an alarm will only help alert you if it's paging. Noone looks when they hear an alarm anymore
Better then the expensive, ugly grey plug- wire yourself a hidden kill switch. Millions of installs of them over the years. All police cruisers have one to prevent them from being stolen.
Wire the cig lighter in line so it has to be depressed for the starter relay to throw- or a seperate hidden switch, or the directional circuit...then nothing looks out of place, no master key- no extra fob on the key, no extra key to forget...and nothing for a thief to see- if they steal it after you do that either you forgot to deactivate it or they knew what you did.
Full disclosure- My Ram has a Clifford system installed. It's wired so I can bypass it after having the brain of the alarm and the auto start module both fail causing me to not be able to shut the bloody thing off. Every time I'd shut it down the thing would restart it! Had the tech set it up so I could bypass it if it happened again when they replaced the units.
