I have had a catalytic converter stolen off of my vehicle in the past. Are 3rd gens still being targeted? what products are available to prevent this?

Tyler this was huge from 2007-2010 or so they would go under car, cut off catalticconverters, and sell/recycle them. I have not heard of it happening as massivly as it was in the last. Mid skids make it harder i think

So factory we have the little bars that go over the cats. But with skids you remove it and bolt them on. Just seeing them on I would turn around and try someone else’s
