Question Body mount problem...

Hey guys, I was taking off my tube running boards and then I was going to take off the mounts for them that connect to the body. Well they were rusted on pretty bad and I broke one of the bolts. My question would be is it ok to drive and not hurt anything? Is the best way to fix this by drilling and tapping? Also will these tube style running boards fit a YJ?
Thanks, Jeff

if its just one body mount point then I'd say your still good. I drove and wheeled mine that way for a long time (at least a year?) with the front passanger side body mount bolt missing. I had accidentally broken free the nut. But it wheeled and drove fine even with that one body mount bolt missing. I don't know how to remove and fix your bolt though. someone here will

Ya mine is the same one as yours. Front passanger one. I think it's going to be a hell of a job to drill and top this. I hope someone else knows an easier way.

Are you talking about the spot where they attach to the chassis? If they are like the side steps I have they are connectd using a nutsert. Might be easier to knock the bolt/nutset in and replace with another nutsert/bolt.

Yes the bolt that goes into the body with the rubber piece on it. I don't know if I can just knock the nut in or not. I'll have to look closer when I have time. Anyone else have this problem?
