Dude thats sucks you got locked out but it is really easy to break into our trucks, almost too easy, Ive had to break into mine a couple times and you cant tell I ever have

But you think our trucks are easy the 97 and older body style fords have the little wing windows that make getting into them very easy my friend has locked his keys in his truck mutiple times and I kept having to help him

sorry i didnt read this sooner, i do it all the time, i keep a coat hanger under my bedliner, just bend a 1/2" 90 degree angle at the end, straighten the rest and slip it right down between the door and roof, easiest from standing in the bed. get the 90 between the lock and door panel, twist and pull up. ive found that the passenger side of my truck is a little easier, and doing it with window tint, at night, especially in the rain, really blows lol. like i said, i do it all the time.

and that video is histerical

Please is right... give me a break. You don't think someone who wants to get in your truck really doesn't already know how to open it? Slim jim and 3 seconds and I can have any of your trucks open. I used to do lockouts with a towing company. A thief would be just as quick

Because a coat hanger is an amateur tool. It will work but sometimes it isn't easy. If your truck has the lock that slides up and down which correct me if I'm wrong but I believe all the Rams have, a slim jim works like a charm. Like I said before with the right bend in it I can open my truck on about 3 seconds. Did it a couple weeks ago when I was working on my truck. Turned my key on and forgot that my remote start auto locks the door when the ignition is turned on. End result, I locked myself out.
