    I was putting the OEM brush guard on (ordered from Don Jacobs Toyota) and my neighbor was over kinda watching me. I had 3 of the 4 bolts in when a contractor showed up at the house. My neighbor said, "I'll finish it up"....I figured it's only 1 bolt, what the hell. SO I walked in with the contractor.

    When the contractor left (10 minutes after he arrived) I walked back outside and my neighbor had stripped both front bolts. These bolts came with the brush guard and are a brushed aluminum type color.

    Where can I get 2 replacement bolts just like these?

    Thanks! :cool:

    Do you have pics or any details (size, etc.) of the bolts?

    I'd suggest calling the dealership first. They should be able to get you the bolts. Otherwise, try a hardware store with bolts in hand.

    Give the bolts to your neighbor, then do what was suggested above...h-ware store should carry them; give him another opportunity to put them on right...;)

    "So I have this friend who stripped some important bolts out"...yeah right! Heard that before, the contractor visit was a nice touch though







    J/K OP:D:p Your stripped bolts should very easily be replaced by visiting a Lowes, HD, Ace, etc.
