Folks,

Just got my Bestop underseat lockbox and will probably install it tomorrow morning. Looks like a solid product.

I was surprised to see the instructions don't advise you of a particular torque setting for your front seats after the install.

Anyone have any input on either the torque I should use or at least where to find the proper number?

Thanks,

:whistling: Not familiar with the lockbox, but if it uses the seat mounting bolts--they're supposed to be about 45ftlbs-

Sorry if it didn't help-

Good luck

They do indeed use the seat mounting bolts Jimbo, so that was perfect. Thanks. :thumb:

Do you mean as opposed to thread locker? I was planning on running a line of blue thread locker on them before twisting them down . . .

:D--Don't give me too much credit-I don't even have shoestring shoes any more, they're either Nevados /w straps or boots with cord/zippers-


With all you know about Jeeps and Jeeping, there couldn't be much room left for anything else.... It's amazing you know how to tie your shoes. Figuring out a woman?.... forget it! :rofl::D
If I had to tie shoelaces I'd probably need a youtube video !

I used an 1/2" impact with a 18mm socket

What I did not understand was to put one strap under the seat bracket and the other on top
Seems to me that would make my seat set uneven so I put them both under

Maybe I misread the instructions

Don't need loctite.

Daggo's right about the original tightening of the bolts. I had to use a breaker bar on both of mine to get em loose when I installed my Tuffy. Felt like 100+ on the bolts...easily.

I think I know what Kong did after dismounting from his Emipire State Bldg perch....

Jeep hired him to snug down various bolts n' pieces on my Wrangler....

It DID take a long handled breaker bar to get mine moving....and considerable 'grunt sounds'.....

re: "Seems to me that would make my seat set uneven so I put them both under"

I just used a handy spacer I had laying about, plus raise the seat front about 1/4" which made a TON of improvement in comfort for me.
