debruins it has lowjack on it, so im nto worried about taking it, but for some reason, its broken and either is on valet mode, or it locks up and wont start
we're having the lo jack ppl come out and take a look at it in the next few weeks, so i guess im good with just the low jack then

Tj Bunch if it's a real criminal there going to just take the whole car. But if it's some dumbA** kid the alarm usally is enough to deter them and get some kind of attenion. And they will usally move on to an easyier vehicle.

kg4kpg I hear them damn things go off all the time at work and some at home. Idiot owners either set them too sensative or just don't know what their doing. No one even pays attention to them any more as far as I can see. Besides, criminals these days know how to deal with them anyway.

I tried the tree idea once but I we have locust trees and they have three inch razor sharp spikes. It's not nearly as fun as it might sound

I'm installing a motion sensor with a beep and a video camera on the front porch this weekend, I'm also going to install an alarm in the Heep for when I go mall crawling.

Had I known what was happening I'm heavily armed and would have loved to catch the little bastard. We've had a great deal of crime in the neighborhood recently.

benjamin24 Get an alarm! I use my jeep way to much to not put anything valuable in it. Plus when I'm offshore my wife likes to take it when its nice out, and the panic button is a nice feature. Never had to use it yet, and never had anything stolen out of a vehicle. But, the first time I do, I'll say I'm glad I got it instead of I wish I had!

foxinthemudd ya thats what he said to the cop who got there first. I think that his eyes popped out of his head when I pulled on him and pissed his pants a little when I started yelling. lol but damn that was priceless.

I pulled my glock and asked him if he did, the guy dropped the knife and I threw his ass on the ground handcuffed him and waited for the working men and women of the PD.

CD player, speakers, and subs are tough to take. I had a nice sub, amp, and 300 dollar cd player, and with the backseat out, they were very visible. Never had a problem. IMO, save your money. An alarm isnt going to stop them from taking what they want.

Just out of curiosity.... where do you park your Jeep when you leave valuable items under the seat? Location, description and license plate number should be good enough.......Not that I'm planning on stopping by or anything.....

If I could get away with claymores I would.
True. Ain't much crime anywhere around here. Cept when our house was robbed, but that was an inside job. Anyway. Like I said, I really don't leave anything worth anything in the jeep, and I always park where it is well lit and as close to wherever I am going as possible.

naterg IMO, alarms are a wast of money. Never have had anything taken from my Jeep, and I leave the top down all the time. Even tho I usually don't have anything worth taking, I have left my computer in it over night with the top down and nothing has happened.
09-09-2007 07:02 PM
debruins yeah the jeep has a sub two extra speakers, tow amps, a flip down headunit, and i may keep my lacrosse stuff in it during school in the spring idk yet

how these two things look?

btw it has a lowjack on it, but the alarm part doesnt work, and its not a motion sensing alarm anyway

hardy1531 I had a Viper Alarm, with a prox sensor. The Proximity sensor detects movement and it is adjustable. They problem i had was it going off when ever it stormed. If I had the top down and the leaves or tree limbs would sway it would go off. I bought it from Circuit City a cpl of years ago. I used to work there so i got the discount. But I wanna say it was around $300. The alarm itself was top of the line. You can add the Prox sensor to most alarms. Hope this helps
