Does anyone have any thoughts on a theft deterrent device for the new RAM TRX? I was thinking maybe a kill switch of some sort. I have a steering lock mechanism to deter someone from thinking about stealing the truck.

Any ideas would be nice. Thanks!

If someone really wants to steal your TRX, they'll back up with a flatbed truck that has some bogus towing company name on the side and pull the vehicle onto the bed and drive away. It can be gone in less than 15 minutes and no one will question a tow truck driver.

Does your truck need to have cellular or internet connection?

I'm not sure how the device communicates to your phone.

A kill switch would be the simplest and the least expected.

I know this is an old thread, but there are two preferred devices among TRX owners for keeping thieves from starting your truck. Ravelco and IGLA.
