So until the last days of February / first week of March, I'll have to be easy on the driving, only for it's strictly required and low speed.

I'll post pictures when I finally get the parts and hands down to it....

Timken Hubs, and Raybestos "Performance" rotors....

Regards,
At the end, and after giving some thought, I ended up, ordering the rear rotors, so I complete de set of new "performance" rotors, and at the end in the last two years, I would end the process of renewing the hole brake system... ( including parking brake lever [ with the airbags nightmare ], and parking brake cables );...

One month for the parts to arrive...

Chereveco another option is to cut the rusted section and replace it with new metal, and a new nut , clean the insides of the "chassis", maybe protect it with some anti rust, etc... the thing is, that's a bigger work to perform.... lots of care, as you said taking care of things that could catch fire..., inside de cockpit or underneath; but at the end it could be easier than fighting out the broken screw, which may leave the chasis thread damaged at the end...

Don’t have a torch. If I did get one, I’d be a little worried about melting or burning things in the vicinity or above it, because I haven’t got any experience using a torch.

lfhoward It only sticks out about 1/16Ē. I canít get a set of locking plyers to grab on to it... and there is no rear access. It sticks out enough that I can tap it with a hammer and maybe break up some of the rust holding the threads in place. Iím hoping the drilling makes it hot enough to break it free also.

Libertyjeep2012 Frame nuts suck. Broke one when installing a hitch and had to have it the hitch welded as a support frame attached to it. Attempted 12 hours of drilling and an easy out. Can you get to the back of it at all? If. It your in for a ride to fix it. Is there any access holes you can fish a nut through? All the rest of my frame nuts looked good but still needed taps ran through them a few tines.

lfhoward About to try and drill out a rusty broken bolt in the frame rail.



This broke off when removing my rock sliders for powder coating. Now theyíre done and Iíd like to get them back on. This time I have stainless hardware.

I have a set of cobalt reverse drill bits for this grade 8 bolt. I also have an easy-out, though I hesitate to use it for fear it breaks off in the hole. Does anyone have any tips for drilling out rusted bolts like this. Lots of WD-40, obviously.

Light bar/reverse light pods may be at Santa’s workshop...
Finally got the ATH roof rack installed! It is extremely stable and well made. Very happy with it.



Really like that rack!
