Hey, you guys are right about the drum not covering it all the way. I should have gone out to the garage to look first. Oh, well. I don't have anything in the holes and it's nothing to really worry about anyway.

ahhh... i see now.. the 5 on 4.5" bolt pattern on the wifes tj with the different drum..means my hole IS coverd.. hence no factory plug..
(i love it when my hole is covered)

I cant say I have ever seen a "plug" in these holes. A plug wouldn't keep anything in or out anyways as the drum goes over the axle flange and covers this hole. Sorry for being no help [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img].

Okay, So this is how things stack up: Smaller bolt pattern dana 44 axle flange "courtesy holes" are covered up. Larger bolt pattern wheels (the CJ's) have a large brake drum and wheel I.D. So the courtesy hole is halfway exposed. I don't wanna put on center caps, so if anyone can tell me where to get the plugs, I'm on it. Otherwise, I guess I'll fab up some sort of disc to pound in there. It's an odd size, so normal freeze plugs don't work.

Measure it with a set of calipers. Go the the local machine shop have them make you steel plugs and have them knurl the edge. That way you can pound them in and have the knurl bit in and hold.
