A. There is less to go wrong. And
B. it is more difficult for a thief to "make it work".

|JeepandMud||For those that have the viper system, how does it do going through mud? That's one issue I'm facing when I go for the viper. And from what the sales person has told me, they mount the wires under the hood and could very easily get wet when going through mud or a water puddle.|

|lucky4075||Someone mentioned it a few posts ago, but how well do y'all think a driveway sensor thing would work? Usually I throw the trail cover on at night during the summer with the top/doors off. What if you just threw the sensor thing in the back seat or wherever- shouldn't that work pretty well at detecting someone taking the cover off/reaching in?|

Yeah there are alot of false during my summer months, but when I park in the city, any little deterant from vandalism, I'll live with the bitching public.

It hasn't prevented theft of contents, but I've had the same exact Club in every vehicle I've owned...Cuda, T/A, Ranger, YJ, two pickups and now a TJ... and I've never had one stolen. My wife refused to use the one I bought her until her Jetta got stolen .

|kylekae||I have some sort of aftermarket alarm that works great and it unlocks the driverside door too. If you kick a tire or try to open a door or climb into a seat it goes off. I bought Jeep used so no clue of the make but they are out there|

|m24kelly||There are trail cams that you can probably hide. Some even send you the picture when they are set off.|

|jgorm||I have a 2 way pager alarm on mine. I put the microwave sensor in the headliner above the mirror. I have it so it chirps if you lean up by the windows, but if you put your head in the window it will go off. It even works from pretty far and it works in my office at work where my last jeep was stolen. I have a hidden and protected kill switch with the alarm. I wrapped all the ignition wires in layers of duct tape, bailing wire, more duct tape, zip ties next to each other, then more duct tape. It would take a thief at least 10 minutes to even see any of the ignition wires, anywhere they are accessible with the steering column and dash parts removed. I also have lojack.|

I saw where someone on this forum was planning on getting a wireless motion sensor alert thingie to put in their Jeep at night. Harbor Freight carries it.

|Dextreme||20 years ago I had a Viper alarm with the motion detector module. "Protected by Viper...stand back!" It got pretty annoying because it would go off if you parked under a tree on a windy day.|

|TJWenatchee||My Jeep is parked nice and snug inside my attached garage at night. As for anywhere else I try to leave nothing in it. Take the Radio faceplate and leave the doors unlocked and windows down if not raining or snowing.|

For the motion sensor it was a matter of setting the correct sensitivy as well as where it was place so that it didn't capture movement that occurred outside the vehicle.

|Jeepinjarhead||It's a viper security system but after the install and talking to the sales rep, he told me they can be installed on pretty much any system or brand if they support it. The motion sensor/detector was and add on for $75. Like JAMESLEE said they give false alarms. When my doors are off and someone walks by it chirps at them or goes off completely if it is constant motion, but i can put it on silence and it send me an update to an app on my phone. total price for whole system with install was just over $400.00 plus it dropped my insurance a little.|

|RSC17||I have a Viper 5301 security system. It's a 2-way system so it does let me know on the fob if the alarm goes off. Also have door pin switches everywhere and shock sensor. Most aftermarket alarms come with a blue status light that can be easily seen from the outside of the vehicle. I believe that's one hell of a determent.|

After I bought my new Rubi, I noticed a bunch of bad boys watching me as I swung through the alley to park my Jeep. We have two jeeps, and only one inside parking space. So I rented another garage a couple blocks away. All Brick single car garage so no one else can mess with it. Feel Safer about that. BUT I will look into these "Convertible" car alarms for next summer when I take her top off! I also lock up the ipod and toll ezpass in the center console and lock the doors and the glove box. But it would SUCK if they busted the lid off the center console!
