You're gonna get different answers and/or arguements from everyone.


I have what came with the trucks, the GM factory alarm on the Blazer and Lo-jack on the fullsize.

well, since Im an installer at Circuit City Im going to say Viper alarms. They are very good alarms to say the least and also pretty easy to install. I have the viper 550esp/remote start on my xtreme, plus like 10 sirens. Very loud.

gotta protect my audio investment ya know.

of course my cost is different than urs would be, but the alarm with install will run about $399.

This includes remote start, shock sensor, regular alarm, door locks, etc.--550esp--

you could also get the proximity sensor, add a relay and put like 10 sirens on it like I have. I have 5 regular sirens on the chassis, and 5 mini piezos on the inside. Unbearable on the inside to say the least. Outside is equally attention getting because it is so loud.

The real question is how much are you willing to lose? I've had one truck stolen and I wont do it again, without a decent alarm system.
Like everything else you get what you pay for. Buy cheap and expect cheap results.

I don't think its the price. It's how the alarm is installed and what features it has. Some of the less expensive ones will work as good as the really expensive one. Just pick the right combinations of features and have it installed properly.

I have a Lo-jack (dealer installed price $900, the trucks first owner had it installed, I got the invoice), before on my other vehicles, I would get a standard $89 alarm and I've never had trouble with them. For those 6 yrs I never had anything stolen from my vehicles. And I live in what is considered the ghetto, South Central LA. But I also am very careful where I leave my vehicles parkerd, always and in any type of area, rich or poor.

if you want the alarm loud, just add a relay to the install and get alot of sirens. I have 5 on the chassis and 5 on the inside. The ones on the inside are behind each vent and under the dash. On the underside I have 3 up front and 2 in the back under the bed.

The more the merrier and the louder it will be.

I plan on adding at least 5 more.
