i guess this would go here...

im looking into alarm systems for the new titan and i think im pretty much settled on the Viper 791vx.

do any of you guys have any experience with that particular alarm or recommend another one.

also what other security alarms do you guys have on yall cars. im also getting the remote installed, that should be fun.

On the install, make sure you are buying from a local retailer, stay away from the big boxes. The big box retailers usually do not have great installers. Ask them if they use "T-Taps" if they do, leave. T Taps are wire splicers that can and do fail very often.

Make sure you get or purchase, a hood pin, starter disable and parking light flash. I am also a huge fan of battery back up sirens.



i called and asked about the "t taps" and they said they solder the main wires that matter and "t tap" the small wires.

they said that the parking light flash and starter disable come with it. the back up battery($130) and the hood pin($40) so thats not a bad price. not a bad price i think.

the peace of mind worth it alone and if the alarm every does go off while im at home. im coming out with gun in hand ready to pop off

put a kill switch in the hot wire to the fuel pump the crooks will not take the time to look for that

you know where the kill switch is if it fails you just put a jumper on it till you replace the switch if the alarm kill devise fails you most likly have to have the installer of the alarm do that and that could leave you stranded for awile

Why do you want to spend money for a alarm/kill system when your truck came from the factory with one. There's a chip in the key and the engine won't start without the key. And if someone tries to use a non chip key the system will go into a lockdown mode. Nissan calls it NATS and it works VERY well. IMO, you're wasting money adding anything aftermarket to it.

stealing the car is only half of it. breaking into the car is another part. also just protecting my property in general.

with the two way system i will know the minute somone tries to break into my car to steal something or to try to steal the car itself.

id rather know when someone is out there trying to get something instead of finding out the next time i go out to go somewhere. i know some may not want anything and think the factory is enough but IMO it is a greater peace of mind to have another alarm as good as the viper on top of the factory system.

i dropped my truck at the shop this morning at 10 and got a call about 4:30 telling me the work was done.

i went to pick it up and the guy explained a few things about the remote, mostly about the remote start but some about the alarm.

i'll read the booklet tonight but so far its awesome. no real need for the remote start as of now since its not really that hot outside and its not winter yet, obviously, just the cool factor so far

its my first alarm so nothing to compare it to but it has everything...that i need anyways...
