    Ok cool. Black headed key means you have do NOT have a paypal factory immobilizer. So that will save you some money not having to buy a bypass module. And one less headache if you are installing yourself.

    Good to know. I have seen some kits that you can start from your Android or Iphone, that would be cool if its not terribly expensive but it is not necessary either.

    I have heard bad things about the Viper smartstart. I hear that it is slow as all hell. It takes almost 2 minutes for a command on your phone to actually reach the truck. People complain about that lag. Plus you have to pay a yearly fee for the service. IMO, its just a waste of money. I would just go with a nice 2-way paging system.

    Honestly, the sky is the limit. It all depends on how many features you want, and how much you are willing to spend. For 250, you can get Viper's two way remote start alarm, the Viper 5901. They run about 200-250 online, but most shops sell them for 550-600+.
    But even a high quality system is only as good as the install. Shanin can tell you about that, as she had a Clifford that never worked properly. She asked me about it and even sent me a pic of the mess they left in the dash. I told her to go back and demand they reinstall it, PROPERLY. She did, and said it has worked fine ever since then.

    Just avoid the unknown brands that people sell on Ebay for dirt cheap. Anything made by DEI should be reliable, Prestige, Code Alarm, Crimestopper, and Autopage. I highly recommend Autopage, that's what I have on my Suburban. I installed it in Jan 2006 and it hasn't skipped a beat.

    I'd probably do an alarm if I was you, along with the Remote Start.

    I plan on doing that. Your truck has aftermarket wheels, as does mine we automatically become targets for theft.

    I need to invest in one, especially if I move to Charleston. Where they have way more break ins
