So im seriously considering buying an alarm for my truck. For some reason or another i have been losing sleep as to which options to choose and what i exactly need.

Prices Installed:
Viper 5000 - $375 2-way, 1/4 mile range, NO remote-start
Viper 5900 - $550 2-way, 1 mile range, remote start
Avital 4400 - $450 2-way, 1/5 mile range, remote start


The 5000 is the only 1 that doesnt have remote start, and the avital only has 2 extra channels for added modules. The vipers are 6 chan.

Are these prices good? And what would you choose if you had $700.

I have the python 990 and its the same as viper 5900. It replaced the python 881xp which i believe is the same as the viper 5000...i really like the 990, i havent been far enough away from my car to where it wont work. but other than range its the same system as the 881

Decided to go all out and get the 5900. I will write a review after I have it installed and play around with it for a while.

good choice, i just finished installing that alarm in my mustang... its the secod alarm that I got and the first I have installed...

Everything works great, the range is pretty far... farther than my friends viper 791xv.... :-) i love the remote start feature too......
