Door hinge removal - socket size

I'm going to remove my door hinges this weekend to bed line them. For the life of me I can't find anywhere what size socket I need to remove the hinge that is attached to the body. Can someone who has done this help me out?

Also - looks like I need a #50 torx to remove the hinge from the door... let me know if i've heard wrong

#50 is correct, it will remove the Torx that attaches the door to the frame. Also #50 as will to remove the hinge from the door.
I need to remove my Torx and emory cloth them and a LIGHT anti-seize as well.

I couldn't find a #50 torx at ace, lowes, or Home Depot. I found it at Auto Zone. Just an FYI so you don't go driving all over trying to find one. Unless you wanna go for an extended ride in the Jeep...if so, forget what I just said.

I "think" I bought a set of various Torx fittings at Home Depot a while back... just to have various sizes for those wretched fasteners...

Good to know.. I was hoping to get one made by Kobalt to match my tool collection in the making, but I didn't find anything online.. will go looking before the Jeep gets here so I can spend more time enjoying the Jeep instead of trying to find tools.

All the kits I found only go up to #40 Torx.

Or what you can do is drive around to all those different stores, but don't get out. Just get in their parking lot and then suddenly "remember" "Oh yeah...someone told me they don't have it!" at each store. Then end up at Auto Zone and buy the #50 there.

Thanks! But if I'm not mistaken the part of the hinge that is attached to the body of the Jeep is a hex head - that's the size I can't find anywhere. Or are you saying this is also a #50 torx.... i guess I could go outside and look at the car myself but i'm too settled at work at this point
