render temporarily unusable

I need help!
My soon to be ex-wife keeps stealing my trucks. I really don't know squat about powerstroke mechanics or any other kind. I am wanting to render my trucks "unusable" to her. Other than unhooking my battery terminals and removing relays (she's onto those tricks) how can i do that and still make it simple for me to get back into it and drive off in a reasonable amount of time? I am trying to be decent and don't want to call the cops on her if at all possible. Any help out there? No shrinks please. thanks.

I think I would render her un usuable.

Change keys, security system, snake on seat.

I like the fuse idea. Or put a hidden master battery switch on it somewhere that she does not know about.

Disconnect the transmission plug....If it cant "see" that it's in park it won't crank over.

pull out the fuse for the fuel pump. That will get her, she'll think somethings wrong with the truck when it spins over but won't fire up
