A pair of good 'tin-snips' will cut any steering wheel. BTDT....

That won't work real well in 'park' on a hill.
A kill switch the 'cuts' the coils gnd, is the best.
Saved mine twice in 28+ years. Held the AH's for the 'po-po' too.

People with automatics don't use their parking brake to keep them still

With the history of CJ p'brakes 'self' releasing. NO ONE should ever trust the p'brake alone. I always put mine in gear w/p'brake on.

I agree about parking brakes self releasing. Mine did it on a boat ramp. Luckly I was only 2 ft from the open door and was able to jump back in and hit the brakes.

That would have ruined my day

Theft is something I have been worrying about. Has anyone used a quick release steering wheel disconnect? I would think a thief would pass up a vehicle without a steering wheel.

Jeepwhore mentioned in the beginning of the post that he has one. I was looking today online, 4wd.com has some steering wheel quick release hub's but I haven't had the time to check them out yet to much yet. If you do let us know. I'm thinking of getting one.

I don't want to hijack this thread, but can anyone recommend a good kill switch that doesn't take and EE degree to install? I've thought about getting one, since the lock around the brake and clutch pedals may not be enough.

I don't smoke anymore, so I figured the ol' ground through the cigarette lighter was my best option. Just pull the lighter out far enough to break contact, It will drive anybody crazy!! Let them try and try to start it, then once they are furious, simply push ciggy lighter in, make connection for the ground and presto!!

Probably too stupid to know how to use it, anyway.
