    Since the late Pelfreybilt bumper's hoop doesn't have mounting tabs for lights, I used a cushioned P-clamp to mount the dovetail shoe for my trail camera:

    Seems like that's fastened a little bit too well. How long does it take to undo 3 different Velcro straps?

    1.5 sec :notsure:

    Any vehicle mount is a compromise between quick access and security. Wouldn't want a 4-lb metal cylinder as a projectile in the interior either. The one I got was intended for Jeep roll bars: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B018TXAE5A/ I basically cut the straps on the back and bolted it to the mounting plate with three screws and fender washers.

    I didn't want a metal latch digging into the passenger's ankles, either.

    Man, I understand that. I had about $25k of tools stolen after Katrina from my flooded house.... I so freakin hate thieves.... It is amazing how much you accumulate in tools and cost over time. I had more at work that survived the thieving MF'ers during that stressful time of life...

    I figured out some of my new system i have on my radio. Pretty cool. My radio had this system downloaded on it when I ordered it. Then just had to buy a Bluetooth ELM 327 Kit. Records all data. Also can measure mpg and distance to empty. Measure all my temps. Like exhaust,engine coolant and stuff. Has a ton of other things to like it can tell you what your 1/4 mile and 0-60 is. Still trying to figure what some of it even is. Will also do an engine scan on codes and etc. Pretty cool.20181015_194618.jpg

    Can't find the original one I bought. I paid like 290 for mine. But this one is the same but this one has an adjustable view instead of being one piece like mine.

    I notched my front of the shrouds to mount to switchbacks flush too! Gotta run the wires out and epoxy the shrouds on! After I secure the wires that hold on the switch backs

    10-4 0n that I have a Friend that is doing a life sentence because he killed a guy who was steeling his tools. The Judge said "They were only tools"

    I probably have at least three sets of everything. 6pt 12pt etc. 1inch drive on down. air tools included. When I retired I brought my tools home on a flatbed wrecker. And still pay the insurance bill on them every 6 months.
