Door handles, locks, and thieves

My F350 has been stolen twice in the past three months. As many are aware, Ford hasn't done much to keep people out of their pickup trucks. A screwdriver and 30 seconds grants you easy access without the drama of smashing a window. In addition to the two incidents of GTA, the truck has been rifled through probably a dozen times.

Does anyone have any insights about the Lightning's door locks? Has Ford finally improved them after 20 years of asking?

my f350 alarm went off early this morning, factory alarm on 2017 Lariat which is only activated when handle is pulled (and no fob present) as far as I know. Live in small town outside big city so can happen anywhere. Had a new dodge ram once and they punched through the sheet metal beside the lock cylinder and open the door that way twice same small town. Happens anywhere. I too hope ford made better theft deterance given the price of these things, I have tiny gps trackers in all my vehicles hard to find them if placed well.

Well I just found out that my neighbors cars were busted in. My truck was sitting outside but untouched so I'm happy with that but not happy about not having the security camera feature. @Ford Motor Company Come on Ford
buy a tesla to monitor your ford! I know that was low blow!
