nuts for the add-a-trunk

Sorry... hard to decide which forum this applies to, but I suppose here is as good as anything.

I am looking for help tracking down the nuts that attach to the wheelwall in the TJ that allow for the installation of the Mopar add-a-trunk. I bought it used and I only received the screws since the nuts are not removable. There used to be a guy on ebay that sold the screws and nuts but I can't find him. Does anyone happen to know an official name for these or a part number if there is? Thanks!

They're called Wellnuts. Here's what they look like
You can get them at any hardware store for a couple cents each. I don't remember which size you need, but I remember they were cheap enough that I bought 4 in about 4 different sizes.
You insert them into the holes, the screw catches the brass insert and pulls it back, mushrooming the rubber sleeve and effectively clamping it from the back side.
Hope this helps!

Hex shaped? The ones I used are like the ones in the pic I linked.

OK... just wondering because the pre-drilled holes in my jeep are hex shaped. And the guy that used to sell them on ebay actually sold hex shaped nuts.
