That what seemed to work best for me. Right after I got the ST I was going to a buddies out of state and had some stuff in it, had all the doors locked.. come out from a rest stop and someone had just unzipped the window and apparently ran away. They didn't get anything but since then, rather than have the top slashed, I just left it unlocked and kept nothing in the truck at all or locked the center console. For longer trips, everything was packed into Pelicans, the cases locked and then using a steel security cable, cases were locked to the roll bars. The only thing someone looking for a quick grab item was going to get would be some jackets or hats.

I also have a cut-off switch installed in a not so apparent spot

This is the correct answer.

I run mine without the top almost all year. The doors don't even have locks. I never replaced them when they went bad. Anything of value gets carried with me. I leave the doors open/unlocked when the top is on so that if someone decideds they need my sweatshirt or dashboard hula-doll more than I they just open the door and grab it rather than slash my top. A locking case for tools in the back is about all you need. It's not like people put expensive high-end stereos and stuff in these. They'd just get wet anyways.

... the only time someone broke into my ST was a bum looking for some change. I was parked downtown San Diego, come out from the store and low and behold I see feet in the air and some dude apparently digging through the center console over the top of the passenger window. I walked up, asked him if he was done, he was pretty shocked and scared but also realized I wasn't going to do anything, and said he just got some coins and patheticaly held them out for me to see. I said 'ok, have a great day' and got in, and drove off. His mouth open the entire time.

Tools and an OBD2 scanner - that's all I keep in it. Heck, my radio is a stock RR and I don't close the "security" flap on the center console (97). I want it to be obvious taht it's not worth taking.

If these thieves had brains they'd take the folding rear seats or the rear rubber mat - gold!

Good karma for you Bob!
