I'm going to have to agree with you on this. If the vehicle is stolen by a pro, they are prob going to have a way to by-pass the keyfob and the lo-jack system. You'll never see it again.

If you vehicle is stolen by amateurs, they are going to trash your vehicle. No doubt that the ignition system and or locking systems will be damaged. The police will prob find it a few weeks wrecked or stripped. This is the point where I would not want it back.

Personal belongings? Who keeps them in a Jeep anyway? lol

gnjlee About a year ago I successfully moved from the Detroit area for good (No offense to Motor City Fanatics).... horrible weather and high crime (Drove rear wheel drive BMWs there, even in the snow). The cost of gap coverage was well worth the peace of mind.

I always purchase GAP insurance. So no surprises here.

Great points!

1.) I have personally never heard of anyone getting a vehicle back with no damage.... If time is a factor which it usually is...they won't bother trying to put the vehicle in N. They just drag the thing on it's tires.

2.) I can't speak for others, but I always purchase gap insurance if I am carrying a payment without significant money down. Have seen too many people burned by insurance totaling out the vehicle and not covering the entire loan.

RH_Trek I had Lojack in my 2006 BMW 330XI. I think it's a good idea to purchase, especially if it's easy access to get inside your jeep and if you live in a shady neighborhood or visit one frequently.

Aftahour i have it installed in my jku and dont have to worry. i got a call from lo jack few days ago, but found out it was a dead battery in the fob. only thing to worry is ppl stealing your battery out the jeep.

Hi Preston,

Thank you for considering LoJack for your Jeep. If you have any questions or want to place an order please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-4-LOJACK (1-800-456-5225)

To those who mentioned they wouldn't care if their vehicle was stolen, and they would take the insurance money. What about the sales taxes and fee's you paid on the vehicle? Personal belongings? Customizations? All lost if your vehicle is stolen and not recovered and not to mention the hassle of it all.

LoJack offers a 90% recovery rate on cars and trucks, we have over 300,000 total recoveries (averaging 10,000+ per year) worldwide, and we are the only stolen vehicle recovery system directly integrated with the police.

As mentioned below (our success stories blog), Southern California one of our top market for recoveries and it is fairly common for us to work with Mexican authorities to recover vehicles that have crossed the border or are about to.

Thank you again for considering LoJack.

If your speaking of the Mopar EVTS mine already had it in the package the dealer installed. I figured it beats nothing at all. I didn't do the up grade, but they say they can find it in all 50 states as well as Mexico and Canada.

Don't be so sure: http://www.autotheftblog.com/2012/01...ego-recovered/

Living in San Diego I ordered it with my Jeep too, with the early warning system.
