Bolt length and pitch for tire carrier bolts

Have any of you measured or had to replace the stock tire carrier bolts and recall their length and thread pitch?

I'd like to source a few Torx Security Bolts for use on my tire carrier but I'm too lazy to remove a stock bolt and take it to the hardware store to determine the thread pitch.

Those simple socket head bolts seem like the Achilles heel for trying to prevent theft of the spare. I have keyed lugs nuts and a cable lock but it all depends on the carrier staying on the Jeep.

Thank you. Seems to be a common enough bolt but security bolts in that size not so much...

Maybe I'll drill a couple extra diagonal spaced holes on the carrier and rivet it. That should slow them down.
