Don't park in no parking zones. One of my friend's dads used to tow people, and he said no matter what you do, they can tow just about any car anywhere.

Any vehicle can be towed. They have tire dollies that will lift the car off of its own wheels. If they want it bad enough they will get it.:eek:

i've heard of it. a co-worker of mine used to steal cars that way. they'd jack it up with four different jacks, and put it on wheel dollies and wheel it down the street to a flatbed they had waiting.

i'd say find something with some sensitive movement sensors, but if they're too sensitive, they'll go off all the time and annoy you, but if they're not sensitive enough, if it's a good team of four, they could jack up your whole car and keep it even the whole time.

good luck dude

yup most alarms already have these built in its so if the car gets towed the alarm turns off .i guess you could have someone disable the built in sensor and rewire it so it goes off if the car is lifted the alarm goes off although seems kind of pointless as most people would just ignore a car being towed and the alarm going off . i think the money would be better spent on a car tracking device gps locater . no matter what you do to the car to immobilize it ,it wont work they just jack car up and put it on dolleys.

install a huge magnet in your driveway and another to the bottom frame of your car, then when you park it overnight activate the magnet so the car cant move anywhere

your viper doesnt have one?:eyebrow:

my old dodge neons stock alarm had it, & my alarm i have on my van does too.

gets kind of annoying though, b/c a car going fast enough past it. will make the car honk.

alarm wont do anything for you. so good luck. Basically the wheel dollies dont require floor jacks. It can be done with 1 person... they slide right on to the wheel a few foot pumps and its up, x4 for each wheel and its mobile. Right on to the trailer, flatbed or whatever. Your only chance is if your vehicle lays frame and you bolt it to the ground..

i like the idea of booting your own car, but it can still be towed. other than low jack, hearing the pager and getting to your car before it's gone with a bat is still the best protection. i live in crackville myself and i keep a sawed off hockey stick ready for deployment.

haha, yooz guyz forgots what I do for a living. I can tow any car at anytime, no matter what you put on your vehicle, without your knowledge.

Alarms with sensors will help safeguard you against the uninformed but pros will still get it. A lowjack will help get it back faster.

Most alarms don't come with a tilt sensor, but you can add one. My DEI works fine. And lol at it going off when a car drives by. A car would have to drive by FAST within a few feet of yours to actually tilt it, and then not enough to set off any alarm I have ever known of. That's one of the funniest things I have read here.

Chances are that 90% of thieves aren't going to jack up all 4 corners of your ride at the same time unless they really want your stuff and know you have a tilt sensor.

Lojack is okay, but a real GPS tracking device is much better. I forget the name of the one I see at the local shop I go to. It's not cheap, but it's SWEET.

Oh, and make sure you have a 2-way alarm, so that if the tilt sensor does get triggered and the alarm goes off, you will know.

They also make vertical sensors that can tell if you are moving up off the ground too (it's diff than a tilt sensor)

I don't know where you guys are getting the idea that most alarms come with tilt sensors.... they don't. It is usally a seperate module.

I have the exact same alarm system. I bought the digital tilt sensor to prevent them people from messing with my car. I have an extra tilt sensor if your interested. The digital one i have is the 507M. Message me with any questions
