How do you protect your LED lights?

My jeep is usually in the garage but I need to park it outside for a few weeks. Was wondering how do you protect the LED lights for getting stolen. I was at a dealership the other day and the Moab Jeep they had out front got the LED light bar and 3" lights stolen in a matter of minutes. They got them on camera but they could not make them out.

I bought a welder and welded them on just make sure you have them in the spot you want cuz you can't move them after!

Insurance is the only way. Those locking nuts are 100% worthless, since you can just remove the mount itself and take the whole thing, including your $40 locknuts. Just have your lights insured and you'll be golden.

Wow. That's a great point.

But for real my advise would be don't worry about it. If you went through life worrying that everything u own is gonna get stolen then you will never take the time to enjoy it. My jeep has sat in Pittsburgh at night, Philly, outside in packed parking lots of football games, DC for baseball games, numerous other cities outside of metal and rock concerts, not to mention tons of walmarts and nobody has ever so much as tampered with it. (And I have two cubes sitting on top of my bull bar). They even have amber snap on covers and no one has taken those. If they do... Life goes on.

Maybe I'm just chill about things tho I'm not sure.

I was about to order those locking nuts, and then thought for a second...that it would just take 4 minutes with a torx bit to remove the mounts, and carry everything away. Insuring all your lights will probably add around $5 a month to your premium. I have all my mods (except my winch and wheels) insured through geico, and pay around $13 a month more...thats all the LED lights, bumpers, sound system, random accessories, skid plates, suspension, diff covers, etc etc.

It is insured but still sucks to have to deal with it.

That's why I love State Farm. No additional insurance is required. I just need pics or receipts

I have yet to meet a person that has successfully claimed stolen mods from statefarm. Your policy is for a factory vehicle, not one with 10K worth of extra goodies on it. Geico MUST pay for my stolen stuff because

1) They are aware of the items
2) I pay for the coverage, which is a contract.

As a business model, I don't see how they would cover a bunch of aftermarket stuff for free.
