    I search all over the internet and can't seem the find the torque spec for these bolts.

    I'm adding D-rings to my bed and would like to know what the torque spec is for these bolts.

    Thanks

    yeah just tighten them down good and tight. If your really worried about it just put some thread lock on the threads before you put them in.

    I added 4 D-rings to my bed bolts this weekend. They were not that tight from the factory, I was a little surprised from that but they are just holding down plastic.

    I added blue loctite to mine and just cranked them down until tight.

    The D-ring assembly wanted to spin as the bolt was turning. I was using a screw driver to try and hold the d-ring in position but it sill slid so I just got it as tight as I could with the d-ring in position.
