They are readily available at Rock Auto, Amazon, Advance and numerous other locations. You will need a flex plate to replace your original flywheel.

Auto typically has a flex plate while manual has a flywheel

I was able to get Mopar OE torque converter-to-flexplate bolts from Jegs online for my 32rh. Your trans is 30rh if I'm not mistaken.... they should have them. Likely the same bolts.

These numbers are out of the '97 Mopar parts guide...

Flexplate bolts (4): Mopar p/n 06501099. BOLT, Hex Head, M10x1.50x13.20

Torque converter bolts (6): Mopar p/n 06034780. BOLT, Hex Head, .437-24x1.20

Caution that if that bolt head is like what my 32RH used, it has a special low-profile so it clears the torque converter.

Must be a typo in the 437 bolt size in Jerry’s post

I’ll guess 3/8 24 (standard fine thread)

Hey Jerry, what site did you use to look up those part list? Just for future use.

Probably just missing a decimal point as 7/16 is 0.4375

It's not a site, it's the Mopar manual. I downloaded all the TJ years from some site years ago, I don't recall where now though.

Also, the p/n and dimensions of those bolts weren't changed in the 2002 manual I also have a copy of... so I really doubt there's a typo in the '97 manual I pulled them from.

There are plenty of typos one that goes for sever years is size/pitch nuts on door hinge pins

As long as-part number is correct the rest never matters to the dealer

Yep they're all wrong with that .437 size..

https://www.moparpartsoverstock.com/.../06034780.html

Even the p/n that supersedes the original p/n shows the exact same dimensions.

https://www.moparpartsoverstock.com/.../06034780.html

But it doesn't look right to you so they must all be wrong, right?

Guess that might be how a Frenchman refers to a 7/16 bolt but fortunately not typical name around here

I was making some threaded domed aluminum short rods for door alignment pins and found that parts fishe was wrong on nut (tap size)

Then again your thinking that size doesn't appear right to you might just be wrong and all the Mopar guides might just be correct.

Ain’t thinking is based on measuring actual nut including thread pitch

And what it took to thread the aluminum to screw on

Once you added the decimal point became pretty clear it was a bastard name representation of a 7/16” bolt
