    I need 12 of the little body bolts that hold on the factory mudflaps, if anyone has spares could you send them to me? I'll pay for shipping if needed. Thanks.

    x2, I have all mine but might need them for MOAB, they dont look like anything you cant find at a hardware store, unless you are talking about the clips

    I already tried the obvious hardware stores, but these bolts are apparently proprietary as they don't carry these. The threads are more coarse than all the other body bolts they have.

    Correct me if I'm wrong (and I very well may be) but don't these screw into a plastic retainer? It sure "felt" that way when I pulled my flaps. If so, anything close will work. I had to do the same thing when replacing front door speakers/adapters last week...

    "If" it's a speed nut (I think that's what they are called) anything close (thread wise) should work.

    Anything with a coarse "wood/self tapping type thread" should work. Those fasteners only have one biting edge. I'd bet if you've been laid off as long as I have you could rig something up.

    Again, I'm not sure, but, I just pulled my flaps last week, (thirty minutes before I got side-swiped by a tractor-trailer). They "seemed" to be into plastic retainers.

    You have me covered on time. But I've not drawn a dime since June. Starting to get a tad tight around my house.
