It's GM 3848495 not that I'm expecting NOS, because used is good so long as acid and rust hasn't eaten it away.

My original 7-5/8" bolt is in nice shape but is too short because a Legendary Topper adds height and it turns out the clamp I rewelded to fit over top of it is the short drop heavy duty battery type.
I don't have a standard battery clamp with a longer drop down to work with, but I'd rather get a longer bolt than strip all the coating off another clamp and relocate one of the angle pieces with new welds anyway.

Using redi-rod with a couple of nuts on the top is not a good look compared to the rest of the setup, especially after I send the modified clamp out to be plasti-dipped.
