I don't know what it is but my friends new SD has stickers all over it that say something like "unremovable I.D." apparently it has some kind of id sensor in the trucks parts that you can't get out. It's on all the inside door jams and on the tailgate. Guess they expect it to get stolen and go to a chop shop.

If you are like me I use my tailgate all day and locking it up is not an option until I get home or on the weekends.
To help resolve potential theft I installed a stainless hose clamp around the tailgate fixture with the void that would allow someone to remove.
Below you will find a picture as an example.
