It depends on the size of nutsert you are using. Then you match the bolt to the nutsert (only get it longer than you would need), get a couple of washers that fit the bolt, and a nut one size larger than the bolt.

And because I love pictures, here you go!

Well I sold my 4xG front skid already. The suspension skid will probably get turned into a weight sled . I still have the t-case skid along with the Asfir t-case bracket that I plan to sell. I also still have the 4xG rails that I will sell. The problem is I hate shipping large heavy items especially if I don't have the box they came in. So I try to sell stuff like this locally.

Basically yes! It is a nut that you insert into a hole and then smash into place. This way you don't have to get a wrench onto the nut on the backside. It is similar to a rivet in how it instals.

3000th post BTW!!! Woot!

I finally got a chance to check their website out the other day and it looks like their new headquarters is 15 miles away from me, haha! Maybe Kolak can swing a special deal for me when I'm ready to buy some since I won't need them to be shipped.

Are you refering to 4xG? If so their headquarter location might not matter. I believe they are still using SuperLift's manufacturing, storage, and shipping facilities which is in Louisiana I think. So unless they stock their products at their headquarters too, you will have to pay for shipping.

Darn, it must just be jeepin'byal then. Either way, that's kind of cool that a well known jeep store is close by. I have Quadratec 25 mins one way, and JBA 15 mins another way. Go PA

I got my 4xg front skid from jba when i made a visit to marlin.... i dont know if he keeps any stock there or not but he had that when i was there... if the other guy lives 15 min away he should call and see if he has it there just in case

Today I had some time so I got started on the maintenance. I started with the catch can. I empty it every oil change. This time like most it was about half full.




I also got started on the spark plugs. I only got the passenger side 8 plugs swapped out and will continue the other 8 tomorrow. Having to do 16 plugs makes me so happy I don't have to do it very often.

Oh, and this is what I like to see!!!

Champion plugs:



Mobil 1 oil:



Mopar t-case oil:



Mopar filter:
