    Rear body mount nut

    I was trying to mount my Evo sliders and I broke the weld on the rear body mount nut. The bolt spins freely, and maybe got one or two turns before it broke free. Has this happened to anyone? Can I access the nut from inside the cab by removing the seat and plastic?

    I did it while installing Evo bombers on the JT. I just pulled the bolt out too far and flipped the nut in the frame. It’s actually a flag nut... not welded. I was able to reach it after pulling that black cylinder looking thing and got it back into place. Sorry my nomenclature isn’t the best. You’ll know what I mean when you see it.

    Bolt is still in place and can’t remove the canister. I guess it sheared the sheet metal or broke the tang off the nut. How important is installing the rear, since it is detached from the bombers? I also have the rockskins installed.

    I snapped one of mine off cleanly, didn’t come loose. Just left it like that.

    Wow that sucks!! Seems like the sliders are stout enough without that rear bolt.

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.
