bed bolts

wasnt sure if this thread is in the right spot. but im taking the bed off my truck to get rid of rust and sure enough the bed bolts are not coming off and i tried everything, so they are going under the torch wed. i called a local ford dealer and they want $10 for each bolt and $4 for each nut/clip. does anyone know where i can get these bolts at for alot cheaper.

Re: bed bolts

I may get crap for this but as long as you get some grade 8 bolts and nuts and you will be good to go.

Re: bed bolts

I tried welding nuts to top of mine and then the nut/clip underneath just broke. Plasma cutter time...
