    I know all the pros and cons, just curious which systems you like?

    Most interested in push button start with ability to lock the truck while I duck in to get coffee.

    Not stoked about the alarm but have too much $$$ spent on the audio to chance it.

    I have a Compustar in mine. Its just a remote start and door lock/unlock. I've had if for about a year with no problems. I did not do the install myself. I had a local shop do the install (Columbus Car Audio) I'm pretty happy with it so far.

    I dont know anything about aftermarket push button start but with the factory push button start if you have even an aftermarket remote start the engine will always shut off when you open the door. 12volt solutions makes a great plug and play system, I have it on my 2019, work with factory key fob. Are you saying you dont even have a fob now though? If you do then you already have a factory alarm and immobilizer.

    I have a Compustar as well, but it is a remote start and alarm.
    You can shut the engine off, get out, lock with the key fob, and restart the truck with the fob to keep it running and locked.

    I can also use the Drone Mobile app as a push button start.
    It also monitors the truck and notifies you if the alarm(s) have been triggered.
    A subscription is required for the app.
