    Edit: Still, if someone tows your Jeep while you aren't looking, you'd want to have some sort of gps to track it.
    Mad max style kill switch sequence?

    Years back, I bought a new Toyota truck. Had the dealer install a spring loaded toggle switch which had to be engaged for the starter to work. Also installed a hidden kill switch for the fuel pump that was easily accessible.

    Anti-theft hidden GPS is essential. Mine is POKEMON, the positioning function is very accurate. The disadvantage is that it is paid monthly. The advantage is its powerful battery life. I have used it for 2 weeks and the battery life is 79%. It also has a power saving mode, which definitely allows it to last more than 4 weeks.

    Your reputation here again is flawless. I'm in. Where do I sign up? I was a little suspicious at first, but seeing that you just bumped a 4 year old thread, I know you're legit.

    I have a Spot Trace on my Jeep. It’s hardwired into the Jeep and has a battery backup. It sends me a daily status message via text and email with the Jeep’s position. It will also notify me when it moves and provides me it’s location every 5 minutes while it moves. I have driven from East Coast to West Coast as well as on multiple trails at Moab and it shows the position every 5 minutes. I pay a yearly subscription for this. I have been very happy with it.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
