Question tailgate lock

i'm doing a favor for a friend, he has a 99 jep wrangler sahara and the tailgate doesn't latch, the problem is that there are 3 bolts that should secure the lock mechanism to a plate covering the actual mechanism and attaching it to the tailgate.

My problem is that i don't know what the bolts are supposed to be in terms of size and length, etc. I am assuming they are torx

If anyone can tell me what those bolts are supposed to be, or give me any pictures of the bolts, I would greatly appreciate it

Not sure if this will help or not (for an '04).....

Bolt #14 is described as: SCREW, Pan Head, .19-24x.437
And there are 2 of them.
Not sure where a 3rd bolt is, except for # 10:SCREW AND WASHER, Tapping,.312-18x.120
And there are 2 of them also.
