Question re. OEM Side Step


I recently bought a set of OEM side steps for my 2000 sport on ebay and they came without nuts/bolts. I assumed that it wouldnt be that big a deal to get hold of fixings for them and just called my local jeep dealers parts dept. who told me there was nothing they could sell me other than a completely new set of steps for $360! They're kidding right? Surely there's another way to fix these to the Jeep??

Any suggestions?

go to home depot and get a few high grade bolts that fit

Should just be standard bolts... find some body who has them and remove a bolts run to hardware store get correct bolts.

I'd take the hardware store option. You can save yourself a TON of money and also get stronger bolts. Personally if you have to replace them you might as well go with the strongest thing available to you!
