Securing your pick up camper shell

Hi all,

We are planning a trip through south and central America next year. We are planning this trip with a 2005 Nissan Frontier with a camper shell on the back. You know, one of these truck cap jobs. We rigged up a sleeping platform with storage underneath. I should post pictures, it's pretty sweet. 

My question is about security. The shell locks, but I can imagine it would take a determined thief about 3 seconds to get in the bed of the truck. Has anyone bulked up the security of their shell with any other locking mechanisms?  Pad lock? Cables? Alarms?  Something I'm not thinking of?

BTW, this site is fantastic. Wealth of information for our upcoming trip. 

Thanks in advance.
