The Ravelco is $400-$500, but the story is that one has never been defeated.
TERRIBLE idea. Most trucks will run without the lift pump. 7.3's barely can tell unless under load. 6.0s will shell all 8 injectors pretty rapidly, especially with a crook holding ICP high trying to drive away. 6.4's pumps blow easily enough on their own without cavitating them and running without lube (fuel)A switch for the fuel pump sounds like a good idea.
Is your insurance paid up? Buy some cameras, including some hidden inside looking at the driver's seat (for after the truck gets recovered)....someone has tried to steal my truck twice in the past 2 months.
Park indoors.I don't want to take any chances.
...or just pop the hood & jumper the starter relay; or just reach under the frame & jumper the starter solenoid. IOW: not particularly effective, even against an amateur auto thief.What about putting a hidden button wired between the ignition switch and starter relay.? ... You would have to turn key to the on position, then push button to engage starter.
I did something like this a few years back on my Honda, I spliced a switch onto the clutch safety switch circuit. This is the circuit that closes when you depress the clutch, allowing the vehicle to start. What I've also done when parking in poor areas, is pull one of the primary fuses or relays from the fuse box, such as the fuel pump, etc... Sort of pain if you're doing it all the time, but nice for a quick way to disable your truck. The downfall to that is you still can get it started by kick starting the car. Actually the only way to be a step ahead of a car theif is to think like one and be creative
