I bet it was probably illegals with a friendly scrap place south of the border or something...

Back in January, we had come cars at work that had their cats cut out in the parking lot. Boeing security contacted Mesa PD and apparently this is an ongoing gig. Who-woulda-thunk..

Palladium is the metal in catalytic convertors. Not sure how much they go for down here. For some reason I'm thinking around $175 to $200.

I plan on ordering DT LT's and I came across a recent post about selling cats, got me thinking I can make some $ back on the headers. I called a few local junk/salvage yards and so far nobody is interested in buying them. I'll call some metal recyclers to check if they buy cats.

yeah they are lucky I didn't catch them. The metal thieves are crazy around here. My boss had the cat cut off his Tacoma up in Scottsdale in our parking lot with the security guard walking around. They reviewed the camera footage and the guys cut off the cat in under a minute and were gone.

palladium and platinum are the metals in them... i sold 2 off of my 99 Camaro SS for $100 a piece. they were fairly small. i think bigger truck cats go for upwards of $200...

I hear ya. My worst fear is that I will catch someone in the act. Being that they are hardened criminals, they will probably come after me since I would be calling the police. I would therefore have to draw and defend myself since they would probably have a sawzall or wrench.

I would feel so bad...really I would.

I'm sure most of those posting would only act out of self defense. Considering in most municipalities, it's ILLEGAL to use deadly force unless it's in defense of life or serious bodily harm.

Now with that said, all of us on TT would never act unless it's out of self defense. Especially posting about it in a public forum.

I'd take a chance with a jury or judge on that. Someone breaks into my house or messes with my stuff they are getting an *** beating if I catch them. You just have to get your story right with the police and it shouldn't be a big deal or move to Texas where they actually advocate for the victims.
