i have no alarm or anything but IMO the best thing you can do (if you have the availability, is 1) good insurance 2) keep it in a garage

My last jeep (02 manual) got stolen from my private work parking lot in the middle of the day with private security. They are super easy to get in past the hard doors and hard top, and super easy to hotwire, unless you have a skim key (gray) and then it might take a bit longer, but I could get around that too. My jeep had a kill switch too. My new jeep has a pager alarm, slim jim proof doors, ignition wires are wrapped in multiple layers of duct tape, bailing wire, and zip ties, paper crammed in the screw holes of the plastic piece below the steering wheel, and a couple other serious anti theft devices that I don't mention.

If they want it bad enough they'd just cut the steering wheel. It's what they do to bypass a club.

My jeep is my first vehicle and it's gunna be my first spring/summer (doors/top off) with it and can't help but get a bit paranoid about people getting into it. And from what I've read seems like if someone wants it they're gunna get into/take it one way or another. Was just thinking along with bmpage but since my e-brake doesn't work for crap maybe leaving it parked in 4lo making for a real slow getaway since most people don't know how to drive a sick let alone change it back to 2wd

I had lojack on my motorcycle with was stolen off my driveway sometime between 2 and 6 am...my roommate was a cop. Never got recovered. To protect my jeep I have full coverage which includes theft of any items in the jeep, the jeep itself, and covers custom parts, with a $0 deductible. I lost $16gs on the bike, not gonna risk it the second time around.
