    I acquired some really nice rocker guards without hardware. The pre-filled holes lineup underneath with some hex shaped holes in the body. What do I need to mount this and where can I get it? Thanks

    My TJ buddies say they were for mounting factory accessories like steps and guards, but they have never had a TJ with the accessories on them so they do not know how the mounting hardware would be used. Looks like a hole for rivnuts.

    I was thinking rivnuts, but wasn't sure. Glad to know I was going the right direction!
