March 4, 2006i was at my friends apartment and some punks tried to break into my truck but only managed to break my window before a guy across the street ran them off. my parents want me to get a car alarm. what is the best unit avaliable. i woul like to have the remote start feature and possibly windows.
March 15, 2006Best most expensive alarm is not nessesarily the best and what makes the best alarm the best anyway? I can still get in your truck and there is nothing that would stop anyone anyway!
The best defense is not to give anyone a reason to get in, install a nice stereo that someone can see an it will be a gonner in no time.
What where they going after?
Make a fake face plate to cover your radio, and go with anything from DEI. Viper, most everyone has one and it's reliable.
March 16, 2006Not many suggestions, huh!? I have a simple but loud unit on my truck now.
I had a Clifford alarm system installed in my previous truck. I was pleased with the functions and reliableness of it. I had it installed at a local CarToys back in the day--they stock many Clifford systems with rangning prices and options. It may not be the best system maker on the market, but it's plenty great in my book!
March 16, 2006thanks for the advise but i get a viper 791 put in like a week ago. i donno what they were after i dont have a system at all and the only thing of value was my over and under in a breakdown case between the seats covered with jackets so i know they didn't see it. i think they saw my truck was pretty nice and decided to break in. i'm just wondering why they broke the little super cab window with nothing by it and not a drivers window. they broke into about 13 cars that night and almost got caught trying to get mine.
March 16, 2006From what I've heard, theives prefer to break windows other than the drivers door window. If they are trying to steal the ride, then the thief doesn't have to sit in the glass...
How do you like your new alarm? What features does it have?
March 17, 2006they were just stealing stuff out of the cars, but not taking them. i like the alarm a lot. the remote start feature is cool as hell. i'll probably kill the starter from playing with it so much.
March 17, 2006well get a viper 791 and get the add on moduel that can hear glass breaking and the 791 has a option for gps and a lcd screen to tell you what is happening to for truck sell these things all day long they are great a little pricy but great.
