Never been an alarm guy. But want to do something to secure the interior while top and doors are off.
Anyone have opinions or suggestions? I glance and found a couple of alarms with interior sensors for convertables. Anyone have experience with these?

I was an installer for 5 years for car alarms and mobile electronics. In a jeep it is almost not worth it if they want it as with any car they will get in. However with the top off and doors off your presenting a whole new challenge. The only thing my experience can think of would be a the motion sensors I installed in my car. They were a PITA and if I had to do it for someone else they would have been charged up the a$$. just my .02

Yeah, pick the Directed electronics brand of your choice (Clifford, Python, Viper, etc.) and find a 2-way security. Also, have a proximity sensor installed (part # 508d iirc). That will do the monitoring of the air and creates 2 "bubbles" of security. One outer bubble will be a warn away, and once you enter the inner (both are adjustable) bubble, the system sets off fully.

All their accessories are on:

Hope I linked the right page, but it should be. I have the prox sensor, window modules, so I can close windows just by locking the doors (if you've got power windows) or roll them down via an aux function. There's tons of options and uses for most of these sensors/add on's.

When I walk away from my jeep, I generally just point at it with the key, and yell BEEP BOOP. Most folks that see me do this realize that I'm just crazy enough that they don't want a piece of me.

If you don't keep anything valueable in your Jeep, a regular alarm should be sufficient. If anyone opens the door or tries to start it, the alarm will go off. You can get one with a pager or even go Lojack if you want more security. If you want to store valuables in your Jeep, you can get one of the secure storage systems that go behind the back seat.
