    I would stick with what they already started. Get Grade 8 bolts. Now, you realize you're drilling 32 holes in your frame? I hope you have a powerful drill and top of the line bits because your gonna be in your driveway drilling for like 8 hours.

    I'm shopping for some. I'm just welding them.

    enough to get me there
    Weld them on. Forget the bolts. Weld ons are stronger. And if you decide to take them off, you won't have holes all over your frame.
