Simple bypass switch to ignition or starter solenoid works well.
The trick is hiding the switch where bad guys won't look.
Under/in the dash, in the glove box, or controlled by something like turn signal lever or such are so common those are the first places they look at.
And place the switch where it looks like you are doing something natural when you activate or deactivate it. If someone is watching, last thing you want is to give em a heads up as to where to look for the switch.
I'll give you a tip. Think about what you do when you get in your jeep to start it.
Then start looking for places/ways to do a switch.
Or make it so obvious, they will tend to ignore it. Like a winch power switch. It can be rigged to not only power the winch circuit, but also the the connection for the starter solenoid. Flip the power on, start the jeep, flip the switch off.
3 way switch marked for lamps. But only marked on/off. Even if they are dumb enough to hit the switch and fire up a bunch of off road lamps, which they won't as it attracts attention, they most likely won't notice the switch will flip backwards, to a third position and let you start the jeep.
