Get a bigger impact wrench and tighten that sucker down really good. I don't foresee any catastrophic failure at all there. You should have grade 8 hardware there. Gotta get up pretty early in the morning to shear it....well, unless you're Arlo

Worst case, you might have to throw a skinny washer in there to take up some slop.

Yeah I sanded it first but it was already black, not sure what kind of a difference yours being chrome would make. I just used a can of black spray paint. I used rocker guard for my push bar and on the wood grain trip on the dash and that turned out really good too so you might want to look into that.

EDIT: squazz, its angry cause I cant drive/wheel it!

So what size wrench did you use to get that light off?
What were the prices in your efforts of pricing?


You went a little overboard on the tech, dont you think?

Almost got arrested in it because of a Dick cop in my small town said it was unsafe, because it had a loud exhaust, blacked out tails, and no front bumper.

That doesn't sound like an arrestable situation. He was probably just running his mouth, you get a fix it ticket?

Nope he followed me home and said next time I see u driving with out it fixed I'm forcing an inspection then bringing u to county.

So my girlfriends mom just came to pick us up to bring us out to dinner and see that Dick has another jeep pulled over, but this was just a stock xj. I have a zj with a 4" lift and 31/11.5 swampers.

I think he is just pissed he doesn't have a jeep.
