    You know what I don't see on here (even in silverback07's list)?

    Security System!!! :eek:

    This will be my next upgrade as petty crime is on the rise everywhere. I am looking for a good system that I can install myself with a few extra "tricks" on board. I am open to recommendations. I plan on doing remote start.

    I am looking at doing this:


    Viper 5601 1-Way SuperCode Security and Remote Start System

    http://www.viper.com/P-5102V/Viper+5601+1-way+Supercode+Security+And+Remote+Start+System

    [​IMG]
    Protect your vehicle from thieves and vandals, and start your engine with the push of a button from up to 2,000 feet away. The Viper 5601 features two slender and elegant 5 button SuperCode remote controls. Based on the Best of Innovations Award-winning 2-Way Responder LE Security and Remote Start System, this is the value-priced 1-Way version.
    Includes all of the key vehicle security components including the Stinger® DoubleGuard® shock sensor, Failsafe® Starter Kill and Revenger® 6-Tone Siren, plus the very latest in Remote Start technology, including Virtual Tach, D2D and XPRESSPORT™.

    I was actually looking at the two-way version of this alarm, but mainly for remote start (since I live in the land of the frozen tundra). I also liked this one because the remote wasn't the size of a brick with an antennea.

    However, it was going to take them almost an entire day to do the install and since I live alone, it was going to be difficult logistically. So, I took that $500 and put it into my sound system. I'll add it later...

    Yeah the 5602 (2-way alarm) has many more features, and (from what I am told) has to be installed by a professional. However, the 5601 (1-way alarm) can be installed by a reasonably talented person, and it still has the remote start, code hopping, RPM sensing, and so on.

    Also, I like the remote. It doesn't look like these other cheesy ones that make it look like you have a rice rocket. I know that is a dumb reason to like it (especially with all the other features), but my truck is sleek - the remote should be too.

    Yeah, features be damned, I was going to chose the alarm because of that remote... :) I actually didn't notice the 5601 (until recently), nor do I even know all of the features of either model.

    It was really all about the remote. Then, I thought about painting the remote just like that guy that painted his key fob... :)
