If you have a hitch or skid plate over your gas tank, its those bolts.

they are studs, as on both ends are threaded. the top goes through the frame rail into the welded nut on the bumper bracket, and the bottom goes down for attaching the skid and/or hitch. they are a pain to get out. best luck is using 2 nuts with a locknut in between them. or, if you can, weld a nut onto the bottom of the threads. top and bottom are both right hand thread. then, to replace them use bolts up from the bottom. size m12
