you need to get yourself some basic sets of tools, standard and metric sockets and wrenches. kinda mandatory.

I guess what I'm wanting to know is if I get a nutsert tool will it work on the nutserts that go in the frame and the smaller nutserts that are used to hold the rock guards that go in the body?

are you asking about the nutsert fastener tool itself or just the nutsert?

the tool itself should work with most any nutsert.

as far as what size nutsert you need, i have no idea. i didnt really think that they would be that strong to be used as something to fasten steps.

this is what you are talking about right?

if you have the tool, you can usually tighten them up again. if that doesnt work however, you will need to pull the old one out and insert a new one.

thats good to know that nutserts are strong enough to hold up to the uses of side steps.
