Is it OK for them to open the trunk to place the device? What about a door, a gascap, a tailgate? When do we draw the line?

If it's not tampering with your car to place a tracking device on it. Is it fine for me to go around looking under bumpers for one to take?

I'd love to get my hands on one, I've got enough EE experience to have some fun.

No, the police cannot open your trunk without a warrant. They can't even search your trunk, under most circumstances, when they arrest you.
