I am not sure what you are looking to do would work.
When you work are working on the barrell you have to put the key in the on position to remove it.
Doing that you will not be able to lock the steering wheel.
Cars that have that option already installed will have an electronic lock on the steering wheel which will keep it locked when off the Jeep has a manual lock that comes off the cylinder it's self.
