TJ Instatrunk in YJ - install questions

Just wondering what folks have done to secure the TJ instatrunk in a YJ? It appears to fit rather well, but obviously the YJ doesn't have the holes in the body to secure via the supplied thumbscrews. I was thinking maybe installing nutserts into the sidewalls. Any other ideas, other than securing with sheet-metal screws?

Thanks in advance!

You can drill and use a bolt and nut if the bolt will come through into the access space behind the tail lights.
