I'd put a basic command start in, and a hidden "kill switch" for the ECM somewhere. Thieves may get in, but they can't start or move the truck unless they find the switch.

Alarms rarely save the day, and usually just make noise with no results. IMO, a waste of money.

Exactly my opinion too.
I use a reed relay hidden below the dash. A magnet above the dash closes the reed relay allowing to start.
I do have a Viper too- I do use it because the remote has a nice range. That's it.

I do have a multi zone pager installed which is a nice option, if you have to travel and sleep in a Hotel. Let's you know if someone touches the door lock, or enters the car.
Stuff of value is locked in a small safe, bolted down to the metal below the rear seats. Welding isn't required if you use self locking nuts inside the safe.

Kill switches are way more effective- thieves are usually busyand don't want to spend more time than necessary.
