I have the 3.5RSX and I'd love to get the SST. I haven't found a whole lot of info on the SST, so is it a whole new alarm or can I just buy it and swap brain/remote? Thanks.

You'll need to swap the brain and antenna i *think*.

should just be the brain and antenna, which in the picture look the same but it could be different, if youre really worried about it call them and ask

Yes the main harnesses are all the same... but remote start harnesses and antennas are different.

Brain and antenna swap. No harness change at all. If your friendly enough with your local shop, they may do it for a couple bucks.

What would make you think that?

LUV2BHATED said all dei harnesses are the same... when their remote start harnesses aren't all the same :) the 3.5RSX(if its like the 881 and 791) are the same ribbon cable and relay pack as the python 900 and viper 5900.

I was just saying dei doesn't use the same harness for all their remote starts... their entry level ones are completely different.

*edit*now that i look back i read his post he was just referring to this unit not all units.

I can swap it myself. Already swapped out for new brain once, just need to see how much the SST is. ;)

Everyone who hooked me up from local store is gone now...:(

I'll let you all know. If I get it I'll write a review.

It is indeed a bit different from the previous RS3.5 (Im a clifford dealer,not Viper). Although the range is an improvement, if your used to the older 3.5/791 platform 50.5/5900 Will seem slower.

Few more differences than that, although minor.

not according to the manufacturer :D , but they could be wrong, i prefer the 3.5 though

Actually..different siren,Red Large LED with bezel, digital shock sensor rather than standard 504D in Viper, The remote colors arent the only variant- the Cliffords are a bit more flushed to avoid accidental pressing. Coincendential? Probably so, but still alot prefer it.

These are factual AND according to the manufacturer.

well when i walked in to directed and asked ron for the alarm he said "do you want the 3.5 or the 791...theyre the same thing but different remotes" im just going on what i was told;)

From a sales point, maybe so. Im just stating the facts. Feels free to go back and verify. I assure you though..the parts are not pulled from the same bins.

On which point? Are you telling me that the differences arent there? Or that the shock sensors are pulled from the same bin? I cant see a 504C and a 504D coming from the same bin, nor the LEDs either.

Shoot me an email/PM I like being proven wrong.

yes it is just the brain, antenna and the remote because the sst remote has a longer antenna on the remote than the normal remote. my buddy just upgraded the antenna on his 791 and gets like a 1/2mile range. i am gonna get the 791 maybe the sst depending on my mood at the point of order. i havent heard to much on the 5900 kuz not to many people are picking them up kuz of the extra $100 they cost.

im wondering when the new g5 remote is coming out, it was like half of the clifford/viper remotes and used a little scroll wheel on the side to scroll through the menus

If your referring to the "Matrix" line...neither. They will both function the same.
