While I am doing other stuff I am going to replace the bed bolts and clips.

Found them online. Problem is they don't specify length. I have the following part numbers/links. Note that I want to stick with OEM, I do not want Dorman or any other kit out there. I am OK with paying $100 for bolts and nuts from Tasca.

Does anyone know which one is which? IE: Which one is the longer bolts that are attached at the front of the bed near the cab? Those are the two I really need to replace as mine were very rusty.

On Tasca Ford they have pictures of the bolts but I can't tell for the life of me which one appears to be slightly longer (by about an inch)

Bolt 1:

Well, going by the pics from the links you posted (Tasca), Bolt 1 is #12 in the picture (click the diagram at the bottom to get the note), which would make Bolt 2 #11Bed Bolts.JPG (the front, longer bolts):

Yep I get that, but what I am asking is which one is the longer bolt of the two? The picture reference of 11/12 don't indicate at all the length of the bolts nor whether they are the front bolts near the cab or the rear bolts at the end of the tailgate. I know I need 6 bolts. Two long, four shorter. But can't tell from the part numbers or pictures which one is the longer/shorter bolt.

If you ask me, just spend $45 on the whole set from Dorman. 6 new bolts and nuts.
