I want my truck to fail!

Long story short, my brother in law is going to borrow my truck for a week long trip that covers about 1500 miles...and im not cool with it. My wife asked me if it was ok, I said ok...but I didnt mean it was ok. What I should have said was..."are you f#(king nuts!?!?" But I didnt. My bro in law has a grand cherokee that is more than able to make the trip. Even my father in law thinks the idea is stupid. Im in a corner and I need an out.

I need to make it so my truck wont start, but nothing obvious, cuz my bro in law is pretty good fixing things. I AM NOT OPPOSED TO MAKING A BIG MESS IN MY DRIVEWAY! Just need something to make the truck fail, then I can "fix" after they leave.

What can I do?

At first I was gonna laugh and say your crazy... But, then I thought about it and I understand in-laws and relationships, and not wanting to argue with your wife about relatives so I give... Let me think,

Is there something you can do to temporarly lose High Pressure Oil???
What about a common sensor that is a special order item and you only "find" the problem a day before the trip?

Under Valve Cover Harness.. will not run with a "bad" one since the SD has one plug for each side of the motor..

It would be easy if you had a "no start" setting on your chip. That would make it really easy. If I had the 35mph valet setting on the chip I'd set it there, so he wouldn't want to take it lol.
