Drilling into frame

What should I use, and what are some concerns when drilling into a frame for tubs, and whatnot?

Re: Drilling into frame

When I drilled my frame for my steering brace, I just used a regular old drill bit. Just make sure to try and paint any area you drill. Other than that, I can't think of anything to look for. Maybe make sure you're not going to drill into anything important.

Re: Drilling into frame

Avoid drilling into the top and bottom of the frame channels.
If you drill through the sides of the frame channel for a bolt on plate, use anti-crush sleeves similar to the OEM motor mount and exhaust hanger sleeves.
