I have a high end Clifford alarm with glass break, etc. What else can we do as owners to HELP the situation? I know there is no perfect solution, but how can we make it more difficult for these thugs to stay out of our cars? Thanks for suggestions - that video on another thread got me worried :suspense:

Get a Jimmi Jammer. http://www.jimmijammer.com/
Saved me twice in the four years I've had this truck.

Keep your doors unlocked... That's what insurance is for, plus they wont break anything when they steal it!

It cost me 100 to install the jimmi jammers and 250 and 4hours sitting at the dealer each time I had to replace my door handles.

For me this beata the alternative of not finding my truck and having to bother with rental cars and insurance claims.

Pick your poison.

Dobiesdaddy: Those Dobe's are BEAUTIFUL. I have two as well. They are smarter than I am. Best family dogs I have ever owned (I have 4 kids ranging from 1 year to 8 years old). Those dogs are so loyal, playful and protective of my kids. Sure wish the Dobe's would have been in my ride a month ago when it was broke into. :bomb: The jackasses didn't just brake the window, they tried to pry it open with a crowbar before breaking the window, bending the door frame. They then ripped out my navigation unit (pioneer Z110BT) which is locked with a code (I don't know if there is a way to bypass the code). They didn't even take the steering wheel control module or the interface module that was connected to the unit. They then tried to cut the monitors out of the headrest, unsuccessfuly, when all they needed to do was push the button on the bottom and pull the headrest out. I almost had to laugh at how stupid they were :cookoo: (which is why instead of getting a real job, they go around jacking other peoples stuff). Anyways I have heard of several different ways to piss off whoever is trying to steal your ride (not as effective as Dobe's). One guy put a bunch of those ear pearcing personal alarms all over inside the cab and hooked them up to his alarm. If you have ever heard one of these you know that's going to blow their eardrums out. :yup: Another guy hooked up a bunch of razor blades to his head unit. :lildevil: I have also heard of someone hooking up some sort of tazer to the head unit so that when its pulled out so far it will shock the shiz out of them. If you go into the audio forums they have a lot of great ideas.

Nice Ride

Working on a electric hood lock for my 09 esv. Just received 2 different products. Will be installing within the next few weeks. What year is your truck?

Nice doggies, I raised them for almost 20 years, had 7 litters (41 puppies) just too hard to get rid of the little ones. :)
