oil pan bolt size and knowledgeable eyes in Raleigh/Apex?

Afternoon all,
Having just obtained my 90 wrangler, I have yet to pick up a manual or supply of assorted spare parts I might never use. That being said, I am missing the oil pan bolt on the drivers side, side, closest to the front of the jeep. I'd like to pick one up on the way home tonight - I don't know size/pitch or if they are all the same length or not. Torque?

Also looking for someone in the Raleigh/Apex (NC) area that knows what they see when they look under a jeep to see if a lift job is done well, safe, that sort of thing and wouldn't mind taking a look at what I have. Or any other issues they might see with it. Thanks all!

Glad you figured out the bolts. Here is a web page where they sell lift kits and on the page you will find the install instructions. Most every brand listed has the install instructions. If you don't know the brand pick the height of the lift. Read the instructions and crawl underneath and start checking. You can also if you are really worried get a torque wrench loosen the mount bolts for the axle u-joints and shackles for the springs and retorque them. This will go miles further than someone else looking. You will learn a lot about your jeep by spending an hour underneath looking around. You may also find some other concerns. Let us know how this works out.

I plan to do just that as soon as the wind and rain lets up... I'm hoping I'll find something tagged or labeled. Thanks for the link!

Jokerchief is right, and I'm pretty sure he meant to say u-bolts. Retorque all your shackles, mainspring eye bolts, and u-bolts. Also, check for a transfer case drop kit and give it a once over. Check your rear drive shaft ujoints, especially if you have any vibrations.

AV8R - that was on my gotta check list - it's lifted and has 33.5s on it - I need to learn what drive line angles are/are not acceptable (too extreme to last kinda things).

173 - Just got my hands on my first manual yesterday (just a chiltons but it's a start). I did find the bolt information with the exception of bolt lengths- gonna pick up a handful this afternoon.
