Installing my License plate relocation bracket, I somehow stripped one of the OEM tire carrier studs (bottom one)

Is the stud replaceable? rethreadable? Anyone go through this?

I assume it is safe to drive with 2 of the 3 bolts

Thanks

Those 3 studs are all on a plate in the spare tire carrier. I removed mine and tossed it when I put on the Teraflex Alpha HD tire carrier. You probably could find someone who replaced their tire carrier and get it. Good luck finding just that part.

I just swapped to the CavFab tire carrier and have the OEM plate with the three studs. Not sure where you’re at but if you covered shipping, I could try and package mine up to send to you.
