"New" Used Jeep in NYC -- Safety Measures?

First off, welcome all. I hope to learn a lot here eventually.

I am lucky enough to inherit my father's 2000 Sahara with only 45k miles (he just ordered a new 4-door and is tired of three pedals). Trouble is, I live in Brooklyn, NY. My existing car, an 88 Accord has been broken into twice since I've lived here. I am worried about having such a nice vehicle in the city but cannot pass up the opportunity of such a pristine, cared-for TJ. Also, there is the chance that I've been so unlucky because my car is so easy to break into and has no alarm.

I am having a hard top installed while I am still living in NYC (trying to move out). Also, once it gets here, I will be installing wheel locks, a hood lock, a fuel cap lock, and a "Club"-style lock. Also, the Jeep has an aftermarket head unit which I will religiously store in the center console.

What other safety precautions should I take? Any city-dwellers on here who may have learned a lesson or two that I don't need to learn the hard way?

Get a pet rattlesnake and throw it in a plexiglass box with a top that falls off when you move it!

Check out the lock boxes that bolt under your seat on quadratec. Oh yeah, you could always move out to the island. It's a little more civilized. Good luck.

Give Suburban Auto Group a call. While the Jeep doesn't really have a trunk, they might have a Trunk Monkey version that is compatible with a TJ.....

Ccain has this thread and link on kill switches. Though the trunk monkey system looks more gratifying.
