    Front AND rear? Jeebus. I like to leave my front wheels cranked all the way over when I park my 98 in my gf's driveway overnight (one car garage). Makes it impossible to pick up from the rear wheels and drive away. Wonder if cranking the wheels would prevent a 4 wheel unit from lifting it?

    Well, at least her driveway is right under her bedroom window and she keeps a revolver in her bedstand.

    that won't help either they will just use gojacks under the front wheels and your car is easily moved off the driveway .

    I have had cars that I put an electric door lock switch in the door and wire it as a kill switch. You could do the same with a defroster switch in the dash or a window switch in the console.

    Use the factory switch in the correct place.

    A thief will (usually) not try all the factory looking switches.

    Another trick is to wire a second headlight dimmer as a kill switch and leave it under the carpet near the orig. one.

    Leave the line-lock on, tail panel cutout switch off, and fuel pump off.

    My MSD has an extra wire that can (and will) be used to kill the ignition.

    I've got a switch in my ash tray I was planning to wire into the middle of my tach wire... the car ought to run for a few seconds and then die and basically act like it's a busted POS.
