looks like you've all had problems with the tail gate hinges. just drill the head off of the bolt and remove the hinge and twist it out with vice grips?

what size bit is best for that? looks like something im going to have to compete with when i get my Savvy's

Yea, they suck. The first two came out nicely, the next six required a 5/16 drill bit to drill out. You'll know when you've gotten through the head, they sort of make a crack/pop noise when it seperates and then the head stays on the drill bit.

With a good sharp bit and some used motor oil, it's a breeze. Use a cheap bit and you'll be at it all day. (ask me how I know)

The 17/32 bit is only for the spots that need nutserts, I used the 5/16 on all of the other mounting spots... Same 5/16 bit that I used to remove the heads from the stripped torx bit.

I feel bad for you guys. I had no problems at all with mine.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Yea, I've been going to town with that 5/16 bit...and I used a 1/2 to enlarge the other ones while I wait for my girlfriend to get home so I can go get a 17/32. So I'm close, but not quite there lol

one more question, the bottom tailgate hinge had a bracket on the backside...Am I supposed to re-use that or am I going to get some flange nuts when Gerald send the longer bolts?

Gotta love corrosion. The studs twisted out by hand, which is kinda funny.

And just so everyone knows, I almost ordered replacement bolts from the dealership until I read that I'm supposed to get some included with the corners...they are $3.25 a peice from the dealership.

If you are talking about the 2 brackets with the threaded holes that fit flush inside the tub behind the tub side of the hinges, yes you reuse those. I don't think there were enough Flange nuts included to replace

The top one you should be able to reach from inside the rig along the back corner (I had to move the carpet)

Yea the top one is securely attatched using rhinoliner. The bottom one fell out, and I cannot get the studs out of it. I may just pick up a few extra flange nuts from Home Depot or something. I think that's all the questions I had, I think it is funny that you make the jokes about how it'll take you three weeks and 6 sets of instructions to finish a project...That's how I feel right now

I had to put the bracket in my vice and use vice grips on the stud and was able to get the bolt out... but I also didn't have much rust or anything to deal with. Was just a stripped torx (although I did shatter two T40 socket bit things).

My T40 held up pretty nicely...But the salty winters here in Ohio did a number on that bracket. Doesn't help that I run without the inner wheel well.

Wade, if you pop your head in here again please tell me where you got a 17/32 drill bit at. Home Depot and Sears don't have it...
