Since you don't have the truck to check against here is what I would do:

If they have them grab 4 off M12x120 and 4 off M10x120 and washers to fit each size. Make sure each one has at least 2" of threads at the end. More expensive, but cheaper than getting to the truck and finding out you have the wrong size.

When you get to the truck remove a bolt at a time and fit the biggest one that will fit out of the M10/M12 in each hole.

If you end up with 2 x spare M10s then use them for the side bolts (if they have them on a Rockware?) as those are smaller than the vertical ones. They may be a little long but they should fit if there is enough thread on the bolt.

That wrench in my pic above is the 'thin walled' one I bought specially to do these bloody things. I had to buy a set of double ended box wrenches to get it. It's Husky brand from Home Depot I think it was. I use that and the box end of a 19mm Craftsman combination wrench for when they are looser to do them.

Josh, there are so many things wrong with your picture that I donít know where to start. We'll let Barry or Neil fill in the blanks....

I was handling it with gloves because the hole I had pulled it out of was dirty from years of not being properly cleaned, and the penetrating oil I had used was getting everywhere. It's bigger than it looks in that picture. As you can tell I was really bored.

This is the longest thread (no pun intended) on a bolt that is probably the easiest thing to replace on the truck

Haha I know - I was thinking the same thing. I don't try to overcomplicate things I swear.

Jeff, I bought a digital caliper last night from Amazon since I figured I'll need it for this and later projects, so it should be here next week or so. I'll use the old bolts until I take this bumper back off to get blasted and then put the new ones on.

OK next part of the project is building my own winch fairlead license bracket for under $11 as opposed to the $30+ some of these other places are asking for just putting 4 screws through a license mounting plate.

I bought two Maglite D-Cell flashlight mounting brackets for $5.30 for the pair, and a universal license mounting plate for $5.30. Free Amazon Super Saver shipping, so $10.60 to my door. Pretty easy - just mount the maglite brackets in the holes I marked in red.

I have two fairleads at the moment - one that utilizes the huge nuts (from the ARB), and one that has the circlips on it, so I should be all set there

I wonder how fast that plate will disappear. Dan had his jacked a couple times. I would think a zip tie would stop this in addition to the clips

I thought that was his motorcycle plate(s) that was stolen, and they took the entire motorcycle with the plates.

Pines swallowed 2 of my plates. And one got stolen. And I don't ride with a plate on the bike.

The saga continues. RockWare came back off to get refinished. New sticker on its way. This time it only took 15 minutes to get everything off. I was going to run it as is for a year, but I figured since I'll be gone for the next week it'd be a good time to get it all done and out of the way.

3 bumpers on this in one week.

I think I'm just going to have it painted semi-gloss instead of PC, although the PC on the ARB was still perfect - even after a few rubs - so I've been thinking about it.

Bumper went out with Tom's stuff over the weekend and got blasted (pictured). Will be eurethene primed then painted satin or semi-gloss black, and I can pick it up next weekend. Was thinking of having it painted body color beluga black, but decided against it - would have been too shiny.

Stick with satin. It should come out looking good. Ask for some touch up paint when the shop does it.

Just about done. Picked it up from paint yesterday. It has some epoxy self-etching primer or something (it's yellow) and semi-gloss paint. The painter gave me the remaining paint and the formula, but I forgot to take a pic of it.

Drover over to Tom's place after the painter, and we turned the "Engage/Free Spool" clutch on the winch to the top, since it used to be mounted feet forward on the ARB and had to be turned to not interfere with the RockWare bumper front, since it mounts feet down. It was a little finnicky to get all of the gears to realign once turned but we finally got it.

Then I installed the Warn bracket for the solenoid, to mount it to the winch. The ARB had a place to mount it to the bumper itself.

Finally we then installed it all back on.

Oh, Tom also tried banging out the front fender from some trees that were on the trail.
