Any suggestions on the type of alarm system to install in a Rubicon?
I would suggest a Hornet with a Perimeter sensor... This will allow you to protect the inside of the JP while the doors and top is off. Make sure that the ignition kill is done also.scooter said:Any suggestions on the type of alarm system to install in a Rubicon?
This is why you need to buy a quality named alarm. I don't know much about Code alarm but I do know alot about DEI electronics which make the Hornet and they are a good company. I was able to tune my microwave sensor and it never false alarmed. The only time I thought it did false alarm it turned out to be a Bird sitting on the center console. :lol:petesjeeprubi said:I had an Code alarm in my old jeep...it was a pain in the butt.....It had a motion detector inside of it and a shock detector too....I had it for a few years and both remotes died then the alarm shorted. After I traeded in that YJ I found out that the jeep had caught on fire..probably b/c of the code alarm wiring. When it did work the alarm would go off on the slightest motion....My suggestion for an alarm for a jeep would be to just install a kill switch, invest in some lockable storage and removeable face stero or get "The club"...and the obvious...dont leave expensive stuff in your jeep with no hard top on....lol my .02.
Sentry key does work but the only problem is that the engine runs long enough to get it away from where you parked it and on a trailer before the engine stops... I would be interested to see how long the engine will run with out it...I will have to get a plain key cut for the name of science. 8)triver525 said:I had an Alpine with the perimiter sensor in my last Jeep. My only complaint was the siren. It was nowhere near loud enough. You could be 4-5 cars away from it in a parking lot and not hear it. Also, the arm/disarm chirp sounded stupid. However, I rarely ever got a false alarm and it was really easy to install. I never bothered with the starter kill. Does anyone know if the little transmitter in the key actually works? Does it stop people from rippin' off my Jeep or is it just a gimmick and any kid with internet access can defeat it?
ther is a siren....and door switches... and motion sensorpetesjeeprubi said:LOJACK is great but it dosnt keep your stero from getting stolen or the stuff you leave lying around inside your jeep..but for total security of the jeep its the best ..plus insurance will give you a break if u have it...that is if your pocket book isnt broken already by how much it costs..lol
my JP has the same viper system....and i know there is a cutoffsynapuscapus said:Hello to all, I have been reading from this message board and it has been quite helpful, thank you.
I have the Viper security system installed, but I want more protection. I mainly want to protect the vehicle from being stolen, and I know the alarm is not going to stop a Pro. Somone mentioned putting a kill switch on the fuel pump. Do you splice a switch in at the fuse or near the pump? If anyone who has done this could share their methods of doing this, that would be great.
