High resell value is one reason vehicles are targeted for theft but probably the exception rather than the rule. Those of us with crappy mini trucks know that even if yours is half beaten back into elemental iron it might still be stolen while you run into the 7-11 just so some jackass can get a starter for $10 from a chop shop.
I'm of the opinion that stuff is made to be used. Never saw the point to sticking an expensive thing away just to prove you have made it. So to nice FJ40 owners using them like they are meant, like Mr. Drive Your Porsche In The Snow, I tip my hat.
