Stolen Jeeps

I stopped by M.I.T. Drivetrain Specialists, (great bunch of guys there by the way!!) , on the way home from work today to pick up a few items for my Jeep, as I was paying,
I noticed the lady behind the counter was printing out this long list of Itemized parts, I made a comment of............Someone had spent a lot of $$$$$$$$$$ today, and She said she wished that was what it was for, but that was not it,
so she proceeded to tell me that in the last 3 weeks, three Jeeps have been stolen from the area , and the list was for the owner to take to the Insurance company for there claim.
I then went on to tell her, there is this guy I work with has a buddy who just had his Jeep stolen last week, this is all in the........ El Cajon Ca, area,
near San Diego
so anyone in the area.......... be-aware .........There are some shit heads out there looking for fixed up jeeps to rippoff

anyone have a good way of hooking up a kill switch???
let me know

I bet most of those stolen jeeps in SD are over the border in less than an hour.

Mounting a battery kill switch, under your dash, is very simple. You can even mount one of those detachable steering wheels for about $100.00. They work great. Leaving a Rottweiler, or Pit Bull, in the seat, even better............. I know, not practical if your at work, poor doggy.........

I survived not having air bags, or seatbelts...........but I know, everyone has been well programmed to think they will instantly die, without them.............

Problem with the club is people can cut through it in a few seconds but that is if they really want to spend the time to bring along their power tool.

I agree with blu about buying a pitbull and leaving him in the back seat.

I have been searching for an adapter that will fit my jeep for this. Sadly it's not universal.

Add a tesla coil underneath the seat that is activated using motion sensor.
We'll have fried steak for dinner.

If it is at your house on your property hook up an electric fence charger to the jeep body

2x on that one^. In the mourning you find some one in your jeep crying because he cannot get out that would be worth seeing.
