Me, I'm going to read the manual and if there is no call out that specifies replacement, I'm going to re-use, provided that the item is in satisfactory condition.
yeah I will choose to listen to newer instructions every time. If you read you will see others feel the same way I do. Other well known and respected members of the forum too. I am willing to bet the 90% of the people on here with nice properly built rigs will agree ubolts are not a reusable item. Let's use head bolts for an example some fsm's say you can use them a second time. Most fsm's say not to reuse them. You will notice all after market companies call for replacement. I guess you missed the pattern before. You want to reuse yours go ahead. It's your jeep not mine. I do however feel bad for any passengers that unknowingly ride in your jeep. I don't want to muck the ops thread up anymore than we already have. We disagree and neither of us are changing our minds. Happy Jeepin

Now that that will never be settled, can we get back on topic?

Factory service manuals are for factory parts. You change the dynamic of the vehicle when you modify it. I wouldn't take an arguement seriously when it is opposed to someone defending rough country in their signature.

Get. New. Ubolts.

As with U-bolts, the factory manual is clear on the re-use of head bolts.

I agree, though, it seems that we should agree to disagree.
