Lately, the theft rate has been rising in direct proportion to the priceof platinum and palladium, both of which are precious metals more valuable than gold. The consequences for the unfortunate vehicle owner who has had his or her catalytic converter(s) stolen far outweigh the scrap value of the cat that was vandalized. A replacement converter can easily run several hundred dollars for an aftermarket unit and from $800to $2000 or more for some OEM converters.
Installing a Theft Deterrent Shield under a vehicle is a step that can deter converter thieves. Our formed steel plate attaches to the underside of the vehicleto protect the drive train and exhaust system from the hazards of off-road driving. It also creates an effective barrier that prevents access to the converter. But it can be unbolted (unless you weld one or two of the bolt heads to the plate) for regular services to be performed.
