Fuel pump shutoff is great on a gas engine, but you run the risk of damaging your injectors since they need fuel to lubricate... expecially if the thief kept trying to start the truck.
I've tossed the idea around of having the PCM hooked up to a switch, but that's a sensitive piece. Maybe IDM but really a hidden switch for the Clutch pedal sensor is a great idea. For the auto guy's, your truck has the wiring for this and it is live, there is a dummy plug from factory.
Another idea would be the neutral safety switch, cps ( if anybody wants to mess with that circuit), ICP ( again maybe risky), or the start wire from the ignition.
