Default Viper 5901 alarm

Hi, I am purchasing and going to install a VIPER 5901 Alarm system on my 2001 Ford Ranger. Is there any issues/tips or tricks with installing the remote start or any of the other features on the 5901 system? Thanks in Advance, Nick.

Be advised, you might need a special nuetral safety switch and/or e-brake tap to enable it if you have a manual trans. Not sure if you will need a "dead key" to do it or not. Be prepared to tear alot apart to access the proper wiring and such... Good luck!

*maybe someone with more knowledge of your truck year might be able to chime in, but I have done 2 and they were a complete PITA!
