The lead on the ends of the threads is a good idea.
I found longer OEM type studs at NAPA for the front end. I think they were made by Dorman.

Thanks Keith. I checked at my local Napa store but they didn't have what I wanted and he tried to look some up but that didn't turn anything up either. I ordered mine from Moser. I was very impressed with the quality too, especially after chucking them in the lathe and how true they turned.

How is that replacemnt stud going to work? I am still looking for longer studs for my CJ-7 but have been unable to find any. I spent about an hour on the phone with one of the manufactures a while back and he went over their entier inventory and was unable to help me. I guess I was just not lucky that day. It was my understanding that the knurl presses in the hub and the shoulder centeres the rotor. It does not look like the knurl is long enough to press into the rotor.

How did you hold the stud while in was in the lathe? Did you use a couple of jam nuts and grip the hex? I need to grab some all-thread for a project and plan on using a coupler nut and a jam nut so I can turn the rod down. I do not really like the idea of grabbing the all-thread in my $1500.00 chuck.

Thanks

I tried finding some studs that were the same diameter but longer with no luck so I ordered some with the correct thread size and a slightly larger knurl. I plan to drill the hub out to make these work.

I think something like this as a good permanent electrical hookup would be good to have too. https://www.etrailer.com/Wiring/Hopkins/HM48470.html It could be mounted flush in the bumper.
I like this, I too hate the trailer harness hanging around.

Funny how those thing always find the hottest thing to lay against then they fall out.

This is the stud I used https://www.moserengineering.com/1-2...-press-in.item
The knurl catches both the rotor and hub. Not by much but where can anything go after it's all tight. I drilled the holes out with a 43/64th drill and used a 1/2-20 nut and thick washer to pull them into place with my impact. When I held them in the lathe I took some 7/8" diameter stock 1 1/2" long and tapped it through 1/2-20. Just chuck that stock in the lathe and put it in low gear then grab the head of the stud with some pliers and turn it in. Then chuck the works in the lathe and do the machining.

Mine are all in and I doubt I ever have any problems. Put some anti-sieze on the threads and that washer too by the way.

Thank you for showing me how you held the studs.

I found these when I was searching. They are not exact but probably would work.

https://www.ihpartsamerica.com/store...RT-LG-SET.html

I currently am using extended lug nuts.

They work, but I would rather have longer studs installed.
