    This hardware kit is so much stronger than the OEM plastic clips. You will need additional grade 8 installation hardware. I wore out 4 sets of bolts during the process. This is NOT for the faint of heart. You will need to take a power drill to the truck to open up the holes for the inserts to fit. Go slow when you install this kit so you don’t mess up your truck! It’s worth it though.

    As a follow on to my first review, you will want to run a 1/4-20 tap through each insert after installation to clean up the threads.
