I am a little weary of it getting stolen, I would have to weld the mounting nut to the bolt. (Had my factory tail lights stolen out of my unit the one day I didn't lock my tail gate) lol

I am trying to mount one by bolting it to the metal brackets on each side by the tow hooks. Not sure how I am going to get in there with a drill bit to drill holes.

Go talk to Terry at Masterauto spa in town here. He has mounted lots on the 08-10 F350 style trucks in that space. He will know for sure how to do it. His number is 780 871-2339

They make a special keyed end that goes on before the nut on the mounting bracket. I bought them like 25 bucks i believe. It comes with a special keyed chuck to get it off, but i am sure if a guy tried hard enough you can still get it off like anything.

I installed same light on my Dodge in the same location. I broke a piece of stainless the same profile as the bumper and mounted it inside the bumper. I used the 2 holes where the licence plate bracket would be mounted and bolted with stainless bolts and nylock nuts. Looks good and is very rigid

Ya so the guy thats stealing them buys the same nuts and gets the key, their not different like wheel locks....which are crap in their own right, can get them off with a regular socket.

WOW!!! you must be able to take Xray with that!!! I like it!!!LOL

lol not yet but maybe soon.

That's a few $$$$ in lights!! Wow

Yes but I have a high deductible (Commercial Insurance) and if you look at it like I do they pay for themselves really quickly.
Every time I avoid an animal or whatever on the road because of the lights that is my deductible saved.
