    Looked good to me, just one thing, I find when drilling through metal and starting to break through, if you can go to the other side and drill, it won't catch because you have the pilot hole to guide your bit. John

    Very nice video. When I installed mine, I set it in the bucket and clamped it in. I used the mounting brackets on the bar as a drill guide to go through the bucket. You might want to put on another nut on your mounting bolts to protect the threads so as to make removal and reinstallation easier w/o having to contend with damaged or mud caked threads.

    Why not put the bolt head inside the bucket? Would seem to reduce the probability of thread damage with the exposed bolt threads outside the bucket?

    Ralph beat me to it!
    Also, put TWO nuts on, so the threads are protected, and it will be easier to take it off.

    It is better to have the head inside the bucket especially if working rock. Threads outside the bucket if not protected can get just as beat up. All it takes is scraping against one rock so they should also be double nutted no matter.

    Good point! And nuts are cheap, especially when compared to the work involved in using a hack saw or cold chisel.

    I'm gonna' find a couple nuts to add to my toothbar bolts!

    I thought about that but the way I was thinking (which doesn't make it right) was the material inside the bucket is already broken up and wont be as hard packed to mess the threads ups.

    But I do like the idea of adding another nut on the end to help keep threads clean
