Hi Rob.

Currently, 4th hole from the front, or if your a little goofy like me, 2nd hole from the back.

That's a good description of what I had to do also with the exception of the large ball of welding slag in the passenger side tube.

Well I stand corrected. I didn't think they would shrink that much. Next time I'll have to try that, thanks for the tip.

I don't think plastics will shrink significantly..... Metals will.

06WranglerX I used a wood maul with a large flat side, and a piece of oak larger then the bushing, it takes a few good wacks.

Savvy Marco,

glockster Just did this last night. Had to get the die grinder out to remove a couple of welds from inside the frame tube. Then had to do a little relieving of the bushings. I used a 5lb hammer and there was no way they were going in without some massaging. My bigger problem was the Body Armor front bumper covering the tube. What a PITA.
