Calling all TJ's with alarm systems

List your alarm system model, price and features, (photos appreciated).

Pros and cons. Also did you install it yourself?

I installed a Bulldog alarm from Autozone. $ 50.00 It operates off of power change/loss. It is very sensitive. Comes with (1) key remote. Does nothing but sets off alarm if you open door (providing your dome light is operational) and your hood (if you have a hood light that comes on when you raise hood). No ignition disable. (I took care of that myself). So why did I buy this? just to draw attention if/when we travel in the jeep and sleep in Motel. They will have to overcome the hood lock, the club @ steering wheel, and my ignition/fuel pump cut out. Where I live is not an issue. But if traveling or I have to leave it for a while-I activate everything. paranoid?, no I had a nice Ford 3/4 ton truck years ago. If I did not have the ign. cut out-they would have stole it out my driveway in northeast SA Tx. where we used to live

Ok good to know! Thanks. I think I'll be doing a 2 way system with proximity alarm when topless and doorless

Back in 1997, I ordered and installed an alarm through Crutchfield. They provided all the necessary hardware e.g. harness and excellent vehicle specific DIY instructions (was appreciated for removing the Jeep's center console, I would have missed on the two screws and top dash removable panel). I recommend them...

Do you folks prefer the audible, loud alarms, or the quiet ones that just alert *you* via a FOB or something? I think when I do the alarm, I want one that just alerts me...and my bat!

Any 2-way alarm will alert you. To keep it silent at the vehicle, just leave off the siren.

Here it is on Amazon. It is the same as they offer on Quadratec but without the huge markup. Got decent reviews and it just about the easiest thing ever to install. Hope it works!

I had a bat back in the '90's. If I heard my alarm, I would run down to my car, yelling and swinging my bat like a mad man. Still, I had my stereo stolen while I slept in my loft, with my car directly beneath me in a gated car port, in the suburbs. The guy actually cut my alarm under my car at the battery. Off course, my car wouldn't start because it had an ignition kill, but that wasn't the thieves concern. When I went to my car the next morning, I found crack pipe paraphernalia, and a bunch of 22 caliper bullets(no kidding) in my car. Clearly, this guy was taking his time that night, smoking his crack, and ready to gun me down dead. I realized two things. 1) My bat would have been useless, and I would have been dead. 2) I never buy a stereo without a removable face.

For awhile, I had a shotgun auto loader, and an Uzi. But, being a volatile person, I realized that this wasn't wise.

After that, I brought a pull-out stereo. And with precautions, I have never had another stolen stereo. The stolen stereo isn't the bad part. The bad part is fixing the dash.

My goal is to use the proximity sensor, so that way it goes off before you can cut anything

Never keep it silent. It defeats the purpose. The idea is to alert everyone in the vicinity and make them look. I know the neighbors won't like it, if it is a false alarm, but that is the problem that needs to be fixed.

The alarm also scares the person who is tampering with your vehicle. A thief can't think straight with the alarm sounding, and likely he will run away.

Unless, you are prepared to shoot and kill someone over a car stereo, it isn't worth it. Like I said before, a bat is useless, against these desperate crack addicts.

The first thing I did was drive my Jeep to have my car alarm installed the day I brought it. I had actually shopped for car alarms, weeks before I picked it up, and I had an appointment the day I picked it up.

A week after I brought my new Wrangler, some jealous person smashed into my Jeep. My car alarm went off, and everyone in the shopping center looked over and saw the lady smash my car. She drove quickly away, but my bumper was ruined. Luckily, the people in the shopping center took down her license plate, gave me details about her and her vehicle, and I was totally covered for the event. My car insurance tracked her down, and I got a new bumper within a week.

These events tell me the importance of having a loud alarm.

Yes, proximity sensors are good, but they can be sensitive. It is best to adjust them so they don't go off, when someone next to you closes their car door. I actually had seat protectors in one of my vehicles.

I also had lazer proximity detectors in my convertible Mustang years ago.
But, I think its all overkill, unless you have your top down. The best solution is to have a pull out stereo, and a regular car alarm with ignition kill. THis will protect your car from normal thieves looking to steal the car contents.

A Lo-jack is the best solution for protecting your car itself from being stolen. I have had my car towed at times. Car thieves will do this too. They will put your car up on a bed trailer or just pull-tow it. But, with a Lo-Jack, you will get your car back, and likely before the thief has the time to strip it. With the car alarm it will sound while the vehicle is being towed. So, this will alert anyone seeing your car being towed. Maybe, it will be spotted by the police too.

These car thieves are fast. They can tow your car before you can even get out to stop them. A car alarm can notify you that it is stolen immediately, and a Lo-Jack can get it back before any damage is done.

Viper. But, if you are the one who had your last vehicle stolen, I would seriously consider a Viper and a Lo-Jack. And, have your Viper installed with a passive alarm setting. This way it will set automatically, any time you leave the vehicle. This way you won't forget to set it. After a while, you get totally use to it. You can disarm it silently too.

With a Lo-Jack, there is no need to run out of the house, if you hear your car alarm go off. The car alarm will scare normal thieves, and if you go outside and see your car gone, just report it to Lo-Jack immediately. They can find your car in one hour. There is no need to risk your life, or the life of your husband or Boyfriend.

