personally id wire up a fake kill switch placed in an obvious spot wired to an airbag. and then another to the fuel pump in a realy well hidden spot.. mabey one of those steering clubs that keep the wheel locked at a full turn, so if they try to drag it or push it, it wont go strait. best thing to do is have someone keep checking on it for you, such as a park ranger or a friend, or pay a local kid 40$ to keep watch on it..

It IS just a stupid, polluting, expensive-to-operate, reason-for-oil-wars, and cause-of-US-genocide-in-oil-rich-countries truck. You're absolutely right.

I had planned to have a switch in the driver's foot area that deactivates the neutral safety circuit, so that when they find it and switch it, they'll get the truck engine to turn over. And then, ya, hide the other switch that breaks the fuel pump circuit. Hide it good. The steering wheel club is a great idea, too. That might prevent someone from even trying to steal it. More trouble than it's worth. The two switches, and maybe an air horn rigged to the interior light circuit, would be the back-up plan if the club fails. Hey, you get more rep! Thanks!

They would be more likely to set it on fire for shits and giggles than steal it.

park it at home, catch a ride, or have someone drive it back.

yep, insurance policy and fuhgeddabout it.

Or get a couple cranky Rottweilers and enough kibble and water for the duration of the hike, and set an invisible fence to keep them near the truck. (you will have to work some kind of solar power or generator to operate the invisible fence, but hey, no one will come near the truck after seeing the Rotty's

we won't address teh liability issue if the dogs bite someone at this point.... other than to say "Those aren't my dogs... Never saw them before in my life!"

:p
