Stock Body mount bolt size?

I'm about to remove my BL. The stock bushings are still in place but I need to know the correct size of the original bolts. I don't think these 3" longer BL bolts have enough threads to cut down. Any tips or opinions on removing BLs would be appreciated.

I have enough of the stock bolts I could probably give you. I'd have to check. Let me know if you are patient enough to have them shipped.

I can't remember, but just measure the bolts you have and subtract the size of the BL from that to get the size needed. A lot of folks will say grade 8 which is fine, but I've done many installs and removals and always use grade 5, I've never had a problem.
