Good thread ... anyone considered stainless bolts . they would not rust.

Long bolt method,
As for crushing the frame, could you use a large washer or square piece of steel to help move the force out to the vertical sides of the tube.

Can you get grade 5 (or metric equiv.) in stainless? Pretty spendy I bet.

FYI
Grade 2, 1/4-3/4 dia. 74,000 Tensile
Grade 5, 1/4-1 dia. 120,000 Tensile
Grade 8, 1/4 -1 1/2 dia. 150,000 Tensile

18-8 Stainless 1/4-5/8 dia. 100,000 to 125,000 tensile

Commonally as bolt dia. increase tensile value goes down

Today from local hardware I purchased 5/16-18 x 1 1/4 " 18-8 stainless $.50 ea (I used them on the steps)

question ...

if it takes 75-100 ft/lbs to get the nutsert to collapse, and they are supposed to be torqued at 55 ft/lbs, are you risking tearing them up during collapsing them ?

reason I ask is this, one of mine got stripped out. I wasn't paying attention and the torque wrench was at 75 instead of 55.

Are the factory ones collapsed ? Or only welded in ?

I do have a question, though...were the inserts you got from Jeep steel? Did it require an ungodly amount of force to install them? I was thinking about getting some 3/8" steel nut inserts, but I wondered if I could realistically install them with hand tools.


thanks for the tip!

You just need to know the thickness of the frame.
If its less than 5.1mm use this number 95105A208 $10.67 for 10
If it is between 5.1 and 8.9 use this number 95105A209 $11.64 for 10

Not sure if these are the same as what you get from the dealership but maybe someone can check it out.

They also have them for 1/2" for older TJs
anyone try these from mcmaster?
