Help needed finding right sized screw.

It's a long story. My 1999 Wrangler sport had deluxe armrests. I didn't like them because they got in the way, especially if the passenger seat was forward...you couldn't close the passenger door.

So I removed them and just used the pocket at the bottom of the door to grab hold of the door to open and close it. But I saw these quadretec door straps...similar to the standard ones in most wranglers. So I bought them. But they didn't come with the screws and I foolishly didn't keep the screws from the former arm rests.

Could someone tell me what screw I need...the thread etc. I've been to two stores and I can't figure out if it is standard or metric. I'm thinking it is standard 6 or maybe M4-.7? Everyone I try seems to bind so before I strip them, I thought I would come here.

thanks,
Joe

No idea. If it's being that much of a pain just drill and retap it with whatever you've got.

I see you have several Ace Hardware's in Green Bay. If they are ANYTHING like the three we have here Las Vegas, you shall be appropriately amazed at their bolt / nut / fastener aisle (s!). Spend about three bucks getting a spread of M4's, etc with different thread sizes and try them out in the parking lot until you get the one you want. Seriously, it should be that easy and that cheap.

Thanks! I will do that. I actually went to a Jeep dealer's part's department after posting this to set the actual size and part number. So I have that and will see if Ace Hardware is the answer...because they want over 4 dollars per screw at the dealership/Mopar. Can't believe it.

The screws for the strap handle on inside of doors go into little clip on nut like gizmos so if not lined up right even the right screw will not grab if clip on not slid sideways away from hole on inner trim panel

I would just pull off one of those clip on nuts and take it with me to hardware store

I gave up and just dropped the 2 dollars per screw at a local jeep dealer. The local junk yard wouldn't even bother with me buying a few screws off of them.... I will make sure the clips line up. I noticed that one of them is off a bit.

The best way I have found for any miscellaneous parts is to go to moparparsoverstock.com you can find the diagrams for everything and look up the part #s and descriptions. Then I go to fastenall to buy the bolts. Good lock