It is best to have your alarm professionally installed. If your friend messes it up, or doesn't install certain options, it may be difficult to get them to constantly work on your alarm. If it is professionally done, then you just take it back to the shop, and they will fix it immediately.

These car alarms are getting more and more sophisticated. I use to install them myself, but once the $200-300 Vipers came out, I didn't want to mess it up. The electronics in vehicles are more sophisticated too, so you risk messing that up too, with an unprofessional installation.

The wisedom is to "Do it right the first time", or, "Get it done right".

I'm not saying that there aren't good home mechanics who can do it.
But, unless you are one yourself, why risk your vehicle over a $50 car alarm installation. Some shops even install it for free. The cost of the alarm is part of the installation at professional shops.

I installed an Audiovox alarm in 2005 which runs a hood pin, shock sensor, and a proximity sensor activated. All of this is set up to a two way remote (which after 8 years is just starting to give me difficulties).

The reason, when properly set up, the proxy sensor sets the alarm off if the doors are off or the top is down only when someone breaches the tub walls. ie: walk by, no problems, reach or lean in and the alarm goes nuts. When the doors are on, the shock sensor and proxy together work the same as the door pin sensors, and the hood pin and proxy together make it difficult for someone to cut the battery cable without setting off the alarm.

Had the rig broken into and some dumb a$$ stole the pouch with the hardtop nuts and bolts and torx wrench in it and then smashed the headlights with it when the idiot realized that the pouch didn't have any money in it. (Prompted an H4 upgrade too).

Only other time it was broken into after the alarm went in was the one night I forgot to turn it on.

The occasional false alarm may annoy the neighbours but it keeps the thieves looking for an easier and quieter target.

As for stealing the whole thing, well that's a problem for my insurance company and the police to deal with. There is no deterrent to professional thieves who know exactly how to defeat alarms and ignition cut-offs in order to use a tow to take the whole thing.

This is just to stop those who see a jeep as a quick opportunity for a stereo and ashtray cash.

I have a 1997 Jeep too. I thought you were the Rubi lady who had her new Jeep KJ stolen. Sorry, for the misunderstanding.

I have a Viper in my Jeep. I think this is pretty much top of the line in car alarms.
Just have it installed as a passive alarm, and most of the options are built into it.
Ignition Kill, Hood and trunk pins, proximity, etc. Just tell them not to put the Valet button in plain sight.

Maybe someone can tell me how mine works.

I have a viper of some sort; installed by the PO. I googled the number on the key fob, and found a manual. Thing is, it "can" be configured to do all sorts of things, but I don't know which were actually set up, or what buttons activate/deactivate the function(s) that were set up. I think its just a kill switch...but really don't know. I've activated it inadvertently; a light on the dash flashes and clicks, and turning the key doesn't do anything, until you push the right button to make it stop. It has 2 buttons: I and II

thinking maybe I oughtta just take the key fob off, and leave it in a drawer, lest I "butt-dial" the thing again, and get myself good and stuck somewhere.

I only gave the guy the info he asked. My siren is connected for this very reason.

I also agree that a $50 alarm usually gets installed for free at local shops. My viper 2-way was $650 installed NOT including the motion sensor. That was an extra $70.

TJs have such simple systems that someone with basic reading and wiring abilities should have no problem installing one in their drive way. Other vehicles have multiple ignitions that require all kinds of extra junk. For example, I wouldn't even attempt to install one in my sisters jetta tdi.

What do you guys suggest for my needs? I'm looking for something that will give warning when someone gets to close, and will sound the siren and alert a key fob when someone actually touches or messes with the jeep.
Ignition kill, door/hood pins, keyless, remote start and all that are not wanted. I just want some peace of mind that if someone messes with the jeep it may deter them, or at least alert me so I can possibly stop them. The simpler and less wiring and cheaper the better. My jeep gets wet on the regular during the warm season.

Two way fob with a mile range which alerts me if my alarm goes off. Remote start nice for winters. And summer. Came with hood sensor so it trips alarm if hood is open. Can control power locks. I installed some after market locks on my tj and love them. Includes shock sensor which took a little fine tuning but works good. Also can add other sensors functions. Cost me about 135.00 for alarm system. And 35.00 for the power locks.
Install everything myself which took a full day in which I sunburned the half of my body hanging out from the jeep. But it was worth it.

The options you mentioned as not wanting, are precisely to solve the problems/concerns that you mentioned. You can set a proximity alarm to be very sensitive. But, this will not help because it would be so sensitive that anyone just walking by your Jeep would make it sound off. If you park on a street to do shopping, it would sound off anytime a car drove by. If a truck drove by it would probably alert fully. Not good. You could ruin your battery that way. I've heard cars going off all night long because the proximity was too sensitive. In the morning, the battery would be dead.

The best proximity setting is impact.

You want to protect it from thieves, not passerbys.

Hence, this is why Ignition Kill, Door/hood pins are necessary. They work when someone actually "messes" with your vehicle.

Sure, if you drive a regular car or truck. Or if you never plan on taking your top off.

Set it right and it won't be a problem. Mine is set to "warn" when someone gets close and peeks in. Unzip the rear windows and it'll do it too. Top off: stick your arm in and it'll go off. No one needs to "impact" the jeep to snatch something you forgot to hide.
