    Racer X recently gave his thoughts about Mopar thefts. He stated that high performance Mopars are 5X more likely to be stolen. The hot spot cites are Detroit, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Charlotte.

    In the video, he runs through some basic anti-theft precautions such as: garaging, night-time lighting, alarm systems, GPS trackers, wheel locks, etc.

    I’d like to see auto makers get with the times. Facial recognition, some sort of two part verification, remote kill switch. Some new features and improvements are greatly needed in this area.

    That's why I installed a Ravelco anti-theft device on my SRT. Great protection.

    I’m familiar with the product I’ve had two of them. Revelco has been around a long time. All I’m saying is the manufactures should be stepping up and providing their customers with better security. With the electrical system the way they are and all of the technology available it should be cake walk for them.

    I used to install kill switches for my customers. I know they work because I also installed them on our Cadillac fleet cars and two cars were broken into and had the steering columns pulled apart but not taken since they couldn’t figure out the kill switch.
    These types of devices will defeat most but if a true pro wants your car, he’s going to get it.

    using the UBONNECT Ram app, it has the location finder built in. problem is it cost you about $150 a year for the subscription. I paid for it for 2 years but I didn't renew for this year.
