I also did the Center Dash surround in a Silver to go along with the Black and Silver look. I was inspired by either someone on this Forum or another Jeep Forum who had done their's in Red (Red/Black theme). Next project either Iggee's or Marathon Seat Covers. Any opinions?
I may do this in the spring. Frozen paint and snow, not a great combo lolz

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.
I thought you were supposed to use two wrenches? Is it cheating to use an impact wrench?

The problem I had was that I couldn't get the star washer to effectively hold the nutsert from spinning as we cranked the bolt down. We used the channel locks on the rim of the nutsert until it finally had enough pressure to hold itself.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

I don't consider it cheating and neither would you if you sold them. That way you get to sell more to the same guy.

I've found through some experimenting that a big C-clamp and an open end wrench work the best after you make a good setting tool.

Take the setting tool with the nutserts on it and hold it in the frame with the open end wrench. Clamp the wrench to the frame and it will hold the nutserts in tightly and stop the nut from turning.

I don't use the serrated washer. I take a 9/16's fine thread nut and cut a series of small shallow slots with a cut off wheel so it looks like you were marking the hour marks on a clock face. Just a series of small cuts around one side of the nut. That goes against the nutserts and the sharp edges from the cuts stop the nutserts from spinning. I use a 1/2" hardened grade 8 washer on top of that with some anti-seize on the part under the head of the bolt but not on the nut side.

A ratcheting breaker works very well and the initial upset force is not as high as folks would have you believe. The tendency is to over tighten which stresses the threads in the insert, so once it starts setting, just snug it down.
