Mounting N-fabs

I bought some cab length n-fabs for my 08 but they didn't come with any mounting hardware. Can I reuse my factory mounting hardware or do I need to buy new bolts?

If you can get those clips off the body with out breaking them, you should be able to use them.

I had them on my 2005 6.0.....

You can but I suggest you either get the hardware from N-Fab or get some #8 Nuts/Bolts/Washers to mount them with. It will be so much easier and they will withstand more weight.

No I don't know the size but I can look under my truck tomorrow and let you know.

They are about 1 1/2" - 2" long.

Should be pretty standard grade 8.

Ok well i'm hoping to get them installed tomorrow. I guess I'll go pick up some hardware tomorrow. Does Home Depot/Lowes carry grade 8?
