New LED lights

Finally got around to fabbing up some light bar mounts. sure would have been easier if you could buy some from the aftermarket. Anyways, 54 inch bar and 2 cubes to replace the round Hellas I had before.

Warning for everyone considering a light bar, I had this on my truck exactly 10 days and some dirtbags stole it from me. I have security cameras pointed right at it and they were done and gone in under 2 minutes. Obviously they had the right tools with them, so should you do this find some kind of tamper proof fasteners to attach it. They did more damage to my paint than the bar cost.

Jeez, where were you when that happened?

Was it a crime-prone area?

I have had mine about 9 months with no issues thankfully, but mine is on the roof secured with 9/16 aluminum bolts.

I guess it still wouldn't be too hard to get off if you had the right wrench and you were tall enough.

How did they damage your paint?

Thiefs really suck.

Hopefully the security cameras got a good look at them.

They stole it in my driveway. That's my security cameras. When the guy on the drivers side bent the bar towards the passenger side the bracket dented an scratched the top of the door. I live in a very secure neighborhood. I think it was someone on my street. Very strange I had it in the street adjusting the lights 3 hours earlier. I only have cameras because when we moved in 9 years ago we had a small vandalism problem. The cameras took care of it and have had no problems since then.

Dude, that's ridiculous - in your own driveway?

Really??

I'd be taking those pictures straight to the cops.

Just out of curiosity - do you have those motion sensor security lights in your driveway?

I couldn't imagine someone standing there doing that with those security lights shining right in there face.

That looks like an IR camera, so, I'm guessing no security lights?

I have the driveway lights on a sensor that turns them on at dusk and off at dawn. I guess when they say criminals are stupid they mean it. I have a big sign right above their head stating they are being recorded and they either can't read or didn't care. The cameras are motion activated to cut down the time it takes to fill the DVR. No surprise the cops said without a license plate # they can't do anything, but if I aim a camera at the street all the cameras record every time a car goes down the street. Kind of a catch 22. I'll just lick my wounds and move on. Normally I park in the garage but for the last few months I've had my kids 280Z turbo charged 6.0 chevy car in there doing some work on it. I told him to take it away so I can get in the garage again.

That really sucks wingdog.

It's pretty sad when you can't leave your vehicle parked in your own driveway without someone screwing with it.
