WJ T Skid: Nutsert Q

So I just installed my skid plate, and after collapsing the 1st nutsert I noticed that the nutsert I was handed was the smaller flanged one that comes with the tool.

There are two larger flanged nutserts that come with the skid, would it be bad to use the smaller flanged one? It already collapsed and is all the way in there so I don't see how I can get it out... Its the rear most hole on the frame rail.

The skid seems to hold on just fine, but I haven't tested it yet offroad.

Fastenal.

Actually, I have a pack that I ordered when I got my T-Case. I ended up not using them because I borrowed a nutsert tool at work and used SAE nutserts that fit the hole just fine. If you don't have a fastenal near you, I'll sell you these ones. PM me if you're interested.
