    huck bolts, have to be cut off.

    they are supposed to be sturdier than the average nut/bolt combo

    Huck bolts cut the side(Where the nut should be). Easy to cut off and put normal bolts back on. My old 07 9400 had these

    Hmmm, most trucks are put together with them, the last 20 or more years. Torch makes short work of them when needed.
