I just went through this install myself. The first 2 screws came out with no problem but the next 2 broke. I had to drill them out to find that one of them was completely seized to the hole. I ending up giving up and taking it to a shop to finish.Started on the Morryde tailgate. I PB plaster, heated and still have three that won't come out. Biggest problem is cheap Chinese tools. I have two Crapsman torx break off in the torx head of the bolt. Then went to Home Depot (all the local Sears have shut down) And broke 4 Husky torx. I now have to grind out the hardened torx heads before I can drill them out. Just once on a TJ project I would love to not have to drill or tap.

I here that! As much as I love Torx, I think Jeep overused them.... Just once on a TJ project I would love to not have to drill or tap.
I've still got a couple of broken off bumper bolts holding up my hitch receiver install. Welding the hitch on to the frame is looking more and more like a happening thing.Just once on a TJ project I would love to not have to drill or tap.
