CJ Hi-Lift Jack Hood Brackets - Bolt Question

hey guys!

I designed these hi-mount/trail light mounts for the YJ's and found that the CJ's have the same bolt pattern. Makes it nice as they'll work for both. But, I saw a CJ that had bolts which recessed into the hinge. Do they all do that? Or where those particular ones custom? I'm curious because if they do, they won't recess with these brackets installed.

Let me know your thoughts, thanks!!! Im selling through YJMOUNTS.COM and eBay...

A picture of a CJ hinge on the hood, with 1 bolt removed would be sweet... I'm really curious what the bolts look like (not) in the hinges. Tapered? Flat bottom? etc...

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!

I've now seen two different CJ's, one had recessed bolts and one had non recessed bolts? Anyone know what is stock on the hood hinges? Recessed (bolts inside, flat to the top of the hinge) or non recessed? (bolts tighten down on top of hinge)

Depends on the year. Mine had regular hex head bolts. Now I have some rounded torch head bolts. I'll try to snap a pic later.
