Pozidrive Bits

Anyone know where I can find some posidrive #4 bits? I have ordered stainless replacement bolts (Mud UK)
and am having trouble locating these bits. I read on another post that I need size #4, but if anyone knows any different, or has any advice other than what has been posted, I would really appreciate it.

I bought a Snap-on 3/8" #4 Pozidriv and it works very well. It's hard to imagine trying to get the existing bolts out without a socket that is an exact and proper fit, and will stand A LOT of torque to break the bolts loose.

Here is a link to the Snap-on socket (not cheap but well made)

Apex (Division of Cooper Tools) makes them - should be available through any Grainger.

You dont need a pozi bit, but if you are trying to get the door bolts out you probably do need an impact driver.

They cost less than 20 bucks at Sears and they simply look like a black tube with a bit at one end. Mine came with a suitable bit for removing the door bolts. Just whack the end with a rubber mallet and very stuck fasteners will loosen very quickly.

Or hook up the appropriate socket to your IR2131Ti impact gun and fire away.

Well, I ordered and recieved the snap-on pozidrive bit. It worked for the passenger side up until the last bolt, and then it crumbled into pieces. So, I called Snap-On, and they are sending me another. The mud bolts look good, but are a little short for the inside of the doors. Unless I did something wrong, they wouldn't hurt to be about 1/4 in. longer. I could barely get the nut on the threads inside the upper door panels. And there definitely wasn't room for the washers. I tried to do only one section at a time, as recommended, but in the end I had to loosen them all to readjust the door for proper alignment.

The MudUK bolts have the same problem that all other aftermarket bolts do - they werent painted on the truck. You have to be very careful to fully seat the bolts. Of course they might also be too short!

They do come with lock bolts, but they are a bit short. I need to know the name of a product that will remove the rust stains from the hinges easily. I don't want to start the drivers door until I have a good rust remover.

Has anyone bought a #4 pozidriv lately? I checked at Snap-On, Matco, McMaster, Grainger, Northern Tool, Sears and of course useless Home Depot & Lowes and no one has them. I like the look of the Snap-On and would like to find something similar
