Where to get factory body bolts HELP!!!

Ok so I have a 95 yj that the PO put a 3in BL on it and I am wanting to take it off. However I cannot find factory bolts anywhere. Does anyone have any input? I want to get this done so I can get my suspension lift. Can I get the specs of the bolts and just get some grade8 bolts? What are the specs?
Thanks everyone!

They should be UNC 7/16 and 1/2 sizes. The front one should be the same as the 2 over the rear axle. The middle 3 pairs and the rear-most pair should be the same. Not a big deal if you pull one out of the mount, measure it, and then go get 11 matching bolts, just 3" shorter. Don't forget to get matching flat washers with the new bolts.

Before removing the 3" body lift, take a look at your rubber mounts. MTL, you'll need to replace these as well. Might as well toss in a poly body lift mount in its place. New bolts will come with it, but the lift will be 1", 1.25" or 1.5" of your choosing.
When you put in new bolts, use antiseize on the threads.

Yes I also need new mounts but didnt want to but a BL back on, just stock cause im going with a 4" suspension. Do they sell a stock mount kit with bolts? I searched for like 2 hours yesterday with no luck
