I guess a rave would work but mostly for fun and antitheft.

Hook the fog machine up to your alarm so when it goes off, your jeep fills with fog. Been done before. That on top of multiple sirens both inside and outside the jeep works well. Add strobes to the inside of the jeep along with the fog and sirens and it's very hard to stay inside it. Just make sure you have a battery backup on your alarm otherwise it's as simple and opening the hood and removing a battery cable.

The whole thing runs off a 12 volt motorcycle battery, I like the strobes and sirens idea, that would really mess them up.

And the check engine light which puts your computer in limp mode (diagnostic mode) and hurts your gas mileage and performance.

IIRC there is at least one that doesnt that is farther south. i know in some states classic/antique cars dont need them, some times it goes by if there were OEM or not
