    I have misplaced my tube step bolts and the stealer ship want 1.00+ ea.
    Anybody know the bolt specs so I can go to the hardware store and purchase them?

    Thanks in advance

    Just get the bolt length, diameter and thread pitch and hit up the local hardware store. I would go stainless, which will probably run you near $1/ea anyway. I would support my local hardware store before the dealership no matter what they charged.

    I'd go to a Fastenal store and get stainless steel security bolts of the same size, in case someone wishes to make off with your tube steps...

    McMaster-Carr # 98093A543 It's a 50 pack for 10bucks (may be cheaper than 16 from the hardware store).

    Also approx 3mm or 1/8" thick washers go with some and thinner "D" shaped washers with others along with split lock washers.

    At the end of the day if the dealership will give the whole kit for $16 then that's probably the cheapest and easiest.

    Thanks sniklefritz.

    Those dimensions was what I was needing.
    Dealer has them listed as "tube step hardware kit" 12.00 bucks.. He is willing to order them before I pay to make sure it's the right thing. Nice guy. Gonna go with the dealer and see what he's got.

    No problem...I actually had the set right here so I just needed to measure them up. Came off with the reg cab tube steps I removed and have been meaning to sell.....one of these days.

    If I were you I'd just get them at the dealership for that price and save yourself the headache.
