Bad news: Rivnut no longer makes these.

Good news: They are available under the Rivkle name. #2334-110-035. Page 19 of this catalog.

Bad news: 500 minimum order.

I’m still looking for another source as time allows.

And more Good News/Bad News:

Bad News: it’s trying to snow again.

Good News: I checked out the Fuel Tank Skid plates again and it doesn’t really look that bad to do.

Bad News: it takes 3 more of these same size Rivnuts for each side for a total of 9 needed.

Good News:
The least that I can buy is 50@ 130.50 ($2.61 ea) or I can front this deal and sell bags of 10 for $13.00 + shipping. Any takers? Let me know. Yes, you can also tell the people at JP, they can find me on their website, too, same name.

We are not supposed to have Group Buys or sell stuff in the Tech Forums so this is checking on INTREST ONLY!

hey "Gramps", don't be spending the $130 just yet. i may be on to something and i should know either today or tomorrow if they'll work.

....."Film at 11"


AND on a related note, i've got PN's and prices for the plastic shields that go on the sides of the Engine/Trans Skid Plate to keep 'stuff' from splashing up on the drive belts and trans. i'm confirming them today as well and will post that info along with pics tonight when i get home, but after dinner of course! first things first......

I'm in no panic to spend too much on fasteners! I'll wait and see what you guys come up with and I still need to check out the body shop place. I saw you and hvac59 talking about those shields on JP.

you are correct with those part numbers, and my suggestion is to BUY THEM NOW while they are dirt cheap. once Mopar realizes they have made a mistake with the pricing, it WILL be corrected.

again, the part numbers and prices of the two side shields for the Engine/Trans Skid Plate:

5116330AB.."transmission shield" $2.45!!!
5116057AB...."accessory drive shield" $7.35!!!! and these are the LIST PRICES!

sorry, no pics....forgot my camera this AM. but i did see that they attach first, and THEN the Skid Plate goes over the edges of them. i hope to not forget my brain tomorrow and get the pics. either that or remember to bring home my shields.......

Are these splash shields different than what I already have? They look about the same.

Here is a pic of one of the hex holes on the Compass for the Fuel tank Skid Plate and on the FD II.

INTERESTING.....they ARE the same as the ones on your COMPASS. does the Patriot have a different setup? just wonder if the Patriots without the FDII have the 'one piece' plastic shield and the Compass' have these '3 pieces'.

"hvac" (?) had to 'cut off' the sides of his shield to have 'side shields'....could this be the difference? maybe we Compass owners don't NEED these additional parts....just remove the center plastic shield and replace it with the Skid Plate.

hey, Patriot owners, does the bottom of YOURS look different from "Gramps" Compass?

i believe so. looks to me that they fit further back, more towards the floor pan. but again, i have yet to get MINE 'up in the air' to see for myself.

thanks to "hvac59" and "Gramps" and their pics, i've seen more of the bottom sides of MK's than i have in person.....

Mine never had the Center Shield, just the 2 side shields, from the factory.

I got a million of them, both Compass and Patriot FD II. The only problem is when I took them I didn't know what I would need pictures of....

My Compass'es original front plastic skid plate was in one piece:

As my non-original skid plate was too narrow and the dust/sand etc would have got in from the sides,
the installer-man cut off the center of the original plastic skid plate
and did leave only the sides as they were (like on the Gramps'es first photo).
Then he installed the new skid plate on top of them.

It looks like we have some variations on the lower shields, either a 1 piece or a 2 piece with or without center plastic or skid plate. Fascinating!

I still wonder what the factory used on the engine skid plate in the center and 3 rear holes to screw the bolts into? With the parts books being so lean on information we may not know unless someone with an FD II takes the time to pull theirs down and take a look.

riv-nuts

Just poking around here. I have a 98 xj. But my car is a 02 jetta tdi. I installed an aluminum skid from diesel geeks. It included the needed large riv-nuts (And a simple install tool). See if you can contact them and buy a small bag from them or get info on there supplier.

If you end up buying a large quantity post it. I'll buy a bag of 10 for $13. These things are darn handy for other things too. I bought a kit from harbor freight that has small rivet nuts, works great for adding thread to thin metal plastic etc.

These Rivnuts are for a 13mm (+.01/-0) HEX hole stamped in the sheet metal not the more common round ones that could be used by just drilling a hole. The clinch range is 1 - 3.5mm (.0395 - .1378"), the MK sheet metal is about .050 or so, or at least within range. I don't want anybody thinking that these are something else.
