    Can't the trunk just be popped with a crowbar?

    Re: Tips to avoid getting jacked

    Luckily at work (grocery) the front of our store has about 50 foot section of glass windows facing the parking lot. I simply park my car in the closest spot to that window, so you have a clear view of my car from inside. Luckily, the checkout lanes are right there all facing that window, so if anyone tried to break in my car everyone in the checkout lane and parking lot would see it I also park in our garage at home, and park my car with my trunk facing the lanes at school, so the sec guard can see the tail end of my car. And I mean also, I drive a 97 accord with limo tint on back windows, and the darkest i could legally get on the sides. No rice mods, nothing at all. I try my best - I'd hate to have my pride and joy stolen.

    Very good information. I keep putting the alarm off too... I've been too lazy. Thanks for the re-motivation!

    Re: Tips to avoid getting jacked

    good tips, but I have to have stickers on my car. I have a kicker and Fi sticker, and I will continue to rep the **** out of those companies. I live in a good town anyways, I don't think I have much to worry about.

    Re: Tips to avoid getting jacked

    as i noted many pages ago..Disconnect the interiour trunk popper, disconnect (if available) the trunk lock mechenism in the trunk that is attached to the key lock... can only do that if you have a alarm/keyless entry w/ a trunk pop button though.

    Not very easily...definitely not as easy as just smashing a window and hitting the trunk button

    Definitely look into Viper alarms, they're amazing. I believe I have the 5900 and it has a 1-mile range which is awesome. I can pretty much arm/disarm my alarm from anywhere, so that means if it get's broken into, I'll know it.




  10. Thanks Radrick Davis thanked for this post

    Having your trunk deadlocked will stop thieves
