|Triple88a||cvfd, if you have a big brand name you might be in luck however if its a cheap one from ebay, you might be out of luck. Big brands make upgrades while others dont. Pretty much you will need new remotes for sure and some kind of sender in your alarm so it sends and receives signals. I dont know what to tell you though.|

Looks like my basement. I have several ammo cans at my house.
|07-31-2008 08:30 PM|
how about this, put your stuff in one and leave it.
|07-31-2008 12:55 PM|
Yeah, I know. Resorting back to cave man times( Duh I can not move rock so I smash rock. Wife happy she cook Uh Uh)
Yeah I am thinking about mounting some ammo cans in my jeep. They also don't move around as much on off-camber trails. Ill figure the security thing later.

Mounting a box to the floor is very easy man, drill and wrench away. Use big washers though since they can help hold better instead of deforming the floor when some one tries to pry on it. The problem with a box like that is many will see they cannot open it so they will damage something because they are pissed such as your dash. Thats how people are HERE.

|tj1230||It sucks having a jeep or any trail toy broke into and or stolen. I know first hand. There are ways to keep the thieft() from stealing it, but what about keeping them out of rummaging through your stuff and stealing your tools and off-road equipment and the coke can you left in the center console? (CCain)With the "poor man's tuffy console" (aka ammo cans) Did you just mount them to the floor? My rig is in no way a show rig(nor will it ever be) but I do have a softtop and don't really wanna come out a store to find that people have decided to take what they wanted.|

a small few k volts tesla coil isnt going to ark from the roof to the radio or other electronics.
Plastic seats with the tesla coil inside the back rest would be perfect

i also vote on a 2 way alarm, i have a 2 way alarm and multiple times, i've gone outside to find either a kid running away or someone that hit my side steps with their door. I would have never heard of the alarm go off without the 2 way.
I've also allways wanted to add one of these but i'm afraid of getting nicely fried on accident. This will scare one away

Thanks for your input on this thread. As you are part right, Jeep is very easy to get into, does not mean that you can put some kind of security on it.

|gadawgz71||I feel like this thread is an oxymoron. Its a jeep...it probably has one of the most easily accessible interiors in automobile history. Don't leave anything of value in it PERIOD.|
|07-30-2008 11:52 AM|
|Jma20a||i would get the motion censer with the alarm and get a train horn to replace the alarms speaker. one of the nice horns those guys use on hornblasters.com|
|07-30-2008 11:45 AM|
Get one of those alarms that once you break the plane of the jeep interior your alarm goes off.*(discussed earlier in this thread)* Then attach it to a set of train horns or ship horns. I really don't see a problem with it.
Just a thought!

|tazmann910||Thanks for the story, what kind of alarm do you have installed on your TJ?|
|07-24-2008 01:31 PM|
I had a 91 CJ in 2002. It didn't have an alarm system. A couple of drunk theif's broke into it by slashing the drivers window. They tried to remove the new radio I had just installed. Being drunk they couldn't figure out that all they had to do was to pull straight out on the radio and it would come out. Instead they used a crowbar and bent the dash frame up. They also pulled out the dash wiring harness, broke the glove box off, tore the top off the console door, tore off the emblem on the steering wheel and dented the drivers door. Since I did not have an actual alarm on the jeep I rigged a power line from the door light to the radio so that when you open the door the radio would come on full blast. I was parked in an apartment complex parking lot at a girlfriends house. After a few minutes of the blaring music a nieghbor called the cops and they caught both drunks in my jeep and arrested them. Unfortunatly they had already caused over 3000 in damage. Both drunks recieved 3 years probation and had to pay me for the damages at 50 a month. My CJ was a total loss. I didn't have theft insurance. I was able to splice the wires back together and get it running. I traded it in on a 98 TJ. In my TJ I installed an alarm system that goes off if anyone even reaches into the jeep. It also disconects the starter. I did have to rewire it so that the wires are unreachable. So far in the last 6 years now no one has stolen anything from it. I don't leave anything laying out in the jeep. I put everything in the console and lock it. It does however go off when people get too close to the back when the top is off.
I think that if someone wants what you have they will break into it regaurdless of wheather you have an alarm system or not. The best thing I could think of doing for my jeep is to build a garage and keep it in there. My garage is now complete.

I agree with the Tuffy Console comment. When my TJ was broken into, they cut the damn side window and stole a bunch of stuff from my console.
I used to lock the half doors... Never again. Nothing of value stays in the jeep and I bought the poor mans Tuffy Console
|07-24-2008 11:57 AM|
My best advice is to install a Tuffy console, console liner, glove box, or rear under-seat security drawer. Then keep all your valuables inside one of them and NEVER lock the doors unless you have a hard top and full steel doors. I say not to lock the doors since thieves think nothing of slashing a soft top or vinyl windows to look around inside a Jeep if the doors are locked.
I'll never (!) install an aftermarket alarm into my Jeep as 1) No one pays attention to them when they go off. 2) Thieves know how to disable them. 3) The alarm installers (usually a 19 year old kid) will just screw up your Jeep's wiring 9 times out of 10. 4) Loud exhausts, trash trucks, etc. set the alarms off for way too many false alarms.
