Best Theft Deterrent Device

I am pretty sure that my jeep can be started with a screwdriver, therefore I'm looking for a theft deterrent device such as The Club or something similar that doesn't require working off my battery. Any suggestions?

I am personally going to be doing the fuel pump ground shut off. Most likely with the switch in my lockable center counsel

I did the fuel pump cut off switch. Very easy and effective to keep them from driving it away. Of course they can still tow it away, but nothing is 100%.
I like the fuel pump cut off because it will still try and turnover causing the thief to figure out what's wrong, and taking more time which they hate.

Simply leave an empty holster on the dash. The logic there is the owner has the pistol in his pocket. Nothing will stop a determined thief, but it may cause them to go elsewhere. Good Luck, L.M.

I keep an empty holster in the console and a few spent casings in the cup holder and on the floor I also have NRA lifetime member decals.

With a carb, it can still run, until the bowl runs out. Then it's likely the BG isn't gonna stick around to try to fix it.

I haven't seen anyone list the old favorite - remove the wire from the coil to the distributor. Without it Le YJ isn't going anywhere.

To be honest my best theft deterrent is to just live in a place that doesn't have car thefts!

I use a 20+ year old Ultra Club for the steering wheel, so far so good. On my VW Bug I pull the rotor from the distributor, and another club!

If you have a manual, go and buy a shotlock and put it around the brake and clutch pedals. Can't shift if you're pressing the brake too. My other favorite is a sticker that says "Your alarm goes beep, mine goes bang."

Something like 90% of auto thefts in my area are due to keys left in the vehicle...I don't do that, so far it has prevented any auto thefts. Other 10%? I have insurance for those.

Coil wire is a great trick...I may have done that to a buddys CJ back in highschool...

Yeah, not too many thieves carry a coil wire in their pocket, and easier than popping the top of the distributor to take the rotor.

Of course neither of those tricks will work on either of my Jeeps. While I was away from Jeeps, I was not keeping up with the changes, so the day after I came home with my TJ I went out to check the fluids and looked and my first thought was "Where are the spark plugs", thinking I would follow the wires from the distributor to the plugs, my next thought was "Where the hell is the distributor". Then it dawned on me.

Shoot, today's thieves wouldn't know what a coil wire was.

I agree with this method.
