I'm not sure how old this unit is, I've had the truck for four years this December and it was already in there. When I got it transferred to me they recommend me to pay the fee and have it checked out to make sure it worked. Maybe I shoulda done that. Lol.

Yeah, I'm kinda thinking about upgraded equipment but, Id like to know where they install these things and hopefully somebody on here has found one.

Hey, where is the common places they like to mount these things?? I've looked behind my glove box, under the steering column, under the front seats, even under the middle, bottom cubbyhole where I think the airbag module is and nothin'..... What kind of trouble to these installers go through to find suitable mounting locations?

I really just wanna find mine to see if it works. See if it has a wire goin to it or if there's a battery backup or something. Maybe the battery is dead. I'm not sure when exactly this thing was put in here, I'm going to assume within the first 4 years of it's life, but it was already in when I bought it.

Try checking behind the side panels at the back of the cab.

I thought about that, especially considering since I seen a few pictures online while desperately trying to find hints, where people had said they found theirs behind the interior C-pillar covers.

It used to be a pretty common place in cars back in the day. They want them to be difficult for a thief to find and rip out, but you have to figure the LoJack techs aren't going to be pulling a bunch of parts out to get to a super crazy hiding spot.

Well, since the lower seatbelt mounts in this 08 of mine are rather impossible to reach when the only T-50 Torx bit you have is attached to a half-inch drive socket, I didn't get the lower panels all the way off but I did get to see all the way down to the bottom with a flashlight and um, nothin'...

They sure did a good one here...lol.

The only other place I'm curious about is behind the cup holder but, I don't know how to remove that without breaking anything.
