There are two different size threaded holes in the cargo area frame. Does anyone know what size/threading they are? Looking to fabricate some sort of surfboard rack and fishing rod holders.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the feedback. The thought of magnets never crossed my mind. They will work well for the rods. Too much over thinking on my part.

The larger diameter bolt is M8-1.25 and the smaller is M6-1.0.
I used magnetic hooks to hold a 78" level.
Where'd you get the hooks? Something I'd like to have around

The round magnets were purchased at Harbor freight and the hooks at Home Depot. The magnets come with a hole in the center with the backside hole (magnet side) diameter larger to accommodate the bolt. Not sure of the weight capacity but they are pretty strong . I was concerned about the magnets coming loose during a sudden stop and the level becoming a projectile but they are plenty strong for the weight I have on them.
