All it took was one weekend trip into downtown St. Louis and Scott Carline, owner of Axleboy, started thinking about all the things on his Jeep that he would be remiss to have stolen: his ARB dual air compressor, a RIPP supercharger, countless tools, an expensive stereo and so much more.
Fortunately for him, nothing went missing during his brief stay, but the possibility still lingered in his mind and continued to trouble him. by Monday morning, Scott felt so strongly about the lacking security on his Jeep and countless others that Axleboy placed an order for several lockable storage items from Tuffy Security Products™, including: glove boxes, under-seat concealed carry boxes, hood locks and several locking rear-deck enclosures.
All of these products are now on display and available for purchase in store.
Fun Info About Automotive Burglaries
According to the US Department of Justice, over 1.4 million vehicles were burglarized in 2010. Among the items that burglars look for and steal are these are some of the most common:
Money (Somebody’s gotta pay for my McD’s)
Mobil Devices (phones and tablets)
Vehicle Registration (If you’ve got a nice car, you probably have a nice home too)
Backpacks and Briefcases
CD’s (believe it or not people still use these)
Car components (HID headlights, air bags, etc)
What can you do to protect your valuables?
With the typical burglary lasting no more than a few minutes, here are a few tips to help deter would-be thieves.
Many of us Jeep owners have already learned (some the hard way) if you don’t want to lose something, it shouldn’t be left in the Jeep. The safest place for anything of value is behind a locked door…at home. Don’t bring it if you don’t need it.
Don’t invite the burglar to take a closer look. Think of backpacks, suitcases, gift bags, charging cords and loose change as invitations. Would-be thieves see these things and immediately think, “I wonder what else is in there?” Whenever possible keep these things locked up and out of sight.
Park in areas with high traffic and visibility. Car burglars want to get in and out as quick as possible without drawing a lot of attention to themselves. Whenever possible, park in well-lit areas, close to building entry points.
Lock your doors…unless you drive a Jeep with a soft-top. We hate seeing a perfectly good soft top get cut up, especially when the windows could just as easily be unzipped. For the Jeep crowd, we’d recommend getting a lockable glove-box, under-seat conceal carry box or a Tuffy™ locking deck enclosure. These minor upgrades can help make your sweet ride a secure one too.

Axleboy is pleased to announce that after 12 years of business, in the St. Peters area, they have relocated to a significantly larger and more accommodating facility only a few miles West.
On January 1, 2017, Scott Carline, owner and president of Axle Boy Enterprises, LLC dba Axleboy, received possession of the building and land located at 1935 E. Terra Ln. in O’Fallon, Missouri. In the weeks that followed, extensive renovations began to reshape both the production and showroom areas, to bring them in line with OSHA and Axleboy standards.
Axleboy officially stopped all production on January 9, 2017 at the Ehlmann Rd. address so that larger equipment and computer systems could be moved to the new location. Within the relatively short timeframe of one week, Axleboy was appropriately staffed and able to resume full service and production efforts on January 16, 2017.
As of January 20, 2017 Missouri’s self-proclaimed Jeep and off-road authority is open and operational with only minor cosmetic updates still in progress.
For all your Jeep, truck and off-road needs, call Axleboy at 636-939-5337 M-F 8:00am-6:00pm.
