    Just go hand tight and a quarter grunt.

    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Hey Eddie,

    Got my bolts and rings back from powercoating and was looking over your write up to prepare to do this tomorrow/saturday. Quick question, you mentioned 4 longer, silver starter bolts. I never noticed any different type of bolt when I received the hardware packets. I just lined them up and none of them seem to be longer than others. Were your starter bolts noticeably longer?

    On the TR website it describes the hardware package as but if the starter bolts is something you recommend to make the job easier I wanted to confirm..any tricks and tips to make it easier.

    Parts included: example is HD17
    1) Wheel
    2) Aluminum Clamp Ring
    3) 24 ea. 1-1/4” 5/16” grade 8 bolts
    4) 24 ea. Plated 5/16” Washers
    5) 1 ea. Valve stem

    Thanks!

    Yup, they were noticeably longer. I should note, I included that info because it was on their instructions but I didn't think they were really needed. Probably depends on the tire you're working with.

    Interesting! There isn’t a single bolt that looks an ounce longer than any other haha! I’m working with 40-13.5 Trail Grapplers which don’t require The spacer so I think I should be good.

    Oh yeah, I'm sure you'll be fine without them.

    This is correct...in my business, most torque values are in inch/lbs, and all fasteners are lubricated with specific lubricants...with no allowance for variation due to viscosity differences.

    On another note...all analog torque wrenches are completely inaccurate for the first 20% span of scale...in other words, a 0-100 ft/lb torque wrench is not accurate for the first 20 ft/lbs...you cannot use the same torque wrench you tighten lugs nuts with that you do bead lock rim bolts...

    Ive seen some recommendations to use anti-seize on the bolts. Is this a recommendation?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
