The Ubolts I got from CCOT came with the nuts/washers. They are the self cutting type which keeps them tight. I wouldn't use used Ubolts.

Honestly, if I was doing this over, I would buy the Man-A-Fre Ubolt flip kit.

Since you're going to do a spring over in a year, skip the flip kit.. otherwise it's an awesome upgrade for sprung under trucks.

And your favorite 4WP wholesaler has the U-Bolts in stock, you'll probably have to drive out to the one on I-70 though. ~$65, iirc, yes they come with nuts.

I suppose Toyota still has them, but are there others?
Hey Matt. I don't remember where I got those bushing. You can buy U-bolts at 4WPW or just about any 4x4 parts shop.

I thought they might have metric dimensions for the axle tube that would keep me from using standard ubolts. Nakman, you're letting the cat out of the bag a little too soon, me boy
