    Step bars, billet grill with custom TOYOTA, MB Quart RSI 216 components, Hifonics ZXi 4410, RAAMmat deadened doors/back wall/roof covered with ensolite , 24" Magnaflow muffler, hand polished stock exhaust tip, tinted, OEM TRD Bilstiens all around with 1/4" spacers up front to level it out. Sport wheels added.
    There are so many out there it's hard to seperate what's good and what's junk. I'd like to know brands to stay away from and why, (not just because you "heard" it was junk). Looking for experienced installers opinions here.

    Since I have a regular cab truck with manual, I don't need a bunch of usless features. I don't want remote start, lock/unlock features, etc...

    I am simply looking for a good basic alarm that will deter thieves is all. Recommendations?

    TIA

    Not a professional "installer" but i'll chime in anyway. I have the Viper 1002. Its as you described, basic which is what i wanted too. Whats so nice is the expandability of it as well. I added back up battery, and glass break sensor as well. No false alarms. Paid $280 installed.
