    took the tailgate off and used the T40 to try and remove these hex screw washers or whatever they are called. Stripped the first one and broke my T40 down the middle. Didn't even budge. I've no idea how to get these out at this point. Does anyone know what the part # is for these cause I"ll have to order both I am pretty sure.

    Yeah, I've never seen a screw this tight to get out. I'm gonna have to try and tap it and back it out or something. This thing wont budge...

    On the underside of the head, there are teeth machined into it, sometimes it really grabs, try putting a small puntch into it and give it a good smack, it should back out, that works most of the time

    Look below in the "Products Discussed in..." section for a link to a hand impact tool set. That "should" solve your problem.

    They work great, my first use was back in 1975. Got a Honda motorcycle, and all the long bolts were aluminum at first. They would break right off if you didn't use an impact to break them loose.

    Dang brother, that sucks! I could tell right off the bat that mine were not going to come out without a fight, so I took the tailgate off and went right for the impact. They came out without an issue. At this point you may have to do some drilling if you've already stripped those screws, but either a conventional impact wrench or an impact driver may have saved you some headaches.

    Something like this would work well, so long as those screws are not stripped.

    EDIT: Just saw your follow up post.. Good call. You'll thank yourself next time you have a brake job too, haha.

    Got mine installed, hit them with a little prep and paint, fantastic product exactly what I was looking for. Way better than zip ties, hose clamps, etc.

    It's all In the prep work, most paints will work if done properly but the most effective way would be to powder coat.

    No problem, I highly recommend taking the tailgate off to get that screw out, some others have had issues trying to get it with the tailgate on
