    Actually the all-thread that is available at any hardware store is the 
same grade as the anchor bolts. 

    US Tower doesn't supply J-bolts anymore; what you get are the anchor 
bolts with a nut welded on the bottom end. That's all you need - do that or 
put two back-to-back or epoxy one on and you'll be all set.
