    Default Hi-Lift mount

    I have a Tuff Stuff hood mount for my Hi-Lift along with Optonics lights on it. The original bolts that come with it rattle off when wheelin. And to make them stay I'd have to tighten them so tight, I wouldn't be able to get it off w/o tools. So any one got any suggestions on how to keep it on the bar w/o having to use tools to remove bolts?

    That kit should have lock washers for under the wing nuts. I have never had an issue with mine yet

    It may not be too mad that you have to use tools to get it off. At least you know that no one will be stealing it.

    Use liquid thread lock as well as teflon tape is it's that bad. What size HiLift do you have, and does it flex your hood alot when you are off road?

    I have a 5' hi-lift on the hood of my jeep. Moved it there after I got frustrated on getting into the back. I don't have any issues and have had it there for about three months. I do have an older jeep though, don't know about the TJ hoods.
