Star drivers what size?

I was going to adjust the headlights on my TJ, and found all the screws have 6 point star heads on 'em, seems like 2 different sizes, one for removal of the light assy. and one for adjustment. are there other star head screws on the jeep that I need to be aware of? thanks for your input.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Yeah...most of the stuff on our Jeeps use Torx heads. Just pick up a nice quality Torx set and it'll have most of the sizes you need aside from maybe some of the larger bolts.

homer depot had 3/8 drive on sale. needed a 55 for tranny fluid change. have a smaller set like the foldable allen wrench sets that has come in handy(hard top remove/install) from the looks of it, the whole damn jeep is put together with them-be a good idea to find a whole set.

I thought the headlight ones were T-15?
But yeah.... like it's been mentioned, if you plan on working on your Jeep.... you need a good set of Torx bits.

You'll need a special T-15 torx-driver to adjust the headlights because standard torx-drivers are too wide and too short to fit into the headlight adjustment screws. The style you want looks just like a screwdriver which is skinny enough to fit down between the headlight and trim ring to the two adjustment screws.

^^ Jerry knows.
Trust him.
I replaced my headlights yesterday, using a standard T15 socket. It was a rough thing to do! I dropped it in behind the headlight once, and had to pull the headlight and start over.

Thanks all, you're right Jerry. I have a few torx bits but they don't work for the headlights. Sears has the torx driver kits? anyone know the size range I need to look for? smallest to the largest i may ever need. I think the roll bar is installed with them too, it seemed pretty big.
