Bet Couple bucks for plugs that you can put in the frame holes on the outside of your frame. Keeps some of the road salt and crap outta there while still having the 4 oval holes unplugged for airflow!

I had two sizes, one was a smaller plug (#7 on the right) because one of my holes was shrunk from rust expansion, but the larger size (#8 on the left) fit great in the other holes!

In your OP you mentioned the top rattled since you only had 4 of 6 nuts/bolts.
Sorry, I misread your comment about using the eye bolts.

No worries.

mikhail2400 Figured id mention this here. I recently found I needed to replace a brake caliper on my 02 TJ. Bought a remanufactured unit (with lifetime warranty) from Advance Auto parts and replaced the bad caliper. Went back to the parts store to return the old caliper and get my core charge. This went so well I decided to change the other caliper.
I paid $23.00 for the new reman caliper. I returned the old busted caliper and they gave me $32.00 for the core charge. So I spent a total of $46.00 and they gave me back $64.00. Not very often you get paid to work on your own rig.

For that matter, you can get full-on automotive screws and all kinds of auto screw/nut accessories...the hardware aisle is a Jeepers best friend!!

I put a nut all the way up to the eye, then a washer, slid it in from the bottom put on a large washer then garden hose gasket followed by a large washer and a nut. No more rattle (from that anyway). Now I can use the eyebolts for light duty hold downs. Wasn't necessary, but I used stainless steel hardware. Only change I may make is to use one of those nuts with the nylon to keep it from loosening.

I had that problem with the first one I ordered. I drilled out the opening to fit the bulb, then found out it was too damned bright!

You could call them. I've heard that they're actually quite helpful, which is a rarity lately.

I guess I assumed it was, but I know where that could lead...
I do know that their mobile sight seems a bit quirky, I ordered from my desk top and found it easier. I also cross-referenced bulb base types with (I think) Rock auto. They didn't list some bulbs though. I like superbright, but there are a few more sites to use for reference.

mine told me what bulbs it was for the instrument cluster an how many for my 01. maybe it doesn't list it for the 04.
11-21-2014 03:17 PM
Ryan Angela These are for the instrument panel.

Attachment 1665481

These are for the HVAC panel


Attachment 1665489


This is what I got for the auto gear indicator. TOO BRIGHT!

Attachment 1665497



It was distracting, so I replaced it with something else, I'll look for that one.

I know how I can attach it to the roll bar, but not sure how I will attach it to the front, since there's no bar. On mine is just a metal loop type thing in between the visors. Ideas, or pics from anyone who has done it? Just for an idea I'm playing with.
Smittybilt also did ine

Brandishing?.....a Machine Gun?

Brandishing is physically holding in such a manner that could be construed as threatening. Involves the articulation of the observer and in what manner the gun is being handled....in the "holster"....brandishing isn't an issue.

A machine gun....well...all guns are technically machines....but one would assume you are referring to a "fully automatic" firearm....which from the pic....there is no way to tell.....at best it is a SBR(short barreled rifle).

Just saying....

Might look into something this for my short shotgun also.........
Maybe a rifle holster for an atv could be made to work.
