I added about 6 washers to gain more thread, it'll get tight and then spin loose..im thinking the threads in the mount location are f**ked up

If you added more washers I am willing to bet the bolt isn't getting tight enough. Take some out.

Did that too and the bolt does the same thing..I was thinking of just going out and finding a bolt at home depot with more threads on it?

Ok so I'm having problems with the core support bolt. I can't get the bolt to come loose. I have the nut off the top but the threaded washer is spinning with the bolt. I've tried channel locks heat and the impact. Any ideas

who are you talking to?

Most people run 33" tires with a 3" body lift. Most if not all the information in this thread pertains to a 3" body lift.
