Default bed bolts

I got torgue bolts like the octagon ones and I was wondering what size are they and how to get them out.. just the ones in the bed. To paint them. Do I have to get a nut on the bottom or just unscrew.

===============================
If you've got regular bolt heads, then somebody has changed them, as all Rangers have a star-head bed bolt. With that bein said, you will just have to look under to see if they used the same size bolts & used the original clip-nut or used a nut & washer. If its the later, then it will take 2 people to get them out.

Good Luck!

what he said, and those are stock bolts so the clips should still be in the frame. Just unscrew them and screw them back in. Might not hurt to hit them with some pb blaster the night before.
