Not good!

My son and I are restoring a 97 TJ for him, long story short we Planed on replacing all the body hardware since most was the better part of destroyed removing it.
Well Just got the computer to order them and it seems I cant find anyone that offers stainless hardware for a tj!
Ay ideas?

I'd check Summit and/or Jeg's. They seem to have a stainless kit for nearly everything.


and of course, Quadratec has some stuff, but probably not exactly what you are looking for.

I assume you are looking for all new bolts and screws for the entire Jeep like you can buy for YJ'S? I had the same problem on my 97 when I rebuilt it and could not find a set anywhere. I ended up going to Eastwood.com and buying their vibratory tumbler. I ran my rusty, ugly bolts through this demon and they come out looking like new. A little bit of work as the threads come out a little clogged with dust but bolts looked like new!

As I do repairs/maintenance, I try to replace the old stuff with stainless, standard size, We have a great old fashioned hardware store about 15 miles away, if it's not on the shelf, they can have it in 3 days..

Looks like this guy beat me to it. I was gonna say to check for a local fastener store. I jsut found one, and they've got everything! Also, it would help to know all of the bolt/nut/whatever sizes, write them down, and use that as a shopping list if you can't find a good kit anywhere.

I have checked with quadratech, and totally stainless their supplier. They do not make a kit for the tj. I found some sizes at the local hardware. so thats the way Im gonna go. I will keep track of the sizes and share it as a post here in case somebodyelse needs em. I would clean these up and reuse em only have were destroyed and keeping paint on them during reasslembly would suck!
Thanx for the input!

That'd be cool. If you could post a list of parts and sizes, one of the mods might be able to sticky it for future reference.
