Andy Jones Exactly. I have a main siren that is hidden close to my battery and two piezo pain generators that are mounted in the interior of the jeep.

I have those a perimeter sensor. Extra shock sensor and a magnetic reed switch on the tailgate.

All if that took me around 4 hours to install and I hate alarms. I mean I hate installing alarms. The hardest thing about a jeep is finding where to hide items Making the wire look factory is easy as is finding the wires you need

Would give you some protection from someone opening your hood, and it would have a starter kill to help prevent theft of the entire jeep.

You could buy one for under $100. Installation of an alarm in a jeep is extremely easy (to do it right, not just to t-tap it).
Hood pin alarm with some piezo sirens. Like 2 or 3... Deafen anyone to the point of throwing up.

I thought about this... I decided if I was going to do this, I'd install some sort of C clamp that goes through the Battery Tray with two padlocks on the bottom.

I'll do that if the battery gets stolen more than once...
