Question Viper vs Clifford

I've been him-hawing around with the idea upgrading the security on my TJ for quite a while now. Think I've narrowed it down to 2 different systems.

1.) Viper 5901

Viper - Viper 5901 Responder LC3 SuperCode SST 2-Way Security and Remote Start System

2.) Clifford Matrix 50.7x

Clifford - Matrix 50.7X

From what I've read these 2 systems seem to be exactly the same, and both made by DEI, along with Python systems.
Can anyone confirm this?
If there ARE some differences, please point them out.

The only difference I see is the small aesthetic differences in the remotes, and it seems like the Viper Systems are being pushed by dealers more than the Clifford's. Both are neck in neck with price.
Any ideas?

I can pick either system up for right around $200.
But the cheapest install I can find would be $150.
Is that reasonable for this kind of job?

That sounds about right to me. Your getting a good deal on the alram. I put just a remote start and lock/unlock in and it costed about $100 in my truck.

Well...I went ahead and purchased everything last night.
I bought the Viper 5901 System with Remote Start and 2 way transponders with a 1 mile range.
I bought 2 DEI Actuator kits to convert the manual locks into keyless entry,
A Trunk Solenoid Popper for the tail gate,
A Proximity Sensor to try and keep jerk-offs from getting to close to it,
and a illuminated armed badge for the window that flashes when it's armed.
All for under $300
Not too bad...eh?







I'm also gonna have the installer wire up the red LEDs in my skull to constantly blink when the system is armed.
I think he'll probably charge the hell out of me for all of this...but it needs to be done right, and I don't have the knowledge for it all.
