Where is a good location to hide a key underneath the ridgeline?

Re: location for key?

uh, why lol? The RL doesn't really have a very good place under the truck. You could slide it under the tailgate. That is pretty much hidden unless someone knows how to get it to swing out.

Complete;
Sony XAV601BT, Polk DB coaxial/sail tweets, Dynamat, V-LED Ext./Int./Dash, GE NightHawk Platinum, Plastidiped Steels/Grill, Duralast Platinum AGM, OEM Tow Harness/Rear Mud Guards, Weathertech F&R Mats/Visors/Bug Shield.

Behind one of the spokes on a wheel.
One thing I really liked about my old ford was the combination key pad on the door.

When you are going surfing, carrying your key is not a good idea.
I've heard of people useing those lock boxs such as the ones realtors put on houses.

If you are intending to leave it in the hiddy whole while driving, I'd consider a magnet box just under the hood near the wipers. If it came loose you might notice it before it gets lost.

Re: location for key?

There are literally a million places underneath the RL to hide a spare key, crawl under and pick a good spot and stick it with a magnetic key holder. Never had one pop off yet!

I use the Hitch Safe. It was well worth the money and I do not have to worry about the key falling off.

I have to agree, with my last Ford, some 15 years ago, that was the best feature. And it never failed, which says a lot considering the rest of the car.

I got a hitch safe now, but think i want to install a big step to protect the rear end when backing up. It is hard to judge the distance when backing up.

I know about back up cameras, but it seems a pita to run the wiring.
