Weld RK CA mounts instead of bolt

Think it would be better to skip the bolts and just weld the RK CA mounts?

Use the bolts and sleeves.. and go ahead and do some stitch welds,bracket will never move after doing that.

Re: Weld RK CA mounts instead of bolt

I think even if you didn't use the bolts, the sleeves at least would be helpful I think in reinforcing at least a small part of the frame. But if you've got the holes drilled, throw the bolts in there.

I'm installing some TNT stiffeners in 3 weeks, and I plan on getting the RK kitlater. Since it will be on top of the stiffeners, I can safely weld all the way around it, But i'm still planning on putting the bolts in.

Re: Weld RK CA mounts instead of bolt

With sleeves welded to the frame and tightened properly it will never go anywhere. stitch welding only can make them even stronger ! everyone wants bolt on.. i personally don't see a problem with welding on a 4x4 rig.people been doing it since 4x4's have been around.
