Model description page for
Ford Super Duty and Excursion

The photo to the right shows one popular method of breaking into your Ford F250, F350, F450 Super Duty or Excursion.

The thief pry's into the door under the handle to get at the lock rods inside the door. Then, they force the rod to move and unlock the door!

It's fast, easy and quiet, making this a favorite among thieves. >

This picture was sent to us by a customer who luckily had the Jimmi' Jammer™ already installed on his truck. You can see the scratches on the plate where the thief tried to get at the lock rods. >>

Another popular method is to "Punch" the lock straight into the door cavity. This is also very easy to do since the handle and lock holder are all made of plastic!

What's the solution?

Read on...


Above: Actual customer photo. Lucky he had the Jimmi' Jammer™!

< The photo to the left shows a Jimmi' Jammer™ plate mounted inside the door. The plate surrounds the lock cylinder, (toward the left of the photo,) reinforcing the plastic holding the lock in place and blocking access to the lock rods inside the door. (Lock rods are not shown here for clarity.)

Notice the circular clamp around the lock cylinder holder. This clamp reinforces the lock cylinder holder and adds support behind the plate for strength.

Mounting the plate inside the door also helps prevent the thief from pulling the entire handle away from the body far enough to stick a tool into the door cavity and get at the lock rods, another favorite way to break in to your truck.

 

What about rear doors and doors that don't have a lock cylinder on them?

On rear doors of a four door truck, or Excursion, the plates are still necessary. The lock rods inside the doors still are accessible by a thief who knows how to get at them. Also, the door latch assembly is just below the handle on these doors and can be easily reached with a screwdriver and/or short piece of wire. Installing the rear plates will help prevent access to the latch and rods inside the door.

The photo to the right shows the inside of a rear door. The Jimmi' Jammer™ plate is installed (center of photo) and you can see the door latch mechanism below and to the left edge of the photo. For obvious reasons, we won't further describe how they get in, but suffice it to say, they can and do!

If your front passenger side door doesn't have a lock either, you still need a plate on that door too! By pulling the handle away from the door slightly, the thief can get at the rod running across the door cavity, even though there is no lock cylinder.

 

Special Note for Super Duty and Excursion owners

Are you considering swapping your front door handles out with rear door handles to get rid of the lock cylinders?

Many SD/Excursion owners are doing this modification. It is not a difficult process, and it may provide some visual deterrence. However, there are a few important things you need to know before you do this:

1. Although it does eliminate the lock cylinders, it DOES NOT eliminate the possibility that a thief can get in through the handle assembly. There are other lock rods inside your door, such as the manual lock pull inside the cab, that are still accessible even when the lock is gone. That is why you will still need the Jimmi' Jammer™ installed even when the locks are gone! If you use rear handles on front doors, get our rear door kits, PN 103010 for both front and rear doors!

2. Keep your old handles, locks and rods in case you want to put them back in for the sale or trade-in of the vehicle. Some dealers don't want to take vehicles with this type of modification.

You may also want to check out our new PunchPlug™ product rather than buying the rear door handles. Check it out here.

We have a couple of different models for your Super Duty or Excursion. Use the chart below to find the right kit part number for your vehicle, then visit our dealer page to see where you can buy a set.

Attention 2008 and newer Super Duty owners!

Not long after the new tailgates came out, we started getting calls where a thief tried (or succeeded) in breaking out the tailgate handle lock to get the new style tailgate off the truck. The new step included tailgates will fit older trucks, so they are now a hot item, and they are very expensive to replace.

One dealership even had some lifted off their lot even though the handles were locked! It was due to their request (and help) that we have developed a Jimmi' Jammer™ plate for the new style tailgate handle.

This tailgate theft deterrent bolts inside your tailgate to the back of the tailgate handle. The plate surrounds the plastic lock holder and a provided circular clamp helps reinforce the assembly to prevent the lock from being punched into the gate or spun around in the holder.

We also recommend using our other tailgate theft deterrent, the Gate Keeper™ on your tailgate. This additional layer of protection is inexpensive, easy to install and could save you big bucks and headaches! More Gate Keeper™ information.

 


Your tailgate is vulnerable too!

The photo above shows the new Jimmi' Jammer™ plate for the 2008 and newer Ford Super Duty tailgate handle. (Removed from tailgate for clarity.)

The plate wraps around the lock cylinder holder, then the circular clamp helps reinforce the plastic lock holder and provide additional support behind the plate. You can see here that the plate uses the factory handle mounting stud and nut, so no cutting or drilling is required.

New Product!
Due to customer requests, we have added a Jimmi' Jammer™ application for the 2008 and newer Super Duty tailgate handle.
See description above.
113475 for your tailgate handle (2008+)

See our installation tutorials to see an installation with photos for this vehicle.

Notes:
1. The rear door kits, PN 103010 is a new addition to our line based on customer requests. Yes, the thieves are able to break in through the rear doors. Also, we recommend putting a plate on the front passenger door even if there is no lock cylinder on that door.
2. PN 103000 is being phased out and replaced by PNs 103001 and 103002. PN 103000 will still work fine on 99-06 vehicles, but is recommended for vehicles with lock cylinders on both front doors. Vehicle model years 2007 and newer should use either PN 103001 or 103002 for the front doors, and 103010 for the rear two doors on 4 door vehicles.
3. Tailgate handle kit PN 113475 will fit only the 2008 and newer style tailgate handle. (Rectangular shaped.)
