    I don't think alarms are useless./ Cheap ones are just that CHEAP. Get a good alarm system with glass breakage and ignition kill and tow alarm. Might save your truck. Items laying around inside that can be seen is the biggest reason low lives break in. Hide your stuff.

    I'll just keep it the garage at night and hope who ever has my keys doesn't make it disappear

    you live in NW Arkansas...just sayin'. Try living in Mid City New Orleans. People pull guns out if someone is stealing their stuff, and thieves know it. Doesn't stop them from doing it all the time, but a potential break in can be discouraged in the right location and situation. Its all about risk for a theif.

    Viper, Clifford and Python all come from the same company and are indistinguishable from each other except for current sales. Those pretty much run the market.

    Point taken on Arkansas. Not a lot of crime. You'd have to be pretty bold, or stupid, to mess with a man's truck around here, especially when it's parked at a residence (you'd have to sneak up a gravel driveway and get past the dogs most of the time). Trailers, tractors, and ATVs are stolen more often than passenger vehicles.

    This made me think of some comedian i saw the other night. "you know those annoying car alarms people have? They should make the alarm the ice cream truck sound, so then you would at least get all the fat kids attention towards your car when ever it goes off"

    But seriously do they make a different car alarm sound? I think the problem is the same alarm sound everywhere.

    I was just messing with ya'. But this city (New Orleans) is getting crazy, people shooting up the place and whatnot.

    As far as car break-ins. There are groups of kids in the suburbs that go on sprees in neighborhoods and break into 8-10 cars in one night. They look for the unlocked cars, then the non-alarmed ones, so they can hit lots of cars. If they hit cars with alarms they have to split the scene, thus they would not break into as many cars.

    Some thieves will grab and run regardless, but I think an alarm does help some as a deterrent.

    Most thieves know to look for the blinking blue LED and the antenna of a paging Viper alarm and look elsewhere. If your alarm does ot pge you its worthless IMO.
