    Alrighty, so toyota seems to have made a bo bo by using torque bits in there bed's to hold em down, mine has been stripped beyond re-using, so my question is, for those in Canada, how much would one of these bolts cost to replace?

    Wait. How did you strip them and why did you remove them in the first place?

    Was putting in our own home made D-rings because I'm not paying 20 bucks per ring, so we had to remove the bolt to put the d-ring clamp down and bolt to secure it, but it stripped on it's way out. I'm going to call the dealership I just wanted to get an idea of how much they cost and roughly how long I may have to wait if they have to order them.

    And I swear theres a liner in there? Unless it is composite?

    Firstly, it is a Torx fastener and Toyota didn't make a "bo bo", most pickup truck beds are held in place with Torx head fasteners, as are the floorrs of most heavy trucks and trailers. This is because the surfaces on the bolt head contacted by the tool are internal to the head and there fore less likely to be damaged by cargo in the bed.

    The bolts fasten the bed to the frame. Not the sort of part that you can get at Canadian Tire or Part Source.

    I still think they made a bo bo, they are by far the easiest bolt heads to strip...but that's beside the point. Any idea how much they cost?

    Yeah, went to look at crappy tire and home depot but they have some pretty decent threads on there that I don't think crappy tire or home depot could replicate.

    I have never seen a Torx bolt stripped, unless phillips bit was used. Best of luck.

    One can do it, if one uses the wrong tool.

    Not a small one, but when you're torquing on one with a ratchet wrench they strip out fairly easily.

    Used a number 55 torque bit from my mastercraft tool kit which fit perfectly in the top of the bolt.

    I still haven't really gotten an answer as to how much they cost...

    Actually, I have no idea, but that's a pretty good guess.

    Because you still haven't gone on Fastenal and looked up the price yourself. What, we gotta do everything??
