MOUNTING TIPS AND
IF ANYTHING OTHER THAN FINGER PRESSURE IS REQUIRED TO THREAD THE NUTS
ON, THERE IS A PROBLEM. MAKE SURE THE NUT IS NOT CROSS-THREADED AND
THERE IS NO DIRT OR DEBRIS IN THE NUT THREADS, NOR THE BOLT THREADS.
OVERTIGHTENING STAINLESS STEEL WILL RESULT IN GALLING AND THREAD
DAMAGE. IF YOU'VE DEFORMED THE WASHERS, YOU HAVE APPLIED TOO MUCH
TIGHTENING TORQUE. A 3/8-16 DIE OR TAP MAY BE NECESSARY TO RESTORE THE
BOLT OR NUT THREADS.
IF YOU LOSE THE HARDWARE, OR EVEN THE RUBBER PIECE, THEY ARE READILY
AVAILABLE AT LOCAL RETAILERS. HERE IS A BREAKDOWN OF THE PARTS PER EACH
(2) 3/8-16 JAM NUTS
(2) 3/8 NYLON FLAT WASHERS
RUBBER TUBING ON JK PEGS IS 7/32" WINDSHIELD WASHER VACUUM TUBING, FOUND
AT ANY AUTO PARTS STORE, USUALLY SOLD AS A SEVERAL FOOT ROLL FOR $3-$5.
RUBBER TUBING ON CJ/YJ/TJ PEGS IS SMALLER. YOU CAN USE 5/32", 1/8", OR
WHATEVER IS AVAILABLE. IT ALSO COMES IN SEVERAL FOOT ROLLS FOR ONLY A
FEW BUCKS. CUT IT TO LENGTH AND SLIT THE SIDE, THEN GLUE TO THE ANGLED
EDGE WITH YOUR CHOICE OF ADHESIVE. SUPER GLUE OR EPOXY WORK FINE.
Should any surface oxidation or discoloration occur to your pegs you have several options to
restore the look. The first option is to use a brass or stainless steel wire brush to buff the
area. You can also sandblast the pegs, which is what we do. Or, you can paint or clear coat
the pegs when you receive them. If you paint, be sure not to get paint in the bolt threads.
Thank you for your business and enjoy the JeePegs!!!!
JEEPEGS HOME PAGE
|JeePegs include mounting hardware such as
nylon washers and jam nuts. Your choice to
use these items is optional, the pegs work as
they are supposed to just setting in the
hinge. If you would like to secure them from
easy theft or keep them in a fixed position,
then use the hardware. To the right is a
picture illustrating the proper use of the
hardware. Correct installation order is peg-
washer-hinge-washer-jam nut-jam nut.
When tightening the jam nuts, install the first
nut until finger tight, then tighten with a
wrench just until the peg is snug and will not
freely move. Hold the first jam nut with a
wrench while tightening the other nut against
it, hence the phrase 'jam nut'. The first nut
secures the peg, while the addition of the
second locks both nuts in place.
