    LoJack/GPS tracking devices

    In light of yesterdays theft of the EVO vehicles and trailer I have started looking at some of the anti-theft/tracking devices on the market. With how much time & money we have invested in our rigs, I for one would like to make it difficult as hell for some good-for-nothing SOB to drive off in my Jeep never to be seen again. Lo-Jack isn't available in my area. Anyone use any of these services and/or have any suggestions?

    Good topic. Subscribed. I'd like to know what's available as well.

    Interesting idea. Here's what a quick Google search brought up: http://www.ebay.com/gds/Top-5-Car-Tr...7678162/g.html.

    I bet a local police dept would have some good ideas too.

    You probably qualify for a decent discount on your car insurance with something like this too. Definitely looking into something like this.

    I think I'm going to call my auto insurance agent as well as the state & local police to see what they think. Would hope the police would be able to advise on what they have found works best over the years?

    LoJack/GPS tracking devices

    After a number of vehicles were stolen in my neighborhood, I had a viper system installed. It has a motion sensor system which works pretty well with the doors off. It has a tracking chip. And if the alarm is triggered it sends a text to your phone. You can track it anywhere from your phone as well.. Fwiw..

    LoJack is mediocre at best. It is medieval technology with minimal range. Plus the law enforcement vehicles have to be equipped with LoJack tracking capabilities to locate your vehicle.

    I would recommend some sort of tracking device hidden on your vehicle. I have a gps tracker on my jeep that will pinpoint it's exact location if it's parked or moving. I do pay a yearly fee, but I'm ok with that.

    There are a lot of alarm systems with good tracking also. But I have seen the installers in my town so I passed on that.

    My dealership installed the LoJack on mine when I bought it. I don't even know where it is in the jeep but I carry the other half on my key chain. Rather be safe than sorry so I bought it. They say they can recover your car I'm an hour if it is stolen.

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.
