Aircruiser, how much would you want for the sliders if you'd be willing to sell them separately from the Jeep?

Everything is for sale for the right price! I paid I think $300 for them new and they have literally never been used. Not a scratch on them.

Did and oil and filter change today

6.25 qts of Pennzoil 10w30


I also installed my CURT Class III Hitch - 2" Receiver today as well. I got 4 out of the 6 bolts on. Where the nuts are welded on the inside of the frame, I couldn't both bolts to go in. One bolt from the PO was broken off inside the nut, and the other goes in maybe 1/2 way, then gets REALLY tight and stops. So I am not sure if another bolt in broken off inside the nut.

Can those be drilled out if possible?

Try chasing the threads with a Tap. The broken off one is most likely there for good.

Just step drill into the broken bolt till your using a bit about the size of the bolt and tap it as if it were any regular hole. The tap us either going to move the remaining bits of bolt, or you tap into the bolt. Either way you're adding security to your receiver.

Try an easy out first though... And make sure you swear a lot

Be careful. Put much force on them and I've had them break free inside the frame, then your out whatever tool you are using.

Swearing always helps. It may not make the job easier, but it always makes me feel better.
