Well, it finally happened to me. I was trying to remove my skid plate so I could install my brand new exhaust and 2 of the 3 nutserts on each side are toast. I was able to get a sawzall in between the frame and skid to cut 3 of them off, but the 4th I'm trying to grind down the bolt since I can't fit the sawzall in there. Sucks. I've had that skid off 3x in the last 2 years with no problems. Bad stuff happens fast I guess.

I called the local 4x4 shop to see if they could do nutserts so I can get her back on the road today, but they are booked 3-4 weeks and told me it'd be $200. I think I'll do this one myself. I'll be ordering the nutserts from BMB today.

The good part is as soon as my batteries on the sawzall are recharged, I can cut the last exhaust bolt and at least have that done. I have just enough room with the passenger side of the skid hanging down to get in there.

Just so happens mine are for a '00. Had to replace them on my wife's TJ.


Pm me if you're interested in buying my sloppy seconds.

I appreciate the offer. I think I'm just going to go ahead and replace all 6 though. I figure the last two can't be far behind. $33 isn't too bad of a price for 6 of them from Blaine.

Exhaust is done! Sounds great! Can't drive it though

I'm not looking forward to it. Especially with the weather getting colder now.

Word to the wise if you go the bolt w/spacer install method, use a long enough bolt that you can get a pair of BIG vice grips on It. I used too short a bolt and could only grip it with a pair of channel locks with narrower jaws.

Made for a real PITA install.


There is a thread on here that explains how too get the old ones out fairly easily and I can vouch for the info. Removal was fairly painless.
