Installed my Rock Hard sliders today. In the process it appears that the passenger side center Body Attachment Bolt or Nut got stripped. Started the bolt by hand and got it finger tight just like all of the others. While tightening this one it appeared to be tightening then just got loose. Got the bolt out and very thin piece of thread came with it. Maybe 2 or 3 threads with. Bolt looks like the threads were rounded slightly for maybe a half inch.

So tomorrow I go searching for either a longer bolt, a different bolt, a tap to recut the nut, or something else.

What are your thoughts here.

Worst case I have an appointment with the dealer on Wednesday for something unrelated, A/C controls.

Ordered bolt and nut from dealer. It will be in on Tuesday. How difficult is it to replace the nut?
