Securing your topless YJ?

What do folks do to secure your YJ? Do use a club or similar device? Spent a lot of money on mine and have to park it in some less than savory parts of town...

I mostly use a padlock with a long shank and put it around the gas and brake pedal levers securing them together. I have a club, but I don't use it very often. I don't think it would slow anyone down.

Also, There is a switch on you clutch pedal that has to be closed to get the Jeep started. I have mine on a hidden toggle. I got the idea from someone on here, but I don't remember who now.

I leave my Jeep at a Park N Ride a dozen miles from my work. Don't think I'll be able to hear an alarm... Googled around and found some decent looking brake locks.

i ran a kill switch from my starter to inside of my console $3 toggle switch, $1 in wire.

also - i hate having to press my clutch to turn her on(i'm so damn lazy) - you can bypass this by adding in the kill switch and wiring it a little diiferently

You have to press your clutch to start? Wierd. I have a 94YJ and I don't have to do this.......perhaps it would be a good thing for me so I'd stop starting it while still in 1st gear.....LURCH!

Grant removeable steering wheel and a hidden ignition kill.

They'll have to tow it away...

Thanks everybody. Got a Brake Lock at the local auto parts store for $44. Simple to use, laser cut keys. Nice.
