    Skid Plate Nutserts Replacement~

    Ordered a complete kit from Black Magic Brakes; they sell them in singles and full kits for 87 through 02 Wranglers. Their parts are much cheaper than purchasing from a Jeep dealer, I highly recommend!

    http://www.shop.blackmagicbrakes.com...ep-TJ_c107.htm

    Their site has easy to follow, illustrated instructions, so I will not post the steps I followed.

    Instructions:
    http://www.justaddrocks.com/Nutsert_Instructions.htm

    Using a flapper wheel, I ground down the old nutcerts, fished a magnet pick up thingy through the frame holes to remove the threaded parts of the old ones.
    Using the set tool I made (also in the instruction) torqued them in at 80 foot pound starting at 40 and increasing at 10 pound increments until I reached 80.
    Tomorrow I will tack weld them in for a solid hold.

    Took me about 4 hours, taking my time, doing it right the first time.

    Nutserts suck. I have my belly pan bolted on thru the frame with lock nuts on top.

    Redid them and they are showing, but the last pic (Framed says Attached Images) is huge and cannot be deleted?
