I bought my uncle's CJ7 from him and the speedo stopped working. I called him up and asked him what "that little magnet and wire set-up for the driveshaft" was all about and would it fix my speedo. He informed me that it was a driveshaft alarm, so that even if somebody tried to push, pull, or tow your rig, as soon as the shaft spun the alarm went off.
Though, it doesn't do much good when you come home from two weeks of extensive at-sea, submarine training and find that your brand new 36" Boggers and M/T Classic IIs were stolen from your POS '86 Dodge Ram... without the courtesy of putting the truck on blocks! Which is, another story in itself.
I never got to use the driveshaft alarm, because I never really looked much more into it due to the fact that I was way more concerned about the rapist living in my apartment complex than I was about the meth-heads stealing my Jeep, but that's NW Washington for you.

It doesn't matter now, the Jeep is currently in my garage in East Valley, AZ... and some (a lot) in West Valley, AZ... and some in Tucson, AZ. But all by my own doing. Project time!

I like the idea, thought about adding a switch to the e-brake, so when it's released it would go off. But put the horns under the dash

Ok it might of been answered somewhere in here already but I didnt read the whole thing. I was wondering with the brake locks that people are using to lock up the brakes when they set their alarm, dosent that drain the battery because it takes power to hold the solenoid?

Lightbulb Theft protection and recovery - gsm gps tracking alarms

Hey Fellas,

Wanted to share this info about theft prevention and recovery.
We have been pretty lucky to never get our junk stolen but with today’s craziness going on where we live (central mexico) we decided to invest in these covert tracking alarm.

We were going to buy another device similar to the lojack that we got offered and have used before at rally races, but doing our research we found out that these devices are big in size and easily located and blocked plus the monthly monitoring fee is expensive.

Recently we were offered the newest gsm tracking alarm that we purchased at TRACK ANY CAR in Laredo Texas. These guys are great and even partnered up with our racing team. They are offering a special pirate price to kick off the new year! So if you are interested in investing in the ultimate solution in car theft prevention contact them. Contact them via their website and put attention for Frank, and mention the keyword “PIRATE”. Frank is also looking for distribuitors in the USA. They are wholesalers.

Instalation is a breeze, and unlike other tracking alarm units this one has a back up battery just in case your battery gets disconnected. All you need for it to function is a prepaid gsm sim that you can buy almost anywhere nowadays and you cell phone. The device basically sends you gps coordinates via sms to your cell phone so you can track it. You can also configure the device to send you alerts for high speed, movement, geo fencing, low battery etc.

Another great and unique feature is that this device can be programmed into a covert listening device. This was the feature we liked the most. We will be renting our rally car in a couple of months and now we can track it and also listen in to see whats going on during the rental.

Well, you can view more details and videos on their website TRACK ANY CAR.

Ponce

I rewired my saturn so it no longer uses the stock ignition to start the engine (still needs it to run), and i always leave the key in it. if someone turns the key from "run" to "start" the horn goes off and locks the doors (so they can't hear it!). that oughtta confuse the shit out of 'em!

vice grips. my dad's had to tow a few junk cars without wheels, he'd just have someone sit in the car and steer with the grips, using the clutch to stop. very illegal, but I doubt a thief is worried about legality.

Inexpensive Car Alarm with GPS Tracker





Here are some images of how the configuration of the tracker looks like, the unit always responds via SMS to your cell phone.


The tracker can be switched to MONITOR mode so you can hear what is going on in your car at anytime.


When you sms the TRACK command to the unit it will respond with cordinates so you can track via google maps.


Works very similar to the Lo-Jack but you control it. We have our units hidden in our vehicles and connected to a 12 volt source, the unit has a 48 hr back up battery. We have them programmed that alert us if the vehicles leave a certain area.

To get the special price of $89 with Free Shipping and the Free 12volt hard wire all you have to do is CONTACT BY CLICKING HERE and mention "PIRATE 4x4" as the promo code or pm me to get the deal!


This is what the Tracker Alarm comes with:
* Tracker unit
* 2 Batteries
* Charger
* Water proof bag
* Software
* Magnetic and Plastic Cover
* Free 12 volt car charger[/B]

Go with Ravelco...

One word: Ravelco. nohotwire.com

I had a '94 YJ Sahara stolen from SDSU about 4 years ago in December during finals week, and then got a replacement 2005 Rubicon LJ. Well, the LJ got broken into the first week of the following spring semester but thieves couldn't circumvent the Ravelco anti-theft device. LJ was open and steering column was broken and running dash lights were on(in starting mode) but still there in it's space. I also had the early warning system from LoJack but that doesn't work until it's actually stolen!!

Get Ravelco!!!!

After reading this thread, Im thinking someone should have a metal steering wheel, have it isolated from the column, and run a plug wire from the distributor to a three switch. The switch would give you two options, juice from the igniter to the distributor, or juice to the steering wheel.

Might want to get seat covers for someone who loose's control of certain functions.

Oh this is good, the steering wheel is hot.

Bummer on the 44 loss, guess I'm not the only asshat in the hood.

Use the vibrating motor in a pay as you go phone to set off an electronic detonator to detonate the explosives next to the gas tank effectively killing the person who stole your vehicle.

Ravelco, is the ONLY way to go...

I had a nicely built YJ stolen from SDSU during fall finals week, a few years ago. My replacement was an '05 Rubicon LJ. I wanted all the protection I could get, but without the noise of an alarm. I went with the Lo-Jack system with early warning (for insurance discount) and a Ravelco unit. The LoJack doesn't even work until the car is actually stolen. Anyway, during the first week of the spring semester, they tried to steal my replacement. They popped my door lock (hardtop) and broke the column. They had the instrument lights on, but couldn't get it started!!! Ravelco kept it from being stolen...

Many of our members use Ravelco, and swear by it. Check it out...
