"7/16-14UNC x 3.75

bolts available at 4" or 4.5" $3.80 each

https://www.hi-tensilebolt.com.au/

I am thinking to simply place some 1/8" sheet alongside the frame rail, and use the slightly longer bolt

my presumption being this will reduce the concentration of stress upon the frame rail around the bolt head, and distribute it more evenly

reduce risk of frame rail cracking is my goal here

anyone disagree?
