Hi Guys,
I was removing my running boards a couple of nights ago. Things were going surprising quick (thanks to some PB Blaster) until the middle stud snapped off. :doh:
If you remember, 5 bolts hold the boards on, and 1 bolt is welded with a nut that comes off.
Now, I am scheduled to get my new sliders from Slee on Friday and I am not sure about this. Would my best bet be to try to drill out the remaining broken bolt? Could I just match one of the existing bolts and use that?
Could I access the other end of the broken bolt?
Thoughts ideas suggestions appreciated...

Also, I am a :banana: kinda guy with :banana: kinda guy tools.


Thanks

Rob

I don't think the sliders mount to the body at all, just the frame. Are you worried about clearance? That shouldn't be an issue because of were the stud is.
