    No, but that's a good idea. I'll look into it, I would have to match the existing bolt thread/size for the LED bar.

    Thanks Billy.

    Be careful with 'security' bolts. If you can get the bolts and the drill bit to use them, thieves can get the drill bit as well

    No matter how secure you make it, short of perhaps welding it on, there is always a way to get it off. The idea I suppose is to stop the casual thief. Kind of like a masterlock. Two box end wrenches will pop a masterlock, but if someone wants what you have that badly, they are going to get it anyway.

    Make sure the sign is in Spanish and Braille as well, gotta avoid lawsuits.

    Awesome.

    I think it's clear I should scrap the security bolt idea and look into a claymore throwing-machine gun dog to ride on the roof rack. I think the hardest part would be making the politically correct sign.

    Simple solution...

    Replace the fasteners with stainless cap screws, crank em down firmly, then fill the heads with liquid steel, PC-3, or some other epoxy.

    It'll at least slow em' down a bit, not to mention piss'n em off...
    And you too, if you ever wanna remove em...

    Next we meet, remind me to show you some of my "slow them thiev'n bastards down" invenshuns on my trailer & light bar...

    I'm leaning toward just welding the bolts on to the rack and using JB weld on the asjustment bolts. I was having trouble finding the right sized security bolt anyways.

    If the badies want to steal it... they'll have to cut it off.

    and i'm sure I'll need to remove the light bar right after the JB weld sets.

    I will be installing SFIFS on Sunday. Finally be able to test it out and see if it really works. I want to use a fork lift to test max articulation with/without SFIFS engaged. This is last step before everything goes to a machine shop and I look into taking orders. My guess is that it will be a very limited production run.


    Big thanks to Etfren for sending me the missing pieces to my SFIFS kit.
