So, I am driving my Lightning this morning, working down in Waco. Pull up to get some fuel, walk inside to buy a bottle of water. As I am filling my truck I notice a couple of shady looking dudes putting gas in their Mustang! So I come out and to my surprise my drivers side Center Caps are GONE!!!! Now before you say I am jumping to conclusion, I am very OCD when it comes to my vehicles... I can only assume one of those jokers owned a L and was missing some center caps... Who knows, all I know is mine were GONE!! They were there when I pulled up... I looked right at them as I was walking in... Them MOFO's got nutz!!! I'm 6'2, 230.. not a little guy by any means... I WISH I had caught them in the act!!! Anyway... Just venting, bought 4 new ones off of Ebay for $109.....:smt013

Damn man I'm sorry to hear that. I live in the central Texas area too. Definitely some unsavory looking characters around here. I get compliments all the time on my truck but I'm wondering how many people be casing my [email protected] when I go into a store. My truck used to be a second vehicle and sat in the garage but I recently sold my daily driver so now the truck is the work horse. It sucks man that people r so dumb. I saw another post on here where someone keyed the hell out of another member's truck. It's senseless.

Yep when someone comes up to me and start asking about my truck I am always thinking in the back of my mind...do they really just like my truck and are being friendly or are they checking out if they can steal it or steal parts off it when i'm not around. Speaking of this I don't have full coverage insurance YET and was wondering how often these trucks get stolen? Haven't heard much about trucks being stolen on here.I do have a good factory alarm that is very sensitive, maybe I should get a stering wheel club too.

Damn sorry to hear that bro.. I would wanna see the footage from the gas station cameras to be honest.. I thought the same thing happend to me once but in my driveway.( was definitely thinking about installing some cameras). a few days later I'm driving my normal route and I recognize something on the ground while I'm at a light sure enough it's MY black center cap.. damn thing had fallen off when I hit a pothole lol ofcorse it had been run over a few times but it was definitely mine.. Charlielightning has caps to sell for like $65 shipped on a new set.

I have to chime in here... These centers do not just fall off unless they have been improperly installed or broken.

When removing mine, I have a difficult time getting them off without knocking them free from the back side (I never use tools to pry them as this will mar the wheels). A pothole would crunch the rim before they came off...

They were stolen. Keep an eye out for the Stang and take his caps if it would make you feel any better.

No, Adam. I must respectfully disagree... Mine were in SOLID.. I avoid bad roads and potholes almost instinctively... lol.

$65 for a set is a SMOKIN deal... I paid $109 on ebay... Thanks for your input.:bigtu

Thank you Charlie... I wish I would have know that you had em too.... One of the members told me about you, but I had already purchased a set off of Ebay.. As rare as these trucks are getting, I may snag another set from you. You ever up in DFW?
