Jimmy Jammer



Anybody here install a Jimmy Jammer? Are they worth while? Do they really prevent theivery?

I'm getting more and more concerned about someone making off with my stroker. Apparently the drug cartels like to steal F-250 strokers because they can haul a heavy load (of drugs) and because of their off-road ability.

Am thinking of installing a Jimmy Jammer and a fuel pump cut-off switch somewhere under the dash. It may not be perfect but should slow the theives down a bit or stop them all together.

Look forward to hearing your comments.

jimmy jammers are pointless on superduties...its a well knowsn fact that the door handles are an easy break in point and most criminals dont even slim jim the doors...they just go through the door handles....

instead of a fuel pump cutoff....why not just put a switched relay to the main power to the PCM????

the only downside to it is it will reset any check engine light if you turn the power off....since the PCM will lose power...
