The setting you need is in your User CP page somewhere it's called the "Default Thread Subsription" or something like that and you'll need to choose an option from the dropdown box...

Since it's a countersunk hex head bolt, where do you want the length measured from?

Overall length is 50,0mm and the length from the top of the countersink to the end of the bolt is 40,0mm.

I've received many emails about this thread and thought it could use a comparison photo that shows the difference between the commonly available generic nutsert and the OEM version.

I feel an overwhelming desire to put my two cents worth in here... I HATE NUTSERTS! Why couldnt Jeep just use a weldnut or thicken that are of the frame and drill and tap it or, or, or, or... anyhting else!!!!!! :

My RHD TJ - Savvy equipped... And loving it!

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

Not picking on you, but I'd like you to envision things from a manufacturing standpoint. You need a cost effective durable method to put threads in a rectangular tube that you only have single side access on.

A weld nut only works if you can get to the backside and apply pressure to hold it in place to resistance weld it. If you look at the front frame horns, there are weld nuts in there and you can see why. Full access to clamp and weld.

So, to satisfy your requirements, how would you do it? It is not even remotely feasible to thicken the frame and thread it, but if you could, imagine the threads where that part rusted the bolt in place and then the bolt broke off.

I realize that nutserts bother folks, but they are a god send from a manufacturing standpoint. Cost effective, very durable, replaceable if need be, and very effective from a strength perspective.

Before you pick on the durability, the fact that they rust together and fail is not the fault of the nut sert. It's the location that's the problem. Any threaded hole there will suffer the same fate.

OEMs

I got my local dealer to price match an online dealer and got the OEMs for $6. I figured that was a good deal since he eats the shipping. While the instructions by the OP are excellent, they don't mention what a giant PITA this task is! I will add a couple details to his:
1. After grinding the tack welds and drilling the 9/16 holes, remove the heads with the chisel. It just shears off.
2. In order for the nutsert to get some traction when you are trying to get it started, press it against the frame rail at a slight angle. Only do this long enough to get it started.
Again, this project sucked but is now done and I feel good about the skid plate installation. Thanks again to the OP for this info
