    Looks like im going to have to go shopping for this stuff and try it myself. Been wanting links on my truck and nobody has had any instock but if i can save myself from spending $70 plus tax on them why not. Thanks for this.

    Nice find. Always handy to have around, and the 3mm and 4mm should handy for cleaning up screws or ends that you have to re-use but have gotten damaged.

    Also, you can also use 10-24 all thread, just need to make sure you tap the revo rod ends first. It add's a bit of weight down low and you'll never have to worry about bending one if you sleeve it with stainless haha. I picked up some stainless 10-24 from home depot.

    10-24? Wow, that will be nice and strong. I didn't realize there was enough meat in the rod ends to let you thread for that large of material. Good stuff!
