Doesn't somone make a relay that will kill any circuit it is plugged into with a key FOB? I saw this in a JP article a few months ago.

Basically it's just a relay and you plug it into say your fuel relay and when it is deactivated with the Key fob it kills that circuit. Would take a thief a little while to figure out.

one of my upcoming projects is going to be the detachable steering wheel, similar to what racecars have, that way you just pop the steering wheel off and take it inside with you.

$280 installed. Mine used to false a lot but found it is a temperature problem. I readjust it in spring and late fall and it's been good since.

you can tap into the asd relay in the fuse box under the hood. just cut the ground wire going to that and run a toggle switch some where inside

Why hasnt anyone suggested just removing the starter fuse. I doubt criminals carry around extra fuses with them. It seems as if it will take just as much time to open the hood and flip a disconnect switch as it would just to remove the #6 or #22 fuse. :-)

BatterSy Brain

That and a hood lock. I bought one at camping world. It hooks to your battery and has a key fob that you use to activate it. It actually has three functions. If your battery gets down to 11 volts it shuts off the whole system that way when you get there hopefully there will be enough juice to start your engine. So I live in Southern Kaulifornia land of the expensive DMV and many crooks.
So I park my jeep push the disable button and put a steering wheel lock on. The last guy that tried to steal it cut the steering wheel to get the club off. Then he pulled the ignition, stuck in the old screwdriver and turned. The battery brain when it is set lets the engine start to turn over but to me it sounds just like a dead battery. Must have to this guy also. He hopped out and when he got to the hood and found the hood lock, well he gave up then probably figuring I had a dead battery. In the morning I set the battery brain and used his screwdriver to start my jeep. What a PITA to fix a yj ignition lock. I try to keep it in the garage now but I thank the battery brain for my jeep

Sure you could bolt cut off the locks, but not many thieves in LA, atleast where I park around westwood, carry bolt cutters casually.
I'm liking this... I'm thinking, though, that one could run a cable from the lock cylinder to a new post in the vicinity of the distributor. When you secure the Jeep, remove the coil wire from the distributor and put it on the new post. When they turn the key, they zap the **** out of themselves.

A magnetic reed switch, mounted under the dash and in series with either the Neutral/Clutch switch or the starter switch. To start the Jeep, you'll have to wave a magnet over that spot. Keep a few magnets on the windshield frame.

Battery disc. under the hood, and a hood lock should do it. And as far a as valuables left behind, there are "safes" that use the tailgate as the door. Alarms only work when someone who cares is listening. An acquaintance of mine had an alarm system with a paging system, he spent half his day running after false alarms.

I'm a night person, as I work at night, but when I am at home, I keep a close eye on my vehicles, when I am up most of the night. If they can beat a 9mm. hand gun, or a shotgun, then the stuff that they just stole from me is theirs to keep. Just don't let me catch them, or I'll get em back in a bad way.
