Body Mount Blues
Wrong size? Fix? just received My body bushings from 4WD hdwr for my 77 CJ 7. Catalog says fits 79 to 80 something but the "fitment checker" on the website says they should work. They are rubber bushings from Crown. It would appear that the holes on the 77 frame are smaller than in later years as they fit an 82 frame ok. I could not find rubber bushings for that year specifically . Not that they don't exist. My Question is ...Should I return the bushings, or can someone give me an idea as to how to enlarge the mounting holes. It would appear that I Have 1"n eighth holes and need 1"n quarter. I don't have an 1"n quarter drill bit nor do I wish to buy one to ream out a few holes. How would I use a hole saw to do this as I have noplace for a pilot hole? Or can someone point me to the correct bushings and I will hassle with returning the ones that don't fit. Thanks.
All it takes is time and money
