If you go to napa they have a set of Torx sockets that are only like 15 or 20 bucks I think. They are not the best quality and you have to be careful not to snap them off but they'll do the job in a pinch.

Ended up bed lining (didn't get any pictures but its very simple) the fender flares, took off the front flares the rear didn't want to come off so I did em right on the jeep. For now tho I need to save up to tend to some frame rust problems above the rear driver lower control arm... It's pretty bad and noticing it this late bothers me.

they all rust there. Rust from inside out so poke away with a hammer and see how bad it is. I had to replace a section of frame on mine when the lower control arm snapped off.

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's getting close to rusting threw to where the control arm mounts... I might have to do that same as you, if you don't mind me asking how much did it cost you to replace that section?
