Wing to bulkhead bolts

Are the wide thread bolts that fix the wing to the bulkhead longer on a NAS truck with the A-pillar hoop brackets? Or do you have to switch out the captive nut inserts for a regular thread count and use a longer regular bolt?

I am putting a hoop on my ROW 90 and the bolts only tighten down one turn or so because of the added thickness of the under the wing bracket.

I switched out the captive nuts on the bulkhead to a SAE thread so that I could use regular bolts. Lowes seems to have a good supply of those. You can also find some stainless at marine stores or a good Ace Hardware.
