Factory Skid Bolts?

So, my good old AX15 unfortunately kicked the bucket while deep in VT leaving me to get back to NH through all the hills and long stretches of country in 1st/2nd gear

New clutch, flywheel, and reman ax15 are on the way and 2K+ is going into my 99' that I would have liked to use for a new rear and gears to go from 33x10.5 to 35's. However, last piece of the puzzle is getting new factory bolts for the skid plate when it goes back on. Are these going to be relatively inexpensive just getting them from the dealership that is nearby? Can they be ordered for cheaper off some sort of mopar dealership site? Just asking in advance because somehow I feel as though I would have been shocked by the price of 6 TJ skid bolts straight from the dealership.

Thanks

I could absolutely do that. If you don't mind me asking, my jeep isn't currently at my house it's in the garage so off the top of your head do you know exactly what bolt I'm looking for?

Edit: Also, im assuming I will also need the nut-serts. Any advice on where to go looking for those?

Thanks

Most likely they are the 1/2x13 bolts, which you can get the OEM cheap from Daveys Jeeps.

The AX-15 was in Jeeps before 2003 which is when they switched to the metric nutserts and transfer case skid bolts. Or, if his transmission is stock, then his bolts are 1/2-13 with a taper under the head.

Davey's should have plenty of them at a good price if just the bolts are needed.
