    fuel pump kill switch is easiest fix on old manual cars. Even if you bump start it the car would grumble maybe one time and starve, even if hotwired. You simply put a fog lamp switch or something that doesn't even resemble anything important. You could put it in dash, under seat, even in plain sight if you do a small discreet one. Interrupt one wire, and its done.

    some great ideas!

    I was thinking, for the fuel pump cutoff, get maybe 6, 3 way switches in a row, and make some special combination of positions that all 6 have to be in for the circuit to complete?? Would be pretty funny too every time you get back in, you would feel like your powering up Doc Browns DeLorean.

    lol, either way, I think we could figure out a way to make it so that you and only you can make that truck move

    Glad to hear it was found. That is a sharp, well cared for rig! I had an '86 that I loved! It was a great truck that was traded for a 94 4Runner and that for a 08 Tacoma TRD Sport DC. There are far too many stolen vehicles of all sorts for them to be tow jobs. NICB says only about 5-10% might involve towing. Many cars have to be flat-bedded anymore, making it too noisy to use a tow rig. I had a Ravelco put on mine very soon after I bought it. I am out in the boonies a lot and can' trust cell phone or Lo-Jack to have service...and there are jammers available for less than $200 that take out these systems completely, GPS, too. Alarms...when was the last time you called the police about an alarm going off. Check out the testimonials at www.Ravelco.com and see what I mean. It will certainly work on yours and the tech comes to you to install. Easy to use, too, with no way to bypass it. No plug, no go. Even a tech can't get a key for it after it is installed, only you direct from the manufacturer. Lifetime warranty. Best wishes on keeping your truck where you parked it in the future!:D

    They should enact a "hate crime" type law that carries extra punishment for people molesting irreplaceable vehicles. Also tired of seeing Hollywood destroy classic cars in films :(
