Theft

I noticed the other day my front skid plate sitting a little funny on my truck. I checked it out tonight and all but one bout was removed, scratches suggest pliers. They are stock skids sprayed with bed liner to cover some scratches. Are there special bolts to prevent this craziness?

Has anyone else have things stolen off their truck?

There are security head fastners of all types and grades however, since you said it appears they used pliers perhaps you would look at a pan or rounded head type of security head. You may want to consider using loctite also to reinstall them be sure to choose the right one though LOL you don't want to have to use a plasma cutter or torch to get them out later.

Just a few suppliers.
