The Club
 
Anyone have "The Club"? I'd like to have a bit more security and peace of mind this summer with the top down and I see there are several options. Would just like some input or other ideas for security. Thanks in advance.

I haven't seen anyone use this setup in a Jeep but this is another way to add security. The airbag is removed though so something to keep in mind.

-Install a Momo steering wheel hub
-attach a quick release
-mount whatever aftermarket steering wheel you like

You can detach the steering in a second and you can add a lock so no one can attach their own quick release steering wheel.

Entire setup costs $300-600 depending on what brands you go with.

This is how it would be:

"The Club" is useless once the steering wheel is cut open.

If a thief really wants your car, they will get it no matter how much security is there. Layering with different types of security is the best you can do. So yes, just The Club is not a sure shot of preventing theft but it helps. Alarm, kill switch, locks must all be used for optimum security.

The club is the only type of security that I use. Yes it isn't going to stop someone who really wants to take it but on the other hand it's better than nothing.

A little rich for my blood but interesting.

I happen to use one on my jeep as extra securitysince it adds more time to their mission... I use the model that has the 4 hooks to it since the 2 hook model is easy to just cut the wheel in 2 spots and its out this model i mentioned needs 4 cuts on the steering wheel before its out! Like i said not the best but it somewhat helps

I always remove my coil wire when parked in a shady area. I doubt many thieves want to spend the time diagnosing an engine problem.

Turn the steering wheel full turn one way or the other before locking. That makes it harder for a flat bed to load your Jeep.

I use one when top is down and the doors are off. There is also a kill switch. It wonít stop the determined car thief but makes the spur of the moment joy riders look elsewhere. I donít know if is really effective but it gives some piece of mind.

Donít know about the removable steering wheel. You are losing a safety feature, maybe voiding part of your insurance, and do you really want to carry your steering wheel around with you? :)
