From the posts i've been reading here, the anti-theft system involves the PCM and a module so if the module is removed does that eliminate the system or is it more complicated than that. My reason for wanting to do this is that every once and a great while the anti theft system is triggered out of the blue. This past weekend I was out wheeling and it went off so I tried hitting the panic button on the key fob but the battery was dead. Luckily someone in our group let me use the battery in his fob so I could get going again. If it wasn't for him, I would have been stranded out in the desert for awhile until I could get a simple little battery.
