I just really didn't think there was a way my car could pick up some random bolt and chunk it out like it did. It was loud as hell and scared the **** out of me!

I keep telling people that you must have one of these in your garage:

Approved Vendor 2EE44 Thread Measuring Gage

It will save you infinite hassle.

That looks like a ASTM heavy hex bolt...and if you could tell the diameter and thread pitch with the above gauge you'd know for sure.




I've drawn (and made) so many of these...I'd say that one's a 7/8"-9UNC x 3 1/2"

Well then I feel like an idiot. I went out there later that night with a hammer and screw driver and pried it out of the ground. It took like 10 mins. of dodging cars and hitting it with a hammer to knock it out and it wasn't even my bolt.

Were you driving on a dirt road? How the hell did it get imbedded in the ground?

It was just plane old asphalt on a highway.
