Better yet, when a passenger asks why you just changed lanes and you answer "it was the wind"

Just what does this box look like and exactly where does it go? My 93 vic doesn't beep (nor the alarm), but I can't lock w the power locks. Unlocks fine tho. Mau have to add that to the list to see if I want it or not. Lol

I've had people pull up next to me at a red light and ask if I'm drunk, most people don't understand that it can be "just the Jeep"

I guess to add, when you man-handle the wheel with one hand while on a two lane road and you're friends have a firm grip on the "oh s**t bar".

I can confirm that I could not lock the doors without it in and as soon as I put it back in it works like a charm
