PSC Tramp Stamp Using OEM Bolts

The recent thread in the FS section prompted a few PMs about this, so here's my scientificical method:


1) Take a piece of construction paper and trace the tramp stamp onto it

2) Cut the tramp stamp template out of the construction paper

3) Remove the OEM bolts from the cargo door

4) Place the paper template on the cargo door; center it on the indented area; and tape in place (double check)

5) Feel around the paper template to find the OEM bolt holes under the paper template and press leaving an indentation on the paper template

6) Remove the paper template and use something to punch holes in the center of each indentation on the paper template (I used a sharp #2 pencil)

7) Place the paper template on the tramp stamp and center punch each of the paper template holes you just made

8) Discard the paper template and drill out the center punched holes in the tramp stamp


I drilled holes small and made them progressively larger after making sure everything lined up and the size matched the bolts.


Hope this helps.

Why doesn't it come this way in the first place? And the spider should be part of the vent instead of the two lines shouldn't it to look better??? Just thinking out loud...

If the spider was where the vent was it would just be covered by the license plate.

Oh yeah I forgot, mine is supposed to go on the Shrockworks carrier deal but I still have it in the stock location. Liked this to cover the vent deal up but for my use it would look a little off I guess.

Nice idea. I plan on using the stock tire carrier as the template and drilling through the existing holes into my tramp stamp.

Agreed. Though i would prefer:

Another easy way to transfer the holes onto the tramp stamp would be to use your stock tailgate tire carrier. PIECE OF CAKE!

What did everyone do about the vents? I used some cover from our body shop and double sided taped it on. I just can't let water in there.

I've been thinking about that. Somewhere I was reading a thread where someone was saying something about that hole being necessary for back pressure if the airbags are deployed. No idea if this is true ...haven't taken the time to research.

I mostly covered mine with a homemade trampstamp. When I closed my door the back of the jeep would emit a little fart sound which was kind off funny. If I turned on the vents it would emit a constant whistling sound out the back as it was trying to I guess push air out, that became rather annoying. Not to mention my tramp stamp looked pretty crappy, right now I'm running nothing back there but I'll have to figure something out by fall when I put the top back on.

Made my own . . .

I used four of the factory tire carrier bolts with washers to provide back spacing and the other four bolts to hold the plate on. I then added a license plate that integrates an LED plate light and brake light.

I taped into the wiring harness inside of the gate, as well as the running light power from the rear passenger brake light. I also have quick disconnects inside the gate incase I ever want to take it off.

I left some space at the bottom for a sticker, just not sure which one yet . . . .

Yes, Grizzly the vents allow air to escape the jeep. Without them its a bitch to close the doors (especially with a hardtop) and it will probably strain your AC compressor if i had to speculate.

nice use of the factory bolts. i dont see any reason why it should be riveted when the factory hardware would work perfectly and it would be a lot easier and less permanent
