I also made him aware that they have the years all wrong on their site... I think he got it straight, finally, and said they'd make the correction.


No corrections yet http://t-rex-racing.com/catalog.php?category=32
And they never even replied to my Email.  Perhaps hearing it multiple times will help, though.

Did I see any new bolts in the kit? If so check for correct sizing with a corresponding nut even if you have to go to the hardware store. Be sure and clean old thread locking compound from bolts  and holes. Test fit bolts before reassembly.

Yes, all new hardware comes with it.

M8x30, M8x60, M10x70, and nuts. Spacers...
No Locktite provided.

It also says, "Medium strength thread lock compound is required for use on the all bolts involved with the installation." (Direct quote, I didn't make this typo...)

The instructions say,"The bolts are made of the strongest grade 12.9".

Slider pucks are made of UHMW-PE... Solid.

"Aluminum threaded studs are made of aircraft grade aluminum alloy 6061-T6 and anodized using Japanese UV- resistant dies and treatment process."

Torque specs they provide-
"In general, they are 30-35 ft/lb for 10 mm bolts, 40-45 ft/lb 12 mm bolts."
Bolts attaching to the aluminum bar... 12ft/lb.

They also have a large paragraph disclaimer...

Pucks are all replaceable.
Email- customerservice@t-rex-racing.com.
Phone- 972-243-7868.

As mentioned before, I bought mine on Ebay, complete kit includes front engine guards, rear bag guards, and front axle sliders. $309.99, free expedited shipping Fedex.

You can also buy the sets separately.

+1, gPink!
Instructions also stress to make the initial installation of all bolts finger tight at first.

They also have a line that says, "T-Rex Racing requires that this product to be installed by a certified technician."

Guess it's fortunate for me that I hold Master's Certification from ASE...?
Guessing that makes me "certified"...

(I always figured that card they gave me to carry in my wallet just meant I was "certifiable"...
Lol
 ;)

Started looking closer today at the kit, and decided to test fit a few parts.

Then, I noticed this.....



Looks like they slipped a bit when they welded the insert...
Got some slag inside the thread.
So, looks like I get to buy and use an M8 tap now...

Now to fix those threads...
This required a M8x1.25 tap.



Now those threads work properly.



Just a small oversight on their part, but still should have been caught and repaired before it left the factory, IMHO.

No biggee, though. Hopefully, the rest is good, and everything lines up.

I loosely assembled the rear bag guard setup together, and measured the total width...
40" wide.

Also,
They tell the metric size and length of the bolts, but not the thread count.
I had to figure that part out.
(Another small oversight, but important detail.)
