Seems like this may be a good place to add; For some reason I have always wanted a vehicle that started when you pressed a hidden ignition button or switch. Wouldn't that be cool?
I called the dealer first and they told me yes they could do it. When I got there and told the guy's behind the service counter what I was after they asked who told me that. I told them I didn't get his name. They laughed and said we don't even have a machine to cut keys. I told them when they figure out who the prankster is to tell the SOB he cost them any future sells and went to the lock smith.
When you get thru cutting up a vehicle to make it an offroad rig you usually
end up putting a push button starter, ignition cutout ,battery cutout or something to deter a thief. One of the coolest I ever did was under the edge of the seat so after you got in you reached just under the edge of the seat and pushed the button. There was a fuel pump toggle and an ignition toggle on the dash and a battery cutout under the dash.
