Rugged Ridge seats not matching up

Just got a set of new Rugged Ridge factory style replacement front seats (from Craigslist) and the factory bolts don't match up as advertised.
I called their customer service for suggestions and they were very little help and not friendly at all. I doubt seriously I will ever consider buying any of their products again.
The seats seem to be decent quality but the overall outcome between the snag with the bolts and the unfriendly service may have just turned me away.
I guess I'm going to have to take the entire seat to a parts store and buy 8 bolts that match up. Not a big deal but one that shouldn't be taking place.
Anyone else have this problem (with the bolts, not the crappy service, lol)?

Hardware is an issue with a lot of parts. I got a bumper with SAE threads and metric hardware so off the to the hardware store. Plus the little workers overseas can't always count either.

You will end up with a collection of hardware after a while and soon be able to fix anything. Happy trails!!!
