yo,
Nice offer 89project-1st-rspnfr!!!

also, confirm this pls;
"...78-91 Broncos use 4 short bolts (8mm head, 6x1.00x40mm) on each bedrail & 5 long bolts (8mm head, 6x1.00x70mm) in the upper sections. All bolts thread into U-nuts, except the 2 upper corners & the 2 rear corners which use captive nut plates. The bedrail bolts each use a clip stamped "L" or "R", but the rearmost bolts use the opposite clip. The clips for the B-pillar bolts are not marked, but the smaller tab goes down. 92-96 Broncos use 5 short bolts (tamper T-40 head, 8x1.25x30mm) on each bedrail & 5 long bolts (tamper T-40 head, 8x1.25x60mm) in the upper sections. All bolts thread into U-nuts, except the 2 upper corners & the 4 rear corners which use captive nut plates. The bedrail bolts each use a clip stamped "L" or "R", except the rearmost bolts. The clips for the B-pillar bolts are not marked, but the smaller tab goes down. There are also nut plates in 4 of the camper shell bolt holes: the 2 rearmost, and the 2 outboard at the top of the cab. They're just a heavy plate (1/4"?) with a threaded hole...."

Save yourself a massive headache (if you have a 92-96) when you get replacement bolts, and don't get the ones with the T-40 tamper-resistant Torx heads. Those are a massive pain in the ass. You should be able to get an identically threaded bolt, just without the tamper-proof heads.

Edit: They look like this; this is is one of the 5 longer ones that go into the rear of the cab, the bolts that hold the top to the sides of the truck are a little shorter. Took a pic next to the ruler on my Leatherman for a sense of scale.
