Need someone to verify this for me. Does your door hinges have a washer? I included a picture below and circle the washer in red. Which one does your door hinges looks like? The left or the right?

That insert is available for all the hinges of every door. Is that correct? Thus it should look more like the picture on the left.

Yeah, unless they’ve been replaced with different types of inserts. Mine have a black line there because I replaced mine with Delrin inserts.

Yeah the stock ones are thicker than these Delrin ones. Mine looked like your right picture before I replaced it.

Your left pic does look a little thicker than I remember mine being.

These looks more like the picture on the right, where the insert is not as visible.

It’s weird seeing these hinge pictures that have the nuts still being used. Do you guys never take your doors off? Mine came off the first time and I never put them back.
I take mine off occasionally but keep them bolted on when they’re on the Jeep to protect the threads, keep water and crud out, etc.
