Torx bit size?

I am a new Wrangler owner. I am replacing the standard front bumper that is bent. I don't have a torx bit set and was wondering if any knew the sizes I would need to remove the screws for both the bumper itself and the end caps? I would appreciate the help.

The main bolts that hold the bumper to the frame are T-55. I don't know the smaller torx bolt size for the end caps but you're better off just buying a complete set of torx bit adapters since your TJ has various sizes of torx head bolts all over. Most sets stop at the T-50 size so it's likely you'll need to buy the T-55 separately.

Home Depot sells a Husky torx set that will go up to a T-55. Less than $20.

YEP ... just bought one yesterday. That set sells for little more than the single T55 socket. It's NOT a heavy-duty set of bits, but it will do in the short haul.

I got the husky set mentioned as well as a set from tractor supply. Those two gave me T5-T60. There were only 3 or 4 doubles, but one of them was the T55 which is used a lot on our jeeps. Also, the correct torx bit for the end caps is "hammer", if I recall correctly.
