In the attempt to mount the Warn Winch behind the front bumper , it looks like I need to space the front bumper out just a bit more. So, I need some longer studs - maybe 1" longer, and can trim if/as needed. Local Auto Zone - has next size larger diameter, which I suppose I can drill everything out to fit, but wasn't really wanting to get away from stock/original diameter if possible. Does anyone know where/what else I can use????

I bought some grade 8 standard bolts for mine. Don;t remember what size but they have been in there for a couple years. Take the hook to home depot (or wherever you shop) and match them. Have since added a winch and they have held up well with pulling and winching.

I'm trying to use the stock bumper cover - for now, so, I don't have access to the bolt head to hold it. Suppose I can tack weld the head. " bolt fits fairly good, and I have Grade 8 here at work - " to " in Gr.8 up to 3" length in most all sizes. Just seeing if I have any other suggested choices.

Well, I made a sleeve to adapt the 12mm I think it was to ". Bolts fit tight in the bracket now....

Then welded this 3/16 rod to the bolt heads so won't turn...

That ought to do it...... cheers
