Unhappy Another Kill Switch Question

Ok, I'm new as of last week and I am sure this has been asked a million times but I have looked and can not find info on installing a kill switch on a 2006 TJ. I know how to install one but I don't know how to find the correct wire to cut. I would like to keep the cut inside the cab if possible.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Dear Algebra, Please stop asking us to find your X. She's never coming back and don't ask Y.

you can tap in anywhere and just splice into a wire required for it to start. For example, the small wire that goes to the little screw post on the starter. Not the big battery cable but the little one. That one sends the juice to the starter to let it know "go ahead and turn over". If you cut it, run a wire off each end to your switch. Basically, with this installed the starter would never turn over when the key is turned unless this switch was on.

You can also tap into a safety switch such as the one that requires the clutch to be pushed in to start. Tap into one side of it, split the wire and run them to your switch.

This can be deffeated by pulling a fuse on my 98. I can start the jeep with out the clutch.
