    Hinge Inserts

    Would anyone happen to have their factory hinge inserts/bushings laying around? Managed to lose mine over the winter and my die-tech mirror mounts and foot pegs don’t fit into the delrin ones. Figure they’re small and light could just go in an envelope with stamp. To order them is an absurd 13$/piece

    I have one if you want it. Thought I’d kept all 8, but only one.

    Someone has a good one laying around? I couldn't get those things out on purpose without them getting damaged.

    I said I had one. Didn’t say anything about it being good.

    I tapped all of mine out with almost no effort last week...then threw them in the garbage. They were chewed up from my trail doors and not usable. Good luck with your hunt!

    Get replacement ones from TMR customs. They are the last inserts you will need. I installed mine maybe 4 years ago now and my doors come off like they are brand new to this day.

    I'm assuming the mirror and foot peg are too large to fit into the derlin ones. Why not just grind them down so they fit.

    Yeah just too tight a fit to be practical. I was thinking of doing this also but saving the old ones had worked til I lost them. That’s what I get for cleaning and organizing everything lol

    I’m sure you’ll find them. You just put them somewhere where you would remember them. That’s where all the stuff that I lose is.

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.
