How to Prevent Catalytic Converter Theft in your Toyota Tundra

Toyota Tundra Catalytic Converter Plate Security Anti-Theft

Catalytic converter theft is on the rise nationwide. Thieves steal these antipollution devices in a matter of seconds and then sell them scrap metal dealers for several hundred dollars. The converter on unleaded fuel vehicles is a stainless steel shell surrounds a ceramic honeycomb monolith. It is coated with the following metals: platinum, palladium, and rhodium.

These metals are VERY expensive.

How expensive are these metals?

How much Rhodium, Platinum & Palladium  is in my catalytic converter?

Although the quantities vary by model, on average, only one standard catalytic converter contains about 3-7 grams of platinum, 2-7 grams of palladium, 1-2 grams rhodium

Price of these materials on: 5/20/2022

Rhodium – $16,100.00 (per troy ounce) Highest on record: $17,500 (2/4/2022)

Platinum – $977 (per ounce)

Palladium – $2,049 (per ounce)

“Toyota parts department(s) have been quoting as long as 9 months for these backordered catalytic converters.”

The nations largest insurers; All State, USAA and  State Farm have handled three times as many catalytic converter theft claims in 2021 as it did in 2020 — and more than 10 times as many as in 2019.

A replacement set of stolen catalytic converters can cost as much as $3,800 for the often-targeted Toyota Tundra. However, the bigger issue is the short supply of replacement units. Toyota parts department(s) have been quoting as long as 9 months for these backordered catalytic convertors.

A few tips from mechanics and law enforcement agencies to avoid a wrenching experience and a costly repair are as follows:

1. Know if you’re a target for catalytic converter theft

Unfortunately the Catalytic Converter in the Toyota Tundra is very high target item.

2. Install an anti-theft device on your catalytic converter

Install theft deterrent plate, like this catalytic converter security plate that is designed to fit your 2007-2021 Toyota Tundra. The installation is quick and easy. Tacotunes.com also provide DIY videos to help you get the product install in your driveway.

3. Paint your catalytic converter

Local SA police investigator Scott A . . recommends using a high-temperature fluorescent orange paint, such as those sprayed on barbecue grills, on your catalytic converter and then inscribing your vehicle identification number in the painted surface. This makes it traceable, and in theory at least, a reputable scrap metal dealer might decline to buy it.

4. Park your Tundra in your garage if possible

Although thefts occur at grocery stores, malls, movie theaters  . . thieves still target Toyota Tundras at the owner’s homes. Consider adding motion sensor lights and cameras if you need to leave your Tundra in the driveway.

5. Check your car insurance

If you have full coverage insurance, plus collision and comprehensive policies that repair or replace your Tundra   . . . you’re covered, minus your deductible amount. If you have a loan on your Tundra typically full coverage is required. Keep in mind that, if you have a vehicle at high risk for a catalytic converter theft, you might consider lowering your deductible amount. Liability coverage only, DOES NOT cover theft.

What to do if your catalytic converters are stolen:

If your Toyota Tundra’s exhaust is excessively LOUD when you start it, you will know that your catalytic converters were stolen. Here are a few steps that can get you going again:

First call the police and file a report. We also recommend taking photos of the damage.

Aftermarket catalytic converters are sometimes available and generally cost less, but make sure they’re allowed in your state. A muffler shop should know what’s legal in your state. In some cases, an aftermarket catalytic converter will be less desirable and prevent future thefts.

We recommend having your Toyota Tundra towed to the dealer or muffler shop.

Contact your insurance company and file a claim.

While your new catalytic converters are being installed, have them install your new tacotunes.com catalytic converter shield.

Don’t be the next victim! Get your security plate installed ASAP!

How to tune TXD8005

Following the instructions below is crucial to a successful installation. We recommend prepping the following items the day before you begin your installation. This will ensure all the parts are at your disposal. There are a couple of steps where it will help to have a buddy help you out. Not necessary but makes it easier. Do NOT start drinking your favorite beverage until recommend below. Plus be sure to keep your mind sharp. By getting the installation done right the first time you will enjoy years of quality sound in your Toyota Tundra. Shortcuts and rushing through the install will cause issues down the road. Take your time enjoy the install.

VIDEO INSTALLATION SERIES BELOW

Prep Time – 1-3 hours

Prepping the day before the install:

  1. Download test tones and burn to CD. Click here to download test tones.
  2. Mount your crossovers to the provided crossover mounts. (see speaker install video)
  3. Connect the 18g & 16g wiring to the crossovers
  4. If mounting your tweeters in sail panels, prepare your sail panels.
  5. Assemble your amp rack, amplifier, distribution block etc. (see video below)
  6. Assemble your subwoofer / subwoofer box. (see video below)
  7. Watch installation videos to understand the process.
  8. Get your six pack on ice. DO NOT OPEN until instructed! 🙂
  9. Go over checklist and ensure all parts are in the package. We have a checklist that we do on EACH system. But we are human so it is possible a part was missed.

Remove the smaller passenger side seat to make it easier to access amp under front seat. NOTE: Use the rear wall pad (per vid) as a way to protect your carpet from the rear seats.
  7. Remove stock amplifier under front passenger seat. (save the bolts)
  8. Remove front / rear speakers.
  9. Remove dash speakers / tweeters and center speaker if equipped. You can leave them unplugged and in place, but we recommend leaving them unplugged during and after you have completed your install. Note: We offer 2 solutions for JBL equipped Tundras, please see notes below.
