Fender Flare replacement bolts

I bought a used 2003 jeep rubicon on which I am trying to replace the fender flare bolts and washers (they look pretty rusty). Anyway, I am not sure who the manufacturer of the fender flares is but they are pocket style fenders. The screws and washers have some odd dimensions that I cannot find anywhere. The bolt is a button head socket w/ torx 10-32 x 1 ╝ with a stock head diameter of .551 which makes it very unique. The washer that goes with the bolt is #10 w/ OD of .630 and a thickness of .039. Obviously I want these in stainless now. Any idea where to find these? Thank you very much!

Could you replace both the bolt and the nut using stainless? I'm really not familiar with the way pocket style flares are mounted, but stock flares use a sheet metal screw and plastic nut for MOST of the mounting hardware.

Well, after doing some more research on it, I came to the conclusion that it might be a fender flare made by bushwacker. So I contacted their service department and they gave me some part number that most of the "auto-supply" stores would recognize and able to order. The kit is supposed to be around $35... now WTH is up with that. $35 that must be an awful lot of bolts and nuts. I checked on Allen-Fasteners.com and found something similar so that might be the way to go. Thanks for your reply though!!!
