    A dude in my apt complex came up to me and told me someone hacked his light at off the front of his Jeep Compass.

    His choice of vehicles aside, he also just used regular hex bolts on universal brackets attached to his front license plate. Easy pickins’

    still got me thinking: if they really want it, they will get it. But that doesn’t mean I have to make it easy on them. LoL

    Added “tamper” proof bolts to my ditch lights. Pretty sure anyone can pick up the right tool to get them off but anyone scouting parking lots for targets of opportunities may have a bit of difficulty. Plus they are low enough on the brackets that one has to take the pod off the brackets to get to the hood mount bolts.

    Always wondered why ditch light retailers don’t develop/research more effective methods of securing outboard lighting.

    Thankfully the grille bar is deep in there and ain’t no one getting at that bad boy. Lol

    How is that cable for the wireless phone mount routed? I have a Dashboard Single Mount from them and I was interested in a QI charger for it. Can you link that charger by chance?

    The full DMM has a couple notches in it to route cables. I've got a add a fuse style micro USB extension that I'm running up to the charger and the charger is the Scosche magic mount. Before this mount I actually ran the cable out one of my vents which was pretty clean if your single mount doesn't have one of the cable cut outs.

    After further research, I was wondering how you modified that Scosche magic mount to be able to mount on a DMM. Also, which mount option did you buy for the magic mount?

    Let me do a little digging on this one.

    Okay, so this is the exact one that I ordered. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CXV4RXQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_MKOfFbHAPC1QM

    Then I paired it with these: https://www.arkon.com/product/SP-SBH-KIT-1B-adapter-for-xm-scosche-bracketron.html

    https://www.arkon.com/product/SP25MM17-25mm-ball-17mm-ball-adapter.html

    I think that arkon also makes a direct single t slot to 1 inch ball adapter that you could also use.

    Cali-raised light bar and TRD Pro grill. Raptor light kit. Rock lights.
    Installed the OEM power tailgate opener. Instructions were pretty good, you just have to take your time. The sound is not very noticeable.
