I have the 5902 but haven't installed it yet. Waiting for my 2012 to arrive. YouTube the 5902. It's pretty badazz.

That's the same way I load my 12ga in Kansas! I load my JUDGE by alternating between 000buck and the new home defense disc and BB mix that is very effective at close range. My wife loads her 32 berata with lazier sight and her S&W 38 special +P with that nasty home defense split metal jacket hollow points. Same for all my wheel guns. Daughter in Texas keeps a 357 S&W with lazier and the internal hammer. Daughter in Kansas just got a 40 sig auto I think. You can have your change but I'll keep my guns and my money.

themoneypit First of all, what a bunch of scum bags. They need to get a job and buy their own stuff. Mines in the garage when i'm home. if they get through the garage door, then theres the two german shepherds, now that would be fun to watch.

I just got a Viper w/ proximity sensor as well. Where did you hide the proximity sensor? I am having a really hard time tweaking it to the right settings. Half the time the outer perimeter goes off if you look at it wrong, and the other times you can practically jump on the thing without it going off. I have only had it for a few days but I think I am regretting it.

Any advice would be appreciated!

shell I have a Viper system with proximity sensor for the cab area. It's a 2-way system that sends a signal to my remote letting me know what's going on with my Jeep. When I first got it, it was super sensitive (not the outer perimeter, it was the inner sensor) Been tweaking the inner sensitivity and it's just about right now. Working fine now with the top down 24/7. Alarm has gone off once while I was in the grocery store. I knew immediately even though I couldn't hear it going off. The remote went crazy & I took off for my Jeep. Got there and it was a Hummer driver setting off the shock sensor with his big butt everytime he bent over to get his groceries out of the cart. We had a little talk about disturbing other people's property. And before you ask if I was crazy, I was armed and ready to defend myself and my property. So, is an alarm overkill--maybe, maybe not--just one more line of defense. My alarm system isn't for everyone. Does it have it's issues--yes. Is it annoying--at times, yes. If you don't think you need it, that's ok in my book. If you do get a system like the one I have, be prepared to spend some time tweaking it to get it the way you want. Anyone that wants to know more, feel free to PM me.

One more thing, I'm also an advocate for not leaving anything of value in site or in the Jeep for that matter. I do take the stuff I'd like to hang on to with me every time I leave the Jeep.

Vici I think Viper makes one that has a remote that notifies you if you want to spend the dough. Might be something to look into if your dead-set on an alarm. It also chirps when someone sticks their hand in the Jeep. I think Shell has a similar set-up with a Viper.

trennmaschine I would have to agree that an alarm in a soft-top Jeep is an after-the-fact device.
The best advise is already here - don't leave anything in it you want to keep.
Glock is a great deterrent, as is 12 ga.
I always thought that wiring the door handles to the battery would make a great car theft deterrent, but without metal handles it's useless. I also found out that it isn't legal since if someone attempted to steal the vehicle the amperage would likely kill them on the spot - not that there's anything wrong with that - I'm just sayin

tysalem I leave the doors unlocked so they don't have to cut the windows. Like Daggo said, I try to never leave anything that looks appealing in sight. Everything stays locked in the center console and glove compartment.

I have never thought of a security alarm because I know when I hear one, I just get annoyed and wish they would shut the stupid thing off. I'm guessing many other people feel the same.

TheHighLow that sucks, that's why all of my tools are in the Tuffy locking cubby-it's pretty heavy duty

Had a break in, now looking for security system

Last week some low life cut a hole in the rear window of my soft top on my JK. Took about 250 bucks worth of tools and I'll have to replace my window. Anyways, can someone lead more towards a good proximity alarm system? What alarm system do you have and what one is working the best for JK's? I want one of those systems were you put your hand inside and it starts beeping and churping loud. Any help would be appreciated!
