Bolt size for rear bumper frame rails?
 
Can someone tell me what the proper size/thread bolts are that I need for the two bolts that mount the rear bumper to the bottom frame rails?

Thanks in advance!

12mmX1.5 I*think*.
While some of the other frame bolts changed from standard to metric in '03, I'm pretty sure these were metric, at least '01-up.

On my '99 they're 12 x 1.75. Just took off a cheap tubular and installed a factory rear bumper and had to replace one of the bolts that was stripped. Had to go to Lowes to find one. Autozone, Advanced, PepBoys, HomeDepot and the dealer didn't have them.

I don't know where you are, but find a Fastenal dealer near you. That's where I go up here in the north east, and they'll do you right. Proper grade, TPI, stainless.....
