Just to be sure, I took it to the dealer and had them do it.

Brilliant!!! I've got an old Python 881XP I pulled from my F350 taking up space in a box, love the idea of a separate install like you did. I really did hate the big bulky remote it came with. Thankfully 90% of the time my Jeep is safe, garaged at home and outside my window at the office.

Someone say hulk!?!?! HULK SMASH!

***NOT OFFERING LEGAL ADVICE, just a point of view***
You can check to see if that stuff is covered under your insurance policy, the criminals that are hardcore probably wont waste the chances of getting caught for taking stock stuff. I saw on here, that a dealership had some rims taken, that person probably did that because it was high gain. Think like a criminal...low risk, high gain. Any time you break the law, you have a chance large or small to get caught. Even alarms that go off really don't make people's head turn anymore but some alarms can page you. This is what I will eventually get, a 2 way page type alarm.

Unfortunately, if someone really wants your stuff, they will find a way to take it. But the secret is how bad they really want it? I park in either the garage or next to police cars, usually helps!

You have to be a serious Jeep fanantic if contemplating the use of an AR to take down a thief while stealing your spare tire or duffle bag.

What happen to a good old fashion chase down and burying the asshole in the desert?

Jeez... way too many video games being sold these days.

Not to mention, it is unlawful to use deadly force to protect property in many states..make that most states.

This ^ and I never took off the faceplate of my HU for years... it seems that HU's are so cheap now that they are not in demand.

Would you be angrier if a thief cut up your $700 soft top or stole your $150 HU?

I have a locked garage and I don't park/drive in the ghetto.

I put one of those quadratec ivaults in. It looks like it could still be forcibly removed if they really wanted it but it will take some extra time. But the big thing for me is that it completely hides the HU from view. I'm hoping if they can't see what it is they won't bother trying to take it.

As for wheel locks, i might put some on, they make little mini ones for the door hinges too. As was already stated, they can still be worked around, but hopefully it slows em down enough. again hoping, any would be theif won't want to hang around long enough to get them off.

I do like the second HU stashed in a remote location idea though. I used that in my old fairlane. Left the factory cassette player in the dash, hid the cd player. yes i said cd, this was back in the 90's Use that in combination with one of those security consoles and it would be a lot harder for them to get to the real one if they could find out where it is

I also park in my locked garage and never drive/park in a ghetto. Nor do I live near/around/close to a large city/ghetto.

My list of scumbag protection measures:
  1. Factory alarm.
  2. Newly installed home-made alarm using a proximity sensor, trigger for siren under the hood. Used for topless/doorless days. Works with or without setting the factory alarm.
  3. MOPAR Hood lock.
  4. Tuffy Security gate in the rear. Amp and sub/box hidden under that.
  5. Removable HU faceplate.
  6. All wheel locking lugnuts.
  7. Locking gas cap.
  8. Jeep is stored in my locked garage.
  9. Never leave the Jeep in questionable areas (over night).
  10. Never leave anything of value in sight.
Sure all of that will slow down passers-by and probably even somewhat motivated thieves. It won't stop pros. But at least now I can go to the beach topless and have my stuff out of sight, somewhat locked down and alarmed.

I've never experienced car theft or anything stolen from mine. The last local rash of thefts that I heard of:

Windows were broken and items in sight were taken. Smash and grab. I guess some idiots leave laptops, money and such in plain sight. A good way to make sure you are not a target is by not having any valuables in sight. I'm not worried about a car stereo being stolen as they are quite inexpensive now.

Idiots? I shouldnt have to worry about people stealing my crap.

Heres a fun one. I dont use store bought cds. If i buy legit copies i keep the originals home and use copies.

One time someone stole my cd book. Apparently they didnt look inside first because it was all copies. No resale value. Hahahaha.

Funny thing though, they took nothing else. Had a really nice expensive stereo system too.

Not that RI is bad, I just hate people. People who steal that is.

Nope. If the doors are actually on the Jeep, and they can get them off, they can have them. Then at least I won't have to also replace the hinges.

Tuffy rear cargo thing, tuffy glovebox, stereo with removable face, after market alarm with shock sensor and 2-zone proximity.

The 2 zone is great. Gives a warning chirp at the outer zone, and alarms if you move to the inner zone.

Not so here in TN. Law passed a year or so ago. You can protect your vehicle as you can your dewlling/property.
A local senate member shot-killed one, injured the other, when they both tried to carjack him. Jumped into his back seat and they never left it.
