Default Grab Handle Mod Info Needed Pleaseeeeeee

Guys I have halted this mod as I need more info, I don't want to use rivets and I emailed Fxwannabe 2 weeks ago at more or less and no response as of yet, He uses nutserts for the install instead of rivets, I would like to do the same as they are much stronger. Here is where I am confused, Fxwannabe noted that he uses 1/4 20 or 24 nutserts and 1/4 bolts with washer, the latter part is simple, but the nutserts exact size I'm unsure about, Here is a website that has them but in 3-4 different lengths, that's what I need is the correct length.

http://www.pointe-products.com/Items...ywords=nutsert

1- 1/4-20 Nutsert Insert

2- 1/4-20 Thin Nutsert-Steel

3- 1/4-20 Large Flange Nutsert-Aluminum

4- 1/4-20 Large Flange Nutsert-Steel

And than here is a conversion kit, would this be the one?

1/4-20 Nutsert Conversion Kit

what exactly is this for, did your grab handle break off or come off?

and if your emailing Shane on the forums its prolly def going to be hit and miss. Im pretty sure he doesnt spend to much time on these much anymore and has been super busy. I talk to him through his personal email so ill try n mention somethiing if he doesnt get back on here iin awhile.

As far as I can tell those aren't different lengths but different lip sizes. The large flange steel would probably the strongest but I don't think it would really matter much. Not sure where they are going and what will be covered but if you are using a normal bolt/washer combo then you might as well get the large flange. However, I've never done it and have no idea what the grab handle mod is so don't hold me to it.

this is the mod that chugs your stock (A) pillars to grab handle (A) pillars, the nutserts seem to be either shallow and longer, and i want to be sure because the hole that the nutserts go into are only so long.

It's hard to tell because they don't have dimensions for any of their products. Even if they are different lengths, which I don't think they are, you should be able to grind down the end to fit whatever length you need. Plus it will be shortened some from the install.
