My SUV was stolen over the weekend and i

Looks like it's only the plastic cover

The column is the steel shaft itself, they peeled the cover to expose the ignition. Wotta bunch of aholes.

It's just a plastic piece, what concerns me is how much damage they did to the column itself to break away the steering wheel lock and actuator for the ignition switch itself.
