Attaching In Bed Spare Tire Carrier

So I think I've figured out which bolts to use on the upper part of the in bed spare tire carrier but was wondering what type of bolt to use to attach the bottom of the carrier to the bed. Any ideas. Thanks

Thanks for your reply. Anyone out there have two of these bolts/nuts they would like to let go of? Please let me know. Thanks

I used generic carriage bolts(zinc coated to prevent rust). The square shoulders were too tall. I used a die grinder to bring the square shoulder down to the appropriate height. Bruce

I cheated on mine...I would have to drop the driver side travel tank and that would be a huge PIA so I welded the bottom. Easy enough to remove if needed.
