Nobody should ever park any car with just the brake holding it....it's called the Emergency brake for a reason. Manuals should always be in First or Reverse with the brake on, and automatics obviously should be in park.

Leaving the transfer case in neutral is effectively the same as leaving the transmission in neutral....in that the vehicle will still roll.

I fully agree. I'm always amazed at the amount of people I see that just slip her into neutral and push or pull on the ebrake.

Not a contact I would trust on a bad road etc.

Put a twin stick shifter in for the transfer case. Then leave one axle in 4low and the other in 4high. Make the shifter levers so they can easily be taken off and when someone tries to drive away they'll keep killing the engine. Down side is that they could tear the something up but at least the Jeep stays.

But I love it.... Especially since my steering lock is no longer functional. It's some good piece of mind knowing it can't be driven or even rolled out of the driveway easily. If somebody wants it they'll have to tow it away.

Years ago, back in the '80's I made a rectangular collar clamp out of 1/4" thick stainless steel. It hinged open and closed, and fit snugly around the brake and clutch pedal arms. I had a padlock that I challenged any friend of mine who could pick locks to pick it. No one could.

It also had a stainless post welded to it, coming off of the bottom of the collar that reached down and hit the floor.

This way, the pedals were locked together, and couldn't be pushed down, at all. Stainless takes a while to cut through with a saw, and cannot be cut with a torch.

It only took a few seconds to put it on, or to take it off.

Not a perfect solution, but it'll definitely slow down a thief, who'll hopefully move on.

When I purchased my CJ, the PO had a large padlock where he would lock the clutch and break together. Pretty effective IMO, I guess the quality of the lock would make a difference too.

Thanks don't know how I missed the earlier post. Always wanted one when I was doing the circle track racing. But it was not allowed in the "bomber" class or "enduro" races.
