Kill Switch

Well it finally happened they stole my truck April 21st, they recovered my damaged truck May 11th and yesterday May 17th they apprehended the suspects. How do I install a kill switch? Should I kill power to ignition? Fuel Pump? Coil?

I remember a huge thread about anti theft measures from last year I believe. I'll see if I can find it.

Edit: Well, unfortunately it does not appear I posted in it, as I can't find it in my post history. And I don't remember the title of the thread to search for it.
Edit 2: Turns out I did post in it, just had to go back further in my history. Here it is. DIY anti-theft?

I have never heard of someone chaining up their truck. Hopefully it's a big tree or you just might find your tree stolen along with the truck.

For safety, I have the wire from the ignition switch to the starter severed in several places and can only start it with the remote start. Another option I would look into is a no start with the chip or disconnecting the IPR.
