Do they make a steering wheel that looks factory that is removable for security reasons?

I also found this thread that you might want to read up on, Jeep/Starter disable

This is part of the research that works, "Pass the ignition through both of these in such a way that the only way to start the Jeep would be to pull the parking lights on and push the brake pedal while starting".

I think it's cool having to to what is stated above.

P.S. I still would like to know about the steering wheel.

Thanks but, "This system must be used with a Grant® Custom Steering Wheel and Grant® Steering Wheeling Mounting Kit (all sold separately)."

I'm looking to keep a stock/stock wheel appearance to the Jeep.

Thanks again,

Grant has a setup to pull your steering wheel off in about 5 seconds making it "unsteerable" - at least it will deter the joyriders although you still have to stash your wheel somewhere. Not sure if the JCWhitney reference above is the Grant one - but probably expected to be used with a Grant wheel.

For the wiring - any creative approach could be used. The way this one is described, the hot starter solenoid lead would be rerouted through the parking lot/turn signal/whatever, preventing the starter from engaging. Any number of things could be done, underdash toggle, magnetic switch, push switch under the clutch. The really po' man setup is to pull the coil wire. :2thumup:

Just remember either setup only keeps the honest thieves out and is just a deterrent.

For a more dependable theft deterent system - see this post.

ya beat me to it.

I am sure it wouldn't take much "tweaking" to make a stock wheel work. Grant also has some very inexpensive wheels and some wheels that keep a "vintage" look. I pulled my grant off my camaro - which has been on blocks longer than I care to admit. RIP.

You can adapt your stock wheel to the grant kit... It's a matter of if you want to take the time to drill the holes in the stock wheel ... They can not be seen when finished, But it can be a pain to get them in the right location...

if you are looking for a way to protect your jeep so it won't be stolen, I simply cut the power line to my fuel pump and installed a kill switch and hid it somewhere in my jeep. if my jeep is parked for a long time or somewhere that i don't trust, i just hit the switch and the pump shuts off. if they do get it hot wired, there is only enough fuel in the engine to move the jeep 10 feet, a theif isn't going to problem shhot a stolen jeep. sometimes i forget that i flipped the switch, i start the jeep, it idles for 20 sec. then it dies. :2thumup:

I like this idea the best. :cheers: :first: Can you elaborate on the location of the wires, color code, etc and possibly post a pic :scratch:

For us that pump fuel the hard way....

What year(s) did Jeep go with electric fuel pumps? When FI came from the factory I'll guess?

There are all kinds of theft deterents. You can also put a toggle switch to kil thepower going to the primary side of the coil, or even the ground side of the coil. You can put a battery disconnect switch in, they make em with keys that are needed to maek the connection You can also put a second floor mounted hig/low beam switch up under the dash so you have to really know where it is at and use it for the fuel pump, ignition disable.
