i figured he would have bought warn bumpers.

Afterall, he's all about warn.

I made a truly hidden ignition disable switch. even i cant see it but I know its there

I dont even know what these things are normally used for but they have them there in a little cabinet so I got one right beside that they also had some good magnets. the reed switch about $1.49 do not straighten the wires that come out of the end during the next step leave them bent like they come. take two pieces of wire about three feet long and solder them to the switch then cut the single wire to your clutch safety switch and wire this inline with it. if you have an automatic you can run it through the ignition but not sure how since I have a standard. tuck it in somewhere behind one of the plastic panels on your dash beside your steering wheel column preferably on the left side for ease of access. now you have a truly hidden disable switch as it cant be seen at all. I keep the magnet I bought on top of my roll bar after all its a magnet and sticks to the roll bar quite nicely. whenever I start my jeep I take the magnet hold it up to the panel and turn the key. it starts every time. if I try to turn it on with out the magnet held to the right spot on the panel, it does nothing just like trying to start it with out the clutch in. I have yet to have any problem with it and have been running that way for 8 months now. So unless you are a car thief who is smart enough to bring a magnet with you and intuitive enough to hold the magnet to the right spot on my panel and turn the ignition at the same time, or you have enough time to jack up my sterring column and get under my dash and rewire my clutch safety switch wires back together. you are not getting my jeep :-)

Almost finished with the belly up (phase 1 atleast)





phase one is get the skid mounted for this weekend. The tranny mount itself will be up to keep it away from the rocks, but the 4 bolts holding it to the frame will not be flushmounted yet.

Phase 2 is flush mount the bolts and put UHMW on the bottom to slide over things better.

That is a great idea. I had done something similar with a simple switch on my old samurai, but I really like the magnet idea. I would just make sure to have a few spare magnets, maybe tucked away in case someone thinks it is cool just to jack the one from your roll bar thinking they are being cute or "hey, look, a magnet" and it walks off.

That think looks great and doesn't look like it sits as high as some I have seen. It also doesn't look like it has the sidewalls that other pics show. Did you modify it in some way. This what I am thinking about getting, but the only thing I wasn't too sure of is how it will make the soft top stick up in the back as now it is nice and neatly tucked away between the rear of the roll bar and the back of jeep.

One thing about that type of advertisement..... Warn would paying me big buck to advertise their product like that! Not happening with me. I'll put it on mine if they want to send me a monthly check for it or donate everything that has their name on it.

Hey maybe that stands for "warn down" or "warn out"?

Nah, Just messing with you about the warn out, not the free advertisement though. That is a little much but you are driving it, not me.

No modifications to the extendatrunk at all. I'm real happy with the design. I don't run a soft top but I expect it would sit up higher in the back in my jeep as well. The top of the extendatrunk is just above or right at the height of the rear tailgate.

Couldn't they just pull the clutch safety switch fuse from the fuse panel? Not knocking the overall design or saying that most thieves would think of that but I would recommend putting the kill switch in a more disabling circuit like the starter circuit w/ a relay or the ignition switch circuit.

The magnet idea is nothing new. It's the ADE system. There's a full word document with schematics that tell you how to wire it up and have it work properly. Costs about $15 in parts.
