Potential security issue

My KJ mods are limited due to the fact that the
KJ IS my wife's vehicle, and she's happy with it as it is. But, I
have managed to get a couple of things done, mostly electronic. If you go to
this page, you can see a review of the Sirius
Starmate satellite radio in the Monster, an identical piece has been installed
in the KJ. Also, since here in W. PA, the first thing firefighters and police
officers do upon arrival at an accident is to immediately close 2 miles of a
road in both directions, and the fact that sometimes an alternate road is not
obvious, a Garmin Nuvi200w GPS unit was installed on the dash of the KJ.
Here's an issue. The nuts
holding the spare tire carrier to the body are easily removed by anyone with a
Crescent wrench. This was resolved with an ingenious solution I found on ebay.
The nuts are replaced with a unusual type fastener which is impossible to remove
without more specialized tools. A bit of Loctite acts as an additional bit of
As an additional note; the
satellite radio was properly installed with a great deal of help from the fine
folks at Crutchfield.com. The KJ uses a rather unusual antenna connector, and
the Starmate would not properly connect to the head unit without some adapters
supplied by Crutchfield. These folks are the best, and I highly recommend them
for any electronics!
