|botlfed98||anyone try tapping/threading the hole and just use larger bolts?|

I used a 18"x1"x1/8" piece of metal I had laying around the garage. Drilled a hole about an inch from the bottom big enough for the bolt to go through freely.
The write up I found for this is Nutserts and if folowed properly works well. This is an easy project if done right. Don't seat a nutsert completely and they become a booger to remove. I had to punch one into the frame hole after cutting the bolt. Sucker started to spin and would not go in or out. Other than that it was a piece of cake.

|Triple88a||I dont know at exactly what year but they changed the style. The older style have 7 bolts. 4 in the front and 3 in the rear. The newer style seem to have some kind of notches on top and screws on the bottom.|

I think there is 3 on one end and 4 on the other end on the 97 thru 00 and only 2 on each end on the 01 thru 06.

|KellyK||my 99 had a triangle shape bolt pattern. three on each side of the step.|

First thing, check your mounting bolt pattern on the steps as the 97-2000 has like 7 mounting holes and I think the 2001-2006 has 4 mounting holes IIRC.

If your jeep didn't come with the steps the holes are probably blank. "not threaded".
They use nutserts to bolt to the frame. You can pick up the nutserts and the nutsert tool at the dealership.

|twinstackram||Well my plan was to use the factory steps for now for a little extra protection being winter and all plus this would let me do some other mods first,got a pretty long list,thanks for the responses,I'll check tomorrow and see if I can figure out what the bolt size is.|

should be... mine are.
i took mine off to put some tube steps on.. now moving up to rock sliders...lol

|twinstackram||maybe I need to look closer,are the holes threaded?|
|02-04-2009 07:31 PM|
|KellyK||should bolt right into the holes... i have a 99 and i took my factory steps off and they bolted right into the frame...|

I am a newbie and I'm going to ask a stupid question,my son had a 99' and ours is an 06' when he got rid of his he took his factory steps off,my questionis this will they fit my 06' and if they will how do they mount,I see the holes for them in the frame that's where I get lost,what am I missing,I'm pretty sure when I here the answer I'm going to feel like a real IDIOT,thanks
