|nmdriver||I had one on a cherokee for years and never had issues but then again we tack welded the nuts. A grinder will get through it but it was pretty hard to get to and most thieves want something fast to steal.|

Don't know anybody that's had their winch lifted. I figure it's too labor intensive and time consuming to try to remove them. Most dirtbags are looking for the quick easy grab. But I could see it happen if you're parked in a dark, remote area.

|pkmcd99||Not sure on the theft average, but if they want it, its theres. Grinders go through any bolt head in seconds|

|Q_The_Cop||It's not much but this was my way of thinking. I used the original Torx head bolts to mount my winch on my bumper, not the new regular bolts that came with it. Not many people carry a Torx bit set around with them. (probably not true, but it makes me feel a little better!). LOL!|

Do winches get stolen often?
I haven't had a winch since my 77 CJ and I'm looking at a Superwinch or maybe a Warn for my 2012 JKU. My question is do guys get ripped off often? I park my JK outside and park at the airport I was wondering if I should look at tack welding the mounting bolt nuts. Any theft prevention ideas other than the obvious of big dogs or Glocks?
Anybody had a bolted down winch stolen?
