          AR-15.

          But if thief is determined they can take whatever and Ill have to file a claim.

          It should be known, in order to steal my mopar they either need to finish it for me or bring a trailer.

            Thieves, at least the ones around here, don't mess around any more. They use a flatbed.
            Kill switch is probably your best/least expensive option. I've read about an extremely simple, genius one...but if the thief is at all knowledgable regarding early ignition systems, not worth a darn.

              These cars can be hotwired in 30 seconds by someone that knows what they’re doing.

                  If they intend to hotwire it and drive it away, they had best bring a rotor with them.

                    pull the coil wire out the coil when you leave it
                    at least make them earn it.

                        Insurance. Park smart. Lighting. Car cover. Motel lots, aim for a spot where it is difficult for the tow truck to back in.

                                One of the best ways to keep your car is to drive one that isn't interesting. No, this isn't mine. :)

                                    I am also part of this club. Can't steal it if I never finish it.
