Thanks for posting this, hadn't heard of them and now I'm 90% sure I'm going this route lol. Just curious, did the installer let you choose where to mount it?On my current Jeep I used a Ravelco. It's a kill switch they can't get around without 4-5 hours work. I'll be getting one right away for the 392 when it comes in. Sorry this happened to you! I'm in Los Angeles and Jeeps are big targets for use in Mexico.
Same here - I have already reached out to our local installer...
I want to sleep easy at night again.

I finally had the time to install the Rampage hood latches. They seem to be of good quality. Just one more layer of protection even if it takes someone 15 seconds to defeat it. Lol.Here’s the Amazon link:
These locking latches are a bit “stiffer” than the OEM latches; that is, you have to pull them all the way into the open position as opposed to the OEM latches that “flop open” when released. The locking nuts appear to be stainless which is encouraging since I live in an area of heat, humidity and salt. When you get the Rampage latches installed please let us know what you think and post a photo.
I'd like to see a password protection screen requirement on our touch screen. Just like your phone or home computer has. That should be so simple to do. What do you guys think of that?Has anyone inquired about the key programming lockdown or "gimp" mode that Stellantis does/started doing on the Dodge vehicles? I asked two locals and they knew nothing of it, nor did the service departments. I'm really wanting the key programming lockdown to come to Jeep.
Did you install the kill switch? if so how hard of a job is it to do?Thanks to @Cbb....
Yesterday I installed a Ravelco kill switch in addition to hood locks. This kill switch is the best I could find anywhere. Yes it cost $700, but worth it to protect an $80k jeep that is extremely hard to replace. I am also using a faraday cage bag to keep my key fob RF from being stolen. I think I have done all I can do to prevent theft.

So they have an installer come and do it or you can take it to them. Is what it looks like on the website.I also had a RAVELCO installed... once upon a time the RAVELCO was a DIY installation, at a lower cost, but you had to have a good schematic of your vehicle. Now, there are preferred installers throughout and you can contact them to do the install.
I learned about it from a video on stealing cars with the modern RF key fobs.... cars with auto door unlock and push button start, like our Jeeps. I believe these are actually less secure than autos from 10 - 12 years ago without push button start. There are many bag versions available, just google it. I chose this one:DavyBoy, I think you have gone above and beyond! If it gets stolen now they really wanted it. Great job! Do you have any information on the Faraday cage bag that is some old school technology I would have never taught of using..
@Membrain is correct!So they have an installer come and do it or you can take it to them. Is what it looks like on the website.
@Membrain is correct!
I went to an installer. It took about 3.5 hours. You can also contact the dealer in some cases and they will send someone to you to install it. On the Ravelco web site you can find a dealer/installer for your location. I am in Kansas (like you) and had to wait about 3 - 4 weeks for new dealer to take the midwest region, then they had to train a local shop on installation before I could schedule the install.
@jmwillia, since you are in Kansas I believe the only installer is Mash Motors, Inc. (1616 S 125th St E, Wichita, KS 67207) Mike Mash is the owner and will take good care of you. Otherwise call the Dealer number for the Midwest region https://ravelcomidwest.com/ and schedule a tech to come to you.
It's been a long nervous wait to get the kill switch, but I believe it is the best solution out there!
