I'm so glad I don't know what color gr8gatzby's truck is because if I did I'd end up having nightmares about hordes of small children crawling around under his truck.


so far no one has demonstrated he's saved any money over the 8.22

Ace hardware does have a few bolts. I would check there if nothing close get the ford bolts.

What's different about the Dorman bolt? The color?

This is true, but there is almost certainly an equivalent bolt available for less than $8. It won't look as nice, but it's available for less and it's no in a place one would see every day.

Even buying the 10 bolts for a little more money means that the next 9 bolts are pretty much free. M8x1.25 is a pretty common size. If nothing else, they'll take of a lot of brake rotors and being 10.9's they can be used more than once.

I'd go with the Ford bolt myself.

Well it would be nice if Ford put a picture next to the part number but they don't - they don't even tell you the size.

I got two Dorman flange bolts for my Buick that were identical to the OEM bolts except for the color -- the OEM bolts are silver and the Dormans are gold.

Trust me is isn't any easier on the other side of the counter. So many times I have printed out a picture and said to the customer "does the bolt look like that smudge or the little dot."

Hardware is the most difficult part of the cataloging, what hurts is most are sold in packs of 6-8-10 so the customer that only needs one has to buy 8 because I am not getting stuck with the other 7 to babysit for years and waste the owners money.

Use one from a hardware store until you can get the exact match next time you are at a U-pull-it junkyard.

I don't see 1mm making any difference. Use the Dorman bolt.
