Ok so sat up last night thinking about the situation and decided to go ahead and order new blind nuts to replace those that are spinning and do this right once.
So I head to the shop put some Kroil on the rusted frame side rear track bolt and proceeded to install the front track bar with no problems. Removed the remaining fender flares and installed the RR pocket flares with the fasteners that were reusable.
That took a few hours as I listened the the Packer game on the radio. Had everything done that I started on Saturday except the rear track bar. After the Kroil sat for a while, apparently not long enough as the bolt and sleeve were still mated. Lucky for me I came prepared with a plan B! Sawzall and got the blade between the TB and the inside of the frame mounting point and began sawing away. Things seemed to be going along quite well and it was easy to get to. I started sawing the head end of the bolt first and was about 1/2 way thru when bang! the TB jumped a bit and I thought WTF! Got my light in there and saw the rear mounting hole tore open! My blade had wondered off track and started cutting the frame mount until it got thin enough to fail!
So now I sit with a F'd up frame mount for the rear track bar and beating my head against the wall!
Has anyone ever tore a frame side TB mount? If so how did you repair it?
Remind me again why we love these Jeeps so much?
