The final trip we made last year was not too hot all weekend, maybe 90. But, Sunday when we were packing up to leave it jumped to about 110.

Well I made it here to California on the 14th. Lets just say the heat really kicked my butt the first week. I have been so worried about getting my Jeep stolen I dont even want to drive it. I had to get it weighed with the full load so i took it down to Otay Ranch?? Pilot truck stop and had lots of people giving me compliments. Usually im ok with it but I didnt realize how close to the border that was so I tried to get out of there as fast as possible. Since then its been in the garage. Do any of you all have an alarm system or recommend one? I think it will at least give me a little piece of mind knowing I "might" be able to save it if anything does happen.
Thanks

Whenever I drive it and have to leave it somewhere I always pull the distributor cap, turn the lockers on, and put the transfer case in 4low. That way even if they get it started they are going to have to know what they are doing in order to drive it anywhere. I have a bunch of switches, none of them labeled, so turning the lockers off when you don't know where they are or what they are is a challenge.

Jeeps are a target, no question. There have been 4-5 stolen just from our little group here in the last few years.

All you can do is make it hard or time consuming. An alarm is good, a kill switch is better. Professional crooks will drag it on to a flat bed so a motion detector will help as well as having the wheels turned hard one way. I have seen some use a chain or heavy cable lock through at least one of the wheels. Don't have stickers identifying expensive parts. If it gets grabbed it will be in Mexico before you even know it's gone so don't leave valuables inside including tools or anything else.

Welcome to SD Yellow02. You managed to land in SD during the hottest week of the year.

I've gotta go to phoenix this weekend to take care of my aunt's estate who died 2 months ago, but really want to go out the weekend of the 31st. Lets put together a run to CC for the 31st. Who else is interested.

Look up the ralavco kits with one of those on the only way to have your jeep stolen is with a flat bed.
