    Default Rivet Nut Gun and inserts

    Not a Jeep part but I think it will prove usfull in many Jeep additions.

    Heavy Duty Lever Rivet Nut Gun $115.00
    got this from Grainger shipping was quick, came the next day, I am 3 hours from them [St Louis].

    inserts
    Rivet Nut, Knurled, Zinc, 1/4-20x0.684, Pk40 $25.50

    Rivet Nut, Knurled, Zinc, 5/16-18x0.72, Pk25 $19.10

    enough inserts on the tub and I can emplace all my reactive armor LOL.

    I'm gonna try and use it tonight on the light bar I made and whatever else comes to mind then follow up here.

    maybe a ammo can attachment, lights, useless inserts on the tub to make people wonder wtf etc

    I have one just like that I paid $200.00......No regrets.
    I have the 1/4 and 3/8 inserts.
    The key is to put a little anti-seize compound on the bolts before installing.
    It will be easy to remove later on.
    If you don't give up---You will never fail.

    Yes it [rivet gun] works great, anti seize is awesome also we have a quart jug of it.
    gotta watch the 1/4x20 mandrel it bent because I tilted the gun too much.
