I wired in a cut off switch to the fuel pump relay and put the switch in plain sight, that's always the best place to hide something. I've bet people to get in the Jeep and find the kill switch, I even tell them "you're looking at it" and nobody has found it yet. I would like to tell you where I put it but that sort of defeats the purpose.

i have the "hidden switch" in my jeep, however mine isn't a toggle switch. it's a magnetic relay switch installed behind the dash. swipe a magnet (on my key chain) over the dash and the switch is on and the vehicle can start. swipe it when you turn off the jeep and the ignition doesn't get power.

yeah you could put the rfid chip in your head or hand for convenience, then if something "bad" happens the government can use it to track you and "correct" the situation.

This is what I use. It's stronger and more secure than the club. I 've seen the club cut with a good quality bolt cutter. This comes with an "AMERICAN" brand pad lock. It cost me $69.00. Very well made. The steel is pretty thick, you ain't prying this open. I use it 24/7 in the spring/summer and early fall when I'm topless and doorless.

Lok-Itt Security Products

Here's a closer picture of it.

And yes I understand that if they want it they'll get it, but why make it easy for them to take it.
The pro will take it no matter what. The joy rider won't risk it it.

Is it a pain to take on and off when you drive?

Not at all. Less than 30 seconds to slip on and lock and viceversa to take off.
I just toss on the passenger floor or back seat when I'm driving.

The only pain is to reach over to get it when I'm going to slip it on.

When I use to park in my garage (can't now the Jeep is too tall) I would put it on. Find a distributor near you, take a look at it you won't be disappointed.

I like this one better than the CarGard becuase it also locks your steering wheel. If they happen to get it started they can't get a full turn out of the steering wheel as opposed the the CarGard brand.

I've had both got rid of the CarGard for the Lok-Itt. The Lok-Itt is made of thicker steel.

Sometimes I wish someone would steal my Jeep, would take part of my misery away. I do however have the comprehensive insurance on her, just in case something would happen to her.

You better check with your insurance company, you may be supprised to find that you are paying a lot for nothing, value on an 89 YJ is probably about zero as far as the insurance company is conserned, you may be better off putting that comp payment in the bank.

When my parents had to park in questionable areas is corpus christi, he'd take the distributer wire off and make my mom carry it in her purse. He loved it since it was a short wire. His previous had a real long wire so he didn't mess with it. My jeep came with an aftermarket alarm i never use. There is a little red momentary switch in the glove box. Is that a reset maybe. Thought maybe a kill switch but aren't those toggles or rockers?

How do we find out what the value of our vehicle is in consideration to the insurance?

That's probably your valet button.
