    ya know...the cable that connects from the tail gate to the bed..that bolt appears to be a 5/16 and since I have no bedsides, I have nothing to screw into. When I attempted to use my 5/16 coarse thread nut, the thing screws a little bit and then get damn near impossible. I also tried a fine thread..same thing. I am using a small bolt that doesn't have thread all the way up temporarily but me no like :mad:

    It's metric fine thread. It's f'd now. You'll have to run the right size tap in it to fix it. Look on the dealer parts guide to find it.
