    I can get a remote start for not much more from VIPER..... i dont care so much for the remote start as i do the 1 mile range and all the other sweet things with it... usb charger on remote....

    any real downside to remote starts?

    I agree! I loved mine on the few vehicles i had them on.. (except my 5 sp Passat)

    I had it lurch forward on me when i was not in the vehicle... (i hooked it up at home with a toggle switch and forgot to flip the toggle switch.)


    I am thinking about doign the same on on my truck in the future.

    2 way is the way to go! that way you know what is going on with the truck when you can't see it!
