Dash Security for 2012 models

Does anyone have any ideas or product knowledge to lock the stereo into the dash for the 2012 models? Tuffy stopped at 2010 and has no plans to make anything additional. Just wondering if there is any way to avoid that lovely hole in the dash after going somewhere with no doors or top.

Factory stereos are matched to the vehicle, so they're pretty much worthless if stolen. Thieves know this and seldom bother.

+1. Its factory and I highly doubt they will want it anyways. Nevertheless, I added a motion sensor setup in my jeep so as to hopefully prevent any tampering. If you want to know how I did it, check it here:

I was hoping not to have to do any motion sensors, as I don't need to be the guy who has the wailing jeep at the trailhead when I'm nowhere to be found, because a surreal ran across the trunk. But its sounding like thats the only way to go.
