Stolen D Rings

Hey guys/gals, I was wondering if anyone else has had d rings taken off there jeep. I woke up the other day and knoticed that one was missing. So I went to the store and got some lock tight. Does anyone else have any other ideas to make sure this doesn't happen again? I thought about jb weld.

I would not JB weld them because if you wheel chances are sooner or later you're gonna need one of them off for some odd reason. I would go with safety wire, or a cotter pin. A thick cotter pin. I would doubt whoever took this last one carried around a multi-tool, and I would hope you have one in your jeep. A thick cotter pin that can't be taken out with your hands will do the truck I imagine. A thief normally won't take their time to mess with it if it isn't an extremely easy grab. Usually though, not all the time.

Could have also loosened itself up and fell off. Don't ask me how I know that happens.

Stick a screw driver in and turn it to make sure it's tight/ prevent someone removing them by hand. Sadly it does happen. Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum!!!

Take them off and store them in a trail box great for recovery gear, tools and spare parts. Also cuts down on theft of those things we tend to leave on after wheeling.

What I ended up doing since mine got stolen a few times. I ended up welding the end of the thread to the ring. Yes I can't take em off unless I cut the weld out. So when I go wheeling I bring a extra set of rings and just attach em to the towstrap and the welded rings. Haven't had a problem since. I did catch a kid trying to unscrew em, I just laughed and said good luck

I keep mine in a "recovery bag" in the rear of the Jeep. They don't rattle on the bumper and don't get stolen.

the ones I got from tractor supply got extremely tight after I used a screwdriver through the bolt hole. no way someone is getting them off without a very large screwdriver.
