deciding.. Fabtech front bumper or alarm?

Since fabtech is on sale.. I would get no joy from the alarm besides knowing my jeep is a bit safer.. but If I do get an alarm I would want en engine start and power door locks.. I already have an actuator from the dealer on the driver side.. but no passanger.. Honda wanted 350 for their alarm.. I said no and they took the remote..

I just don't know about alarms and Jeeps. Maybe it's just where I live but to me they just don't make much sense. I'm not convinced that they could be very effective.

Base on that and the two choices you gave I would opt for a bumper.

my advice: go with the bumper. Past experience has told me that if someone wants into your vehicle. They'll get in. plain and simple.

Exactly. Get the bumper. If you have money left, buy a pit-bull to put in the back seat as your alarm
