how do I find the proper bolts/screws for my TJ ?

I have at least some of every set of screws ( 1 of 3 ) missing.. the rest are boogered up for the most part..
I can maybe get examples out of those partial sets... to use as a guide to buy more, right thread pitch, length, etc..
but I have some places that there are none at all ..
must I try to go to a dealer or is there another place to get a blow up diagram and listing of the proper bolts, nuts, screws, washers to replace the missing and ruined fasteners on my TJ.:: ?
I would appreciate your suggestions. I know that with an example I may go to one of the stores and get some cheaper replacements that will work fine.. but where there is no example to remove and size to... what to do ?
a manual ? a dvd disc? a list? a single blow up diagram?
a prayer? .. lol
what say you jeepers..??

If you have another one of htese bolts/screws you can pull it and test in these locations, you can go to any hardware store to match them up. I've replaced every bolt I've removed with a new Grade 8 equivalent.. and so far no issues.
