How do you go about installing on a rental in 15 mins?

Bumper doesn't need to come off, and no running the wires through the firewall?

Or do you have some variety of custom mounts and keep the CPU in the engine bay?

Yeah he must be exceptionally skilled, that stuff is no joke! Hey

3M VHB and Bluetooth if I can't find an easy spot for cables on firewall.

This is what's nice about the Escort ZW5's. Easiest install ever

Anyone else put in ALP jammers on a older (early 2010s) car?
I have a civic with 125k miles from 2012 model year. Definitely not worth it from a financial standpoint lmao, just seems like an interesting project imo.

does the vehicle in question break the speed limit ? when you you decide to scrap the vehicle or trade just remember the jammer can be unninstalled

as finincial issiue first look at your threats in the area do you need the ALP ?

may i suggest doing some homework or research before purchasing any countermeasure product

even If you’re scared to break 25 over on the highway, it’s still really easy to pick up tickets in the city no matter what you drive. Here’s the other thing, when you put in jammers you might lose some money in instal hardware but if you’re doing it yourself, the worst case scenario is you’re giving yourself experience. Learning how to do everything and what all you want/need/like is what really matters so when you get your next car, you’ve already got a game plan. When you’re like me and you start with an audio overhaul, get a detector, then hardwire it, then add some interior lighting, then add some more charging ports and antennas and mounts then put in jammers and a radio before playing with the audio again- taking the whole car apart and putting it back together starts to get real old. Power distribution becomes a pain, all the wires are running differently, I’ve got several add a fuses, and it just becomes a mess. Not to mention space efficiency. Go ahead and beat up your 2010 beater so that when you get your next car you can do everything in one good instal day and have it all leaving the smallest trace and fire hazard possible.

detectors and jammers don’t have to stay in the same car forever.

Good stuff.
I'm getting the jammer install done for me this time, but, perhaps I will be able to see how it was done and use that as inspiration for any future projects.

But not as much as the tickets it could earn you if you don’t!

If the cost of speeding tickets was proportional to the value of the vehicle used, maybe POS installations could be debatable, but otherwise if you are considering owning LJ's, just get it done!

Yep, either you want protection or you don't, and the age of the vehicle is irrelevant. It's actually better, if you're looking at this from a purely financial perspective and even neglecting the probability of having to pay for a ticket and/or associated costs in time fighting it, installing jammers on a vehicle with 125k miles on it that you plan to keep for another 4 years than it is to install jammers on a new leased vehicle that you're going to have for 3 years. And if this is a vehicle that you plan to keep until the end of its life, you don't really have to worry as much about tearing out or cutting up internal panels compared with a leased vehicle that must be returned.

People don't seem to have any hesitation installing jammers on a new car, even if it's a leased car that they don't plan to buy out or they plan to trade it in within 3-5 years, but for some reason, some people hesitate to install jammers on a vehicle with 125k miles on it. Why?
Because people use emotion not math. Our brains react, then use logic to try and support our emotional impulses. Spending $1k on jammers is the choice, but they will use newer car as the excuse to potentially overspend.

I understand it could be a crappy car, but I just laugh a little when most people believe cars are too old or high mileage by this state.

If that's old then my car is a grandpa! My 2000 BMW and all 165,000 miles feel brand new to me!
At home I've got an 03 Ford ranger with 235k and counting! They are like new! Well, maybe not the ranger... Lol
I like the title having my name on it and not the bank's. That's enough for me to love my 20 year old machine. It's mine, unlike the majority of people driving cars right now.

This is me but I'm still planning to install a set. Ha. I will not be sharing this thought with my wife until maybe after I get everything installed. Can I count on you not to tell her either. :)
I'm with you on this.

I ran a 4 head ALP on a 2002 Hyundai Elantra with 300k miles lol. I think the jammers were worth more than the car.

It's not about the car. It's about you, the driver :)

When it comes right down to it, I'm a geek and that's why I run a jammer. I don't speed fast enough to get pulled over in the last 15 years or so. I never got shot once with laser in the 8 years or so I had my previous car and (Blinder HP-905 which doesn't alert to DE I've since learned) jammer, but installed an ALP on my new car.

It doesn't have to be about avoiding tickets and speeding; if you like the tech and the game, and you have the cash, give'r ;-)
