WIFE IS AT THE NCHA EASTERN NATIONAL FINALS IN JACKSON, MS. THIS IS A BIG HORSE EVEN WHICH BRINGS IN A LOT OF FORD F350, 450, AND 550 TO THE SHOW. PEOPLE SPEND A LOT OF MONEY ON THESE VEHICLES OVER 60,000 DOLLARS. THIS VEHICLE BEING AS NICE AS IT IS, HAS A MAJOR DESIGN FLAW. THEY ARE TOO EASY TO BREAK INTO. HORSE SHOW IS FROM MARCH 7 - 19. AS OF MARCH 13, 2016 IN JACKSON, MS. THERE HAVE BEEN OVER 300 FORD F SERIES PICKUP TRUCKS BROKEN INTO BY WAY OF THE DOOR HANDLE ON THE DRIVE SIDE. THE THIEFS EITHER TAKE A SCREW DRIVE AND PRY THE PLASTIC DOOR HANDLE OFF AND HAVE ACCESS TO THE INSIDE THE DOOR AND UNLOCK. OR THEY DRILL RIGHT BELOW THE PLASTIC AND UPWARD TO HIT THE MECHANICAL DEVICE THAT UNLOCKS THE DOOR AND THEY ARE IN. LESS THAN A MINUTE FOR THEM TO GAIN ACCESS. THEY CAN DO THE SAME THING TO THE REAR DOOR BY PRYING THE PLASTIC OFF AND ACCESS THE INSIDE. FORD NEEDS TO REDESIGN THIS AND GET RID OF THE CHEAP PLASTIC DOOR HANDLES. NEED TO ISSUE A RECALL FOR ALL FORD F SERIES PICKUPS AND INSTALL JIMMIE JAMMERS SO THIEVES CANNOT ACCESS THE DEVICE TO UNLOCK THE DOOR. WITH THE JIMMIE JAMMER, YOU CAN NOT USE A FLATHEAD SCREW DRIVER IN THE KEYLOCK AND TURN IT TO FORCE IT TO UNLOCK. IN FACT, FORD JUST NEEDS TO GET RID OF THE KEYLOCK ALL TOGETHER. YOU HAVE TWO WAYS OF UNLOCKING THE DOORS. KEYPAD OR KEYFOB. WHY DO YOU NEED TO DOOR LOCK.
