i believe it is a T55, which can be a little harder to find. do yourself a favor and get some grade 8 hex head bolts and replace the torx. you will be much happier with that if you ever need to remove them again. i have been slowly but surely getting rid of all of the torx on my CJ and i am glad that i have been.

Yup, you are right Jgano. They are T55. Also do yourself a favor and spend more than a buck on the torx bit at Harbor freight. Odds are those bolts have never been out of your bumper and if you use a cheap bit and round it off or mess up the bolt then you are going to be PISSED.
