Killswitch ideas

Hey gang

I'm gonna be throwing a killswitch into the jeep this weekend, and was wondering if any of you have one installed. And if you do, where is it tied into, like to what component. I was thinking of tying one into the wire from the ignition to the starter, but closer to the starter, under the hood so it still couldn't be jumped. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Carlos

I used some creative wiring for a fuelpump cutoff. I used some wire an inline fuse and a toggle switch in my glovebox. Tied the wires into the fusebox. Its easy to defeat if you know what your looking for but their not that smart if their trying to steal my jeep, i can hear that thing from a mile away, and they better be faster than 1800fps.

I found I had one by accident. I was under the dash dressing in the wiring for lights and the ham gear when I found a toggle switch in a zip-tied harness. Flipped the switch back and forth. Nothing happened, so went about my merry way. Went to roll out of the garage and she wouldn't start. After the wave of horror passed I started rechecking my work and remembered the switch. Flipped once again and presto, the YJ sprung to life. Could have been real interesting to find it the hard way one hard bounce too many on a trail run. I have now installed it in a permanent location and use it.

how does that fuel pump cutoff work? I read something about fuel injected engines, and how they can be buggy with a killswitch wired into the fuel pump because of fuel line pressure or something crazy, i dont remember. Also, will it start with that cut off, does it start and then cut off i mean from burning the residual fuel thats already in there, or does it just not start? thanks man

Happy 4th! Itll start for a second then die out. I havent had any problems with it, its been two years so far. I installed it cuz I leave it open in the city, just a little peace of mind.

x2. You must have gotten yours when they were on sale. I haven't been able to afford one yet. My friend has one and they work great.

I just put a toggle switch in the hot wire going to the ignition switch. With the toggle flipped the ignition will not have any power. AND I hear that a good place to mount that switch is inside the underdash dome light holder. Just remove the bulb, connector and drill a hole in the bottom of it and its nicely recessed once mounted.

But if you can afford it, get trunk monkey.

I cut the wire to the starter and ran them to an old floor dimmer switch on my floor. It looked factory. And when I needed to start the car I stepped on the switch. You can leave it on, or get used to clicking it off when you start the car.

Later I did away with it. Now I have the floor switch ran to my air lockers. When I go off road. I turn the compressor on, and both locker switches. When I want to lock the wheels I step on the floor switch. When they light up I know there on. When I breach the obstical I step on the floor switch again and turn the lockers off.

thanks for all the input guys, i ran a pretty sweet set up going to the starter. only a push button to arm it, and you can't disarm it unless you know where to swipe a magnet, have it hooked into a reed switch. pretty neat project i found online, installed it yesterday, and love it. it's awesome, now i can sleep better at night (the minivan next door just got stolen in the middle of the night. they park it on the street as do i with my wrangler....)
