Don't steal my truck please!

I just use factory alarm and a kill switch that is hidden really well. I just use the factory because of the discount on insurance otherwise I wouldn't have on there just a kill switch. I have had bad experience with complex fancy pants alarms and they become more of a headache than they are worth. 99% of the time no one looks at a truck with the alarm going off anyway and if the guy really wants your truck then he will take it no matter what.

I guess that's understandable. Here in the computer security world same concept, you can do anything you want to protect data, if the attacker wants to get it bad enough, he will.

That is exactly right, computer security is ment for 99% of the world. The 1 percenters you generally can't stop.

Anyway if I go somewhere where I am REALLY worried I just bring my doberman pincher and let her stay in the truck if its not too hot.

I use three systems: 1) Truck club 2) Viper Alarm with all the bells and whistles and 3) Lo Jack with early warning system

Like was already said, this will only keep folks moving on to easier pickin's. If they truly want my truck, they're going to get it.

The Viper alarm has the GPS and early warning system, but I opted for Lo Jack instead because the cops have that in their vehicles. It was $1,500 installed.

Well this one hits home with me. Yesterday my truck was broken in to while I was in the store no longer than 5 minutes. I have the Lojak early warning and factory alarm. Lojak only does you any good if the truck is stolen or moved. I ASSUMED the factory alarm would be sufficent. Not so. The way they got into my truck was they popped the passenger side lock. I can only figure that the alarm thought it was a key so it didn't go off. The ability to pop the lock so easily is a very weak link in these trucks. If any techs have insight on this I would like to hear.

Anyone have any ideas on upgrades to the factory door hardware?

My next step, an alarm with bells and whistles that doesn't interact with the key in the door and very dark tinted windows. The dark windows don't have allot to do with security but could help, I just want them

I just bought my truck then immediately I added a Viper Alarm System. It has the turbo timer, remote start and paging system that supposedly works up to a mile away. This usually cost about $475.00 installed. I would say well worth it though. It is nice to be in the mall and have your truck start so that you will have the a/c going before you get in the truck (I live in FLORIDA).
